The Importance of Circuit Protection in BESS Design
The Importance of Circuit Protection in BESS Design
Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are becoming increasingly popular in the renewable energy industry, as they allow for the storage of excess energy generated by solar and wind power systems. One important component of a BESS is the fuse, which is vital to protect the system from overcurrent and short circuit conditions.
Fuseco offers a wide range of fuses specifically designed for use in BESS. These include Littelfuse and SIBA BESS fuses, which are known for their high-quality and reliability. These fuses are designed to meet the specific needs of BESS and can handle the high current and voltage levels that are present in these systems.
One of the main advantages of using fuses in a BESS is that they provide a quick and effective way to protect your BESS investment from overcurrent. This is important because these conditions can cause damage to the system and result in costly downtime. BESS fuses also provide a simple and cost-effective way to protect the system, as they do not require any additional components or complex wiring.
Another advantage of fuses in BESS is that they can be easily replaced if they are damaged or worn out. This helps to minimise downtime and ensures that the system is always operating at its best.
|Low watt loss||Prevents energy loss, more efficient and minimises wasted power from components.|
|Compact size||Facilitates design of smaller or more compact high energy density systems.|
|Visual indication is standard||Easily detectable in the event of a fault.|
|High dc voltage rating to 1500 V dc||Protection for highest rated dc battery energy storage systems in the market.|
|Dc breaking capacity up to 250 kA at 1500 V dc||Facilitates design of long duration battery energy storage systems.|
|Three terminations||Allows more versatility with mounting configurations.|
|Low minimum breaking capacity||Offers protection for lower levels of fault current.|
If you're looking for a reliable and high-quality fuse for your BESS, contact Fuseco to discuss your requirements. They can help you find the perfect fuse for your specific application and ensure that your BESS is protected and operating at its best.

A BESS fuse is as fuse that has been specifically designed for Energy Storage/DC applications. They are available in either aBat or gBat designations.
BESS fuses are compact in size, have a high DC voltage rating, a high DC breaking capacity and a low Watts loss rating – making them the most efficient option for Energy Storage protection.
BESS fuses are available from 80A up to 1400A.
BESS fuses are available up to 2000 VDC.
BESS fuses have versatile mounting arrangements, with the option of Flush End, Bolted Blade or DIN Blade terminations.
BESS fuses are often seen in Energy Storage, Photovoltaic Converters, DC common Bus systems, Regenerative drives and rectifiers.
I called thru at 430pm EST and was put in contact with Sally in Vic! From the moment the call was answered Sally couldn’t do enough to try and help..... then she organised for Sydney to open up at 6am for me to collect the fuses. As a service-based company it was very refreshing to come across someone that went over and above to help us client back into production as quickly as we could!
DIRECTOR - JOHNSON ELECTRICAL SERVICES
Michael, you asked me if I was happy with your service. Let me tell you that Fuseco had quoted and delivered the products via airfreight from Germany before our other suppliers returned our call. Outstanding!
LAWRENCE AND HANSON
I would like to acknowledge the exceptional service provided by one of your employees over the Xmas break. On Christmas day we lost a 22kV underground feed to a very important part of our business and were desperate for some replacement HV fuses. I found your emergency contact details on the web a and immediately called. The person who answered was very helpful and arranged an emergency transport to our site. The next day, we were back up and running! We are a remote operation 1800kms from the nearest city and average service is the norm.

Thanks for ensuring that our order was delivered on time. Again, thank you for going the extra 8,000 km!
LOGISTICS OFFICER AT GRIDSENSE
I just wanted to let you know what great service your people gave us over the Christmas break and went to great lengths to make sure that we got the right fuses and that they were delivered on time. Dealing with your company a pleasure. Keep up the good work.
I don’t normally do this but I feel compelled to thank you in writing. I have been in the electrical industry for 25 years and without a doubt the most competent and trustworthy supplier I have used over this period of time is Fuseco. This is a demanding industry and how your team keeps performing above expectations is exceptional to me.

I have dealt with Fuseco for the last 6 years for all our fuse requirements and find they provide the highest quality service and on-going support to our business for our day to day operations and for emergency/ heatwave as they arise. During a heatwave event in January 2014, SA Power Networks had critical fuse demands. Fuseco were extremely responsive in expediting stock requirements and organising special air freights to meet our urgent demands. Their customer service is excellent and key KPI’s measured against the contract are always above target.
