Smart Residential Supply

 

The Smart Residential Supply (SRS)

srs1

Introduction
•Power IQ and Toshiba have partnered to develop high quality power electronics products.
•Products developed will be sold through the Toshiba organisation with all the associated warranties, backing and support
•The Smart Residential Supply (SRS) is a highly flexible battery storage product combining the premium Toshiba SCiBLithium Titanate batteries with the reliable & intelligent Power IQ power & control hardware.

The SRS is more than a battery storage system.

It forms an interface between the grid supply and the consumer, providing:
– A 230/240V regulated customer supply (programmable)
– Back-up power during power outages & off grid system during high fire risk periods
– A wide range of PV/Load energy shifting functions
– A number of demand limiting and load control functions
– An optional 3 phase power supply output
– A grid friendly low harmonic power system interface
– A range of remote communication & control options.
– A modular solution with potential to migrate to a stand-alone system
