Alencon Systems to Display Unique Solutions for Battery Energy Storage at ESA 2021

Alencon will demonstrate its latest, higher power DC:DC conversion solutions for battery energy storage applications at the Energy Storage Association’s 2021 annual conference in Phoenix, AZ

Alencon Systems LLC will demonstrate the latest version of its DC:DC converters for battery energy storage applications at the Energy Storage Association’s (ESA) annual conference in Phoenix, Arizona December 1 – 3, 2021 in booth #404. The Alencon products on display at ESA 2021 will include the latest version of Alencon’s galvanically isolated DC:DC converters, the SPOT and BOSS Version 7 series.

“As battery energy storage deployments continue to grow, the need for the benefits offered by Alencon’s patented DC:DC converter products continues to increase rapidly,” says Hanan Fishman, Alencon Systems President. “Alencon’s DC:DC converters unlock so many unique applications for battery storage, from pairing solar with battery storage, to augmenting existing battery energy storage projects to deploying more resilient, storage enabled Microgrids. The ESA’s annual conference is always a great forum to showcase these cutting-edge use cases.”

The BOSS and SPOT Version 7 series that Alencon will be demonstrating at ESA that offer higher power ratings than previous versions in the same, compact form factor as previous models. The Alencon BOSS – which stands for bi-directional optimizer for storage systems - is Alencon’s bi-directional DC:DC converter solution. The BOSS is ideal for the bi-directional charge and discharge of battery energy storage in DC distribution systems such as solar and storage. Earlier this year, Alencon was awarded its seventh U.S. patent for the BOSS product.

The Alencon SPOT – which stands for string power optimizer and transmitter – is Alencon’s galvanically isolated, uni-directional DC:DC conversion solution. The SPOT can be used for a variety DC:DC applications include pairing solar and storage.
