I would appreciate some help on battery simulation on EnergyPlus. I am using a KiBaM, but I am obtaining this fatal error when I run the simulation:

Fatal ** ElectricLoadCenter:Storage:Battery named="KIBAM". Battery discharge current could not be estimated due to iteration limit reached. ...Summary of Errors that led to program termination: ..... Reference severe error count=0 ..... Last severe error=

I cannot figure out what is causing it.

Can someone help me, plase?

Hi ! I have the same problem. I think the issue is related with the Number of Battery Modules in Parallel/Series. If I make some combinations in the number of Battery Modules in Parallel/Series the file run.

"Input Output Reference" refer: The total number of modules in a battery bank is equal to the number of modules in parallel times the number of modules in series. However, for instance, using a total of 6 batteries (3 modules in parallel and 2 in series) the error appear.

Any UnmetHours user can help or give some guidelines?

EnergyPlus version 8.9
