Description

  The present embodiment relates to a power storage device maintenance system and a power storage device maintenance method for replacing a battery module of a power storage device.

  In addition to power generation facilities that use renewable energy such as sunlight and wind power that do not emit greenhouse gases, the introduction of power storage devices for the purpose of adjusting the supply and demand of power is being promoted. The power storage device is desirably used by appropriately combining storage batteries having different characteristics such as a lead battery, a nickel metal hydride battery, and a lithium ion battery so that optimum characteristics can be obtained in accordance with usage patterns of consumers. Since the storage battery deteriorates depending on the use situation and the surrounding environment, and the capacity that can be stored decreases, it is necessary to replace the battery module of the storage device. For module replacement, it is desired to use a reusable product (used product) that is more economical than the same new product as the module being used.

  For example, a storage battery reuse system includes a mechanism for predicting the life of a storage battery and notifying the replacement time, and a recycling system including a replacement service based on the information. Even if the reusable products are of the same type, the electrical characteristics differ depending on the past use conditions. Therefore, for example, there is a method of managing by classifying from electrical characteristic information and usage history information in order to facilitate reuse.

In the prior art, a battery module having a predetermined performance compensated as a battery module can be obtained from a battery module supplier, but operation in combination with a non-replaceable battery module in a power storage device of a corresponding consumer is considered. There is no problem.

  In addition, among reusable products, it is more economical to divert the battery module as it is than a reconstructed product in units of battery cells, but a battery module with specified performance is secured because it depends on past usage conditions. There is also a problem that it is difficult.

  The present invention has been made to solve the above-described problem, and provides a power storage device maintenance system and a power storage device maintenance method capable of efficiently replacing a battery module according to a demand of a consumer. It is.

  According to the embodiment, the power storage device maintenance system includes characteristics information of a power storage device including at least one replaceable first battery module and one or more second battery modules that can be supplied to the power storage device. And a server system including a server that holds The power storage device includes a receiving unit, an input unit, and a determining unit. The receiving means receives characteristic information of the second battery module from the server system through a communication network. The input means replaces the second battery with a replacement battery module for replacement with at least one of the first battery modules to be replaced based on an operation of the owner of the power storage device. Input from within the module. The calculating means uses the characteristic information of the replacement battery module and the characteristic information of the non-replaceable battery module in the first battery module, and uses the replacement battery module and the non-replaceable battery module. Calculate the operation forecast that combines the battery modules. The determination means determines suitability of the replacement battery module based on the operation prediction.

For example, the operation prediction unit 020 simulates (calculates) an operation prediction when a battery module that is not subject to replacement and a reserved battery module are used in combination as shown in the charge / discharge plan information 026. The charge / discharge history information 025 is used to calculate the characteristics of the battery module 013 at the scheduled replacement time of the battery module 103 (including not only the present but also the future).

  The conformity determination unit 021 executes a selection determination function that performs conformity determination based on the calculation result of the operation prediction using the conformance condition information 027. For example, the conformity determination unit 021 performs the conformity determination of the reserved battery module by comparing the calculation result of the operation prediction with the conformity condition information 027. For example, the suitability determination unit 021 determines whether the estimated remaining life value of the reserved battery module obtained as the calculation result of the operation prediction exceeds the remaining life value included in the matching condition information 027 or the remaining battery value included in the reserved battery module information 022. Compliance determination is performed by comparing whether the amount exceeds the remaining amount included in the compliance condition information 027. It is to be noted that the conformity determination unit 021 determines whether or not the operation prediction when the battery module that is not subject to replacement and the reserved battery module is operated in combination with the charge / discharge plan information 026 without using the conformance condition information 027. Based on the above, the suitability determination of the reserved battery module may be performed.
