BESS diagnostics for holistic lifecycle management

In this pv magazine webinar, we will hear about what needs to be considered to ensure safer and longer-lived battery energy storage systems (BESS), as well as learn how monitoring can help in anomaly detection and improved utilization.

As the relevance of BESS continues to grow, the need to better understand operational risks and manage performance is paramount. However, while solar assets are monitored around the clock, operation and maintenance of batteries is still at an early stage.

Since battery management systems provide limited support in reducing downtime and preventing premature degradation, independent battery monitoring is touted as the missing piece of the puzzle towards simplified ownership, improved performance, and increased profitability.

Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn how BESS monitoring can help in anomaly detection and improved utilization. Claudius Jehle, founder and CEO of volytica diagnostics GmbH, will explain BESS stress factors and causes of failure, as well as the importance of evaluation of battery field data using real life examples.

The attendees will also get insights into what needs to be considered before and after commissioning of the BESS. Arthur Claire, Head of Technology at Sinovoltaics, will provide an overview of quality defects found during Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and the importance of visual inspection and functional tests.

Vincenzo Putignano, head of global O&M BESS at Enel Green Power, will also be joining to discuss the challenges of managing a growing BESS fleet, as the Italian renewable energy corporation looks to grow its battery fleet to more than 3 GW by 2024.

pv magazine Webinar content:
• Challenges of BESS fleet management
• Quality defects found during FAT
• BESS stress factors and causes of failure explained
• Battery diagnostics, real-life examples

We encourage you to take part in the discussion and ask questions, which can be submitted beforehand or through a chat window during the webinar. pv magazine global editor Marija Maisch will be the moderator of this webinar.

Registration for this pv magazine Webinar is free of charge.


Vincenzo Putignano | Head of O&M BESS at global level, Enel Green Power

Vincenzo is currently leading the O&M BESS unit in Enel at global level. After gaining O&M experience in some thermal power plants (coal and gas fired) of the Italian fleet and starting up the Remote Predictive Diagnostic Center, Vincenzo is supporting together with the team the great growth of this new technology in Enel (more than 3 GW in operation by 2024).

Arthur Claire | Head of Technology, Sinovoltaics

As Head of Technology for Sinovoltaics, Arthur supports IPPs and EPCs to deploy high-quality and reliable solar modules and energy storage systems through traceability and inspection services. His strong understanding of the different technologies and market players relevant to the industry allows him to provide a detailed and thorough analysis of those accelerating industries.

Claudius Jehle | CEO & Founder, volytica diagnostics

Claudius Jehle is founder and CEO of volytica diagnostics GmbH, a company focused on independent battery diagnostics. After studying Mechanical Engineering and System Identification at TU Munich and TU Delft until 2012, he was leading the research group Energy Storage Diagnostics and Telematics at the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation & Infrastructure Systems IVI, Dresden. Besides, he gives lectures on Battery Basics and Battery Degradation and writes knowledge-based articles on the global topic of batteries.
