Why CellSwitch™ is revolutionary for batteries

Take a closer look at how CellSwitch delivers a simpler battery energy storage system with a longer life and better performance when compared to a conventional system.

Conventional vs. CellSwitch™

In conventional systems, battery performance and longevity is limited by the weakest cell in a string.

Cell-level control solves this.

Relectrify CellSwitch™ technology manages each individual cell or series element, allowing the available energy in every cell to be utilised to its maximum, solving this significant limitation of conventional systems.

A simpler system

This is achieved by replacing the busbars and battery management system (BMS) of a conventional system with circuit boards containing electronic switches that control each individual cell or series element.

Eliminating the inverter

The ability to switch individual cells also means that Relectrify can generate a smooth, grid-compliant alternating current (AC) sine wave directly from the battery pack, eliminating the need for conventional inverters.

This results in a simpler and lower-cost battery storage system.

Minimising variation

Over time, each cell is individually managed to minimise variation as the pack ages.

Maximising utilisation

The result is that Relectrify can maximise the capacity utilisation of the pack and extend the operational life of the battery by 20 to 30%.

Increasing throughput

The additional throughput is able to be delivered simply because Relectrify can extract the energy that is not able to be accessed in a conventional system because conventional systems are limited to the performance of the weakest cell in every string.

Improved safety & reliablity

Cell-level control improves safety and reliability.

Failed or unsafe cells are electronically bypassed from operation, without compromising the availability and performance of the rest of the system. The system can continue to operate avoiding outages and downtime.
