Ideal Power Inc., a developer of power conversion technologies, was selected by NEC Energy Solutions to supply its power conversion systems for select configurations of NEC’s newly launched DSS™ distributed energy storage solution. This new distributed energy storage platform targets commercial & industrial customers and includes lithium-ion batteries, advanced software controls, and Ideal Power’s power conversion systems.
The DSS is engineered as a modular, scalable system that will be offered by NEC in an easy-to-use package for solar installers, energy services companies and other parties seeking affordable battery systems that don’t require design and engineering expertise to put to use.
Ideal Power’s power conversion systems are based on its patented Power Packet Switching Architecture ("PPSA"), a revolutionary approach to power conversion that uses 100% indirect power flow to deliver a bi-directional, fully isolated conversion while eliminating a majority of the bulky passive components, such as the separate isolation transformer and bulk capacitors, that are used in traditional power conversion systems. Ideal Power’s technology is an excellent fit for NEC’s pre-configured, outdoor-rated DSS systems that give end users application and size flexibility.
