Determining the winner between Diesel Generator vs. ESS.

In today’s world, the old technology of getting power through Diesel generators in case of power failure is a thing of the past. As we see in India and other underdeveloped and developing countries, diesel sets are installed everywhere around us, whether we visit malls, shopping complexes, residential societies, or office complexes. They are generally placed outside complexes, and in case of a power failure, along with the power, they start making noise along with the air pollution, which gives us a feeling that we are still living in a polluted environment.

Su-vastika has developed the ESS (Energy Storage Solutions), having a Lithium battery as a storage solution that can be installed with or without solar to run the silent way so-called electronic generator called ESS. This ESS has a capacity range of 10KVA to 500 KVA and also looks great in any complex while providing reliable backup in case of a power failure.

 Advantage of ESS over DG Set

  1. ESS provides instant power backup.

One of the key advantages of ESS is that the DG sets break if there is a power cut, but it doesn’t happen with ESS. This technology starts instantaneously without having any breaks or jerks. While DG sets take almost a minute to restart the power through the generator, ESS is automatic and seamless.

  1. The running cost of ESS is low

It is important to note that the cost of running a Diesel set is 3 times or more than 3 times the cost of power supplied by the Power utility, which makes ESS a unique and cheaper solution compared to running the diesel Generator cost.

As the ESS has the battery as a backup so the consumption per unit of power delivered is further reduced in case of 50 percent loading or 70 percent loading of the ESS whereas in the Diesel Generators the cost doesn’t impact in case the load is reduced as the diesel consumption doesn’t vary much in case of reduction of load.

  1. ESS has a longer lifespan

The Diesel Generator has a life of 10 years, after which the maintenance cost becomes very high compared to ESS, which has 50 years of lifespan, and the battery can last from 7 to 10 years of life which is a huge saving in terms of running cost.

  1. ESS is easier and cheaper to maintain

The Diesel Generators have moving parts, and to auto start, they need a battery itself, so the DG set’s service is required every 300 hours. Filling of Diesel and maintaining a DG set, we need an attendant, as the maintenance of the ESS is hardly any issue since it has no moving parts compared to the DG set; no attendant is required. 

  1. ESS can run on Solar

If we add a Solar feature to the ESS where the batteries can be charged through solar power, then the cost of the system can be recovered within 2 to 3 years as the cost of power generation becomes very low as the solar panels last up to 25 years, so the running cost is further subsidized.

As the Solar based ESS can be installed in various places where the space for solar panels is there and solar can be properly utilized, and the cost to produce the electricity will be very low, there is no alternative to such a cheap electricity cost. Even this system will be able to run the system on the solar and battery system if the power is available by cutting the power and running on to the battery and solar power to save the cost of electricity even when the power is available on the Grid as the cost of the power will be very cheap compared to the cost of Grid power per unit

Given all these advantages of ESS over DG sets, it can be safely said that ESS is the future of power backup.

About Su-vastika Solar

Su-vastika Solar is a start-up company that provides revolutionary power storage solutions and is driven by technology, enthusiasm, and invention. Su-vastika focuses on meeting the demands of Indian customers by tailoring it to their specific needs. As one of India’s leading solar power generation firms, the company’s world-class products are designed to survive the Indian environment and temperature conditions. 

The technology patents underpin their innovative products make the Su-vastika Heavy Duty UPS truly efficient.

Let us take a look at some of Su-vastika’s technology patents:

  1. Patent 396079 – A System And Method For Providing Backup To A Consumer-Friendly Lift/Elevator.

This is based on the 3 Phase storage solutions designed specifically for lifts and escalators. Lifts and escalators use a decade-old technology known as ARD, which stops the lift with a loud bang and can only assist the lift in opening the gate at the nearest floor. This technology has a very fast switchover time, and no lift is notified of a power outage. Even if the lifts or escalators are not in use, they continue to function normally.

  1. Patent 399112 – An IoT-Based System And Method For Multiple Battery Selection.

The server has the charging profile of all types of batteries in the IoT-based system. Any new battery charge profile provided by the battery manufacturer can be added and programmed via IoT into the microprocessor of the EV charger, solar charge controller, Inverter and UPS, and so on.

  1. Patent 403781 – An IoT-Based System To Perform Multiple Tests With Adjustable Test Sequence And Test Limits As Well As To Calibrate The Testing Device Periodically.

This patent covers the testing of transformers used in various applications, such as isolation transformers for solar systems, inverter/ UPS transformers, online UPS, stabilizer transformers, electric vehicle chargers with isolation transformers, and so on. All of these single-phase or three-phase transformers have testing parameters that must be met before they can be used in the manufacturing process.

Su-vastika has created a large number of parameters that will be tested using Power Analyzers and other testing equipment. It is tested and analyzed online by uploading the data to the server, it is tested and analyzed online. The testing parameters can be installed via the server and changed based on the requirements of the various transformer parameters.

  1. Patent 403377 – Hand Held Test/ Comparison Device For Comparing

BMS protects against overcharging, overcurrent, overvoltage, under-temperature, leak current, and discharging below the threshold limit to avoid damage. BMS also aids in the management of energy and temperature.

This new IoT-based BMS technology innovation can be used to test both active and passive BMS technology.

No surprise, every Su-vastika product performs admirably in even the most extreme conditions. Su-vastika’s success is due to its commitment to innovation at every stage, which allows them to efficiently employ solar power to provide backup solutions in Delhi NCR like no other power company in India.
