Y.CUBE

PLUG-AND-PLAY

Y.Cube is a fully-integrated plug-and-play energy storage solution for smaller-scale applications. Its modular design approach enables system sizes from 200 kW to 10 MW for longer-duration storage systems, scaling up to 20 MW for shorter-duration. Every component has been specifically selected to deliver optimal system performance and minimize operating costs. Watch our -> Y.Cube Video

BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

PLUG & PLAY. ALL IN ONE.
The Y.Cube is a ready-to-install storage system, with all components inside a single enclosure. This off-the-shelf solution comprises batteries, inverter, HVAC and auxiliary components, all tested and pre-assembled by Younicos experts, and all seamlessly operated by the smartest software on the market.
MODULAR AND SCALABLE
Thanks to its modular design, the Y.Cube is easily configurable for different system sizes. A single Y.Cube is available as a 250 kVA or 500 kVA module, or several enclosures can be clustered to build multi-megawatt systems. Thus Y.Cube can grow with your needs!
CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS
Younicos experts work with you to determine the best size and configuration for your system based on the applications you require. We will also help you select the most suitable battery technology and manufacturer based on our experience from more than 40,000 test cycles at our battery labs.
POWERED BY Y.Q
Y.Q operates all system components safely, fast and efficiently to perform all types of storage applications while ensuring a long asset lifetime. In fact, we have received up to 20-year performance warranties from leading battery manufacturers on the strength of Y.Q.
COST EFFICIENCY
The Y.Cube combines the highest performance with cost efficiency. The compact enclosures can easily be installed with a forklift instead of an on-site crane and shows less parasitic losses and slower battery degradation due to its superior thermal management.

FEATURES & COMPONENTS

 

The Y.Cube is an all-in-one system within a single enclosure that houses the Y.Converter units, selected DC battery block and HVAC and auxiliary components, with operation and performance managed by Younicos controls. All components are tailor-made with bidirectional fast-response storage applications in mind.

.

Y.CONVERTER 250

 

The bidirectional Y.Converter upgrades existing power conversion technology with embedded Younicos controls, delivering the highest level of reliability for island and continental grids. Rather than connecting a high quantity of DC racks behind a single large PCS, the Y.Cube links a smaller number of racks in parallel behind each 250 kVA PCS. The greater degree of distribution minimizes usable battery capacity losses and mitigates potential fault current risk.

Y.Q SOFTWARE PLATFORM  

 

Younicos controls are directly embedded in the Y.Converter. Deploying real-time responses within 35 milliseconds, it supports simultaneous performance of multiple modes. Settings and modes can be configured remotely via a secure web-based user interface.

BATTERY ENCLOSURE AND BLOCK

 

Its space-saving and modular design allows for easy shipping and installation and multiple battery technologies to be used. Thanks to extensive battery testing we can recommend the most suitable battery technology and manufacturer for every power/energy ratio.

THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

 

The Y.Cube manages battery rack cooling within more consistent limits than is typical for a conventional 40 ft container, resulting in fewer parasitic losses and slower battery degradation, while also maintaining PCS hardware within optimal operating conditions.

FIRE SUPPRESSION

 

The fire suppression tank is filled with an agent gas, fire and smoke detection units, dispersal nozzles, and a gas actuator. Additionally, the modular enclosures provide increased segmentation of the system with a fire-rated barrier.
