A review of Tesla Solar Li-ion Battery
Tesla was founded in 2003 by a group of engineers who wanted to prove that people didn’t need to compromise to drive electric – that electric vehicles can be better, quicker and more fun to drive than gasoline cars. Today, Tesla builds not only all-electric vehicles but also infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products. Tesla believes the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.
Launched in 2008, the Roadster unveiled Tesla’s cutting-edge battery technology and electric powertrain. From there, Tesla designed the world’s first ever premium all-electric sedan from the ground up – Model S – which has become the best car in its class in every category. Combining safety, performance, and efficiency, Model S has reset the world’s expectations for the car of the 21st century with the longest range of any electric vehicle, over-the-air software updates that make it better over time, and a record 0-60 mph acceleration time of 2.28 seconds as measured by Motor Trend. In 2015, Tesla expanded its product line with Model X, the safest, quickest and most capable sport utility vehicle in history that holds 5-star safety ratings across every category from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Completing CEO Elon Musk’s “Secret Master Plan,” in 2016, Tesla introduced Model 3, a low-priced, high-volume electric vehicle that began production in 2017. Soon after, Tesla unveiled the safest, most comfortable truck ever – Tesla Semi – which is designed to save owners at least $200,000 over a million miles based on fuel costs alone. In 2019, Tesla unveiled Model Y, a mid-size SUV, with seating for up to seven, and Cybertruck, which will have better utility than a traditional truck and more performance than a sports car.
Tesla vehicles are produced at its factory in Fremont, California, and Gigafactory Shanghai. To achieve our goal of having the safest factories in the world, Tesla is taking a proactive approach to safety, requiring production employees to participate in a multi-day training program before ever setting foot on the factory floor. From there, Tesla continues to provide on-the-job training and track performance daily so that improvements can be made quickly. The result is that Tesla’s safety rate continues to improve while production ramps.
To create an entire sustainable energy ecosystem, Tesla also manufactures a unique set of energy solutions, Powerwall, Powerpack and Solar Roof, enabling homeowners, businesses, and utilities to manage renewable energy generation, storage, and consumption. Supporting Tesla’s automotive and energy products is Gigafactory 1 – a facility designed to significantly reduce battery cell costs. By bringing cell production in-house, Tesla manufactures batteries at the volumes required to meet production goals, while creating thousands of jobs.
And this is just the beginning. With Tesla building its most affordable car yet, Tesla continues to make products accessible and affordable to more and more people, ultimately accelerating the advent of clean transport and clean energy production. Electric cars, batteries, and renewable energy generation and storage already exist independently, but when combined, they become even more powerful – that’s the future we want.
Here are the list of batteries produced by Tesla:
The Tesla Powerwall is a wall-mounted battery system for residential or light commercial use. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack provides energy storage for solar self-consumption, load shifting, backup power, or any high-throughput application. Powerwall’s electrical interface is provide by an internal isolated bi-directional DC/DC converter controlling the charge and discharge of the battery for integration with utility-interactive inverters.
Powerwall achieves unprecedented levels of safety in home energy storage. It is a factory assembled, fully-certified until that contains no user serviceable parts. The microprocessor controlled DC/DC converter is electrically isolated from the internal battery and eliminates user access to live terminals during installation or service.
Tesla Powerwall is a fully-integrated AC battery system for residential or light commercial use. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack provides energy storage for solar self-consumption, time-based control, and backup.
Powerwall’s electrical interface provides a simple connection to any home or building. Its revolutionary compact design achieves market-leading energy density and is easy to install, enabling owners to quickly realize the benefits of reliable, clean power.
Tesla has been building integrated battery systems in cars for over 10 years. The same degree of expertise, quality control, and technological innovation has informed our process of developing high-performance energy storage systems. The Powerpack System scales to the space, power and energy requirements of any site from 100 kWh+ to 100 MWh+.
Tesla includes a 10-year warranty at no additional cost. Extensions are also available under certain conditions.
FULLY INTEGRATED SYSTEM
A complete energy storage system including DC batteries, bi-directional inverter, and a Tesla Site Controller with intelligent software. This turnkey system is designed to maximize savings and prolong battery life.
Powerpack Systems have the most advanced battery technology and dispatch optimization software to quickly learn and predict a facility’s energy patterns. Tesla’s proprietary storage
dispatch software can charge and discharge autonomously to maximize customer value.
ENHANCED SYSTEM SAFETY
Powerpack’s battery architecture consists of a low voltage battery with a DC/DC converter for added electrical isolation and safety. It also has an integrated liquid cooling and heating system for thermal safety and enhanced performance and reliability.
