Grids 18.10.2016

Grid stabilization using battery power plants

How can a battery storage system be further developed to form a plant for balancing power production? This is the question that the researchers are investigating in the SDL-Batt project. Here they are testing various system services and evaluating them in economic terms, whereby the research is focusing on the operating data, energy balancing and the simulation of different methods. ... more

Storages in grid-connected PV systems

Photovoltaik storages can specifically relieve the grids and reduce the net expansion to a necessary measure. Which use PV storages have, depends on the operating method of the storage and the grid. First results gives the analysis "PV Benefit". .

Decentralised battery storage 12.4.2017

Battery System for owners and the grid

In the project PV-host scientists want to improve decentralized storage battery technically and economically. To this end, they compare solar storage that are suitable for detached houses. They want to find out which operating strategy operates useful with a memory as possible network. The storage will not only meet their own needs of the household, but also reduce feed-in peak. This is to ensure that the network can accommodate a total of more electricity from solar installations. ... more

PEM elektrolysis 30.8.2016

Put stacks through their paces

Stacks with a capacity of one megawatt class have so far not been sufficiently investigated. In this project, scientists are developing a globally unique test center for PEM electrolysers. This stack may soon be studied for up to 1 MW connected load. ... more

Lithium batteries 16.1.2017

Quantum mechanics replaces laboratory experiment

To get a better understanding of Li-Ion batteries, junior researchers are using quantum mechanical methods. The multiscale modelling of batteries, which is based on quantum mechanical principles, is an option to develop electrodes and electrolytes using computer-based simulations. The virtual development of batteries is not only accurate and fast, but also offers other benefits, since the costs are lower than those of laboratory experiments. In this way one single experiment can be sufficient to confirm the computer-based results. ... more

Standardising performance tests

Researchers from Fraunhofer UMSICHT are designing performance tests for battery storage systems. The tests are supposed to enable objective testing and comparison of different types of batteries for standardised and practical applications. Another goal is to apply these test cycles with a real lithium-ion battery and with a lead-gel or a redox flow battery for comparison. .

Magnesium sulfide - an alternative to lithium

Batteries should demonstrate a high energy density, they should be inexpensive and should hold many memory cycles. Scientists develop such batteries in the project MASAK. They pursue a new concept: in contrast to the known magnesium - systems not magnesium cation are used for charge transfer, but sulfide anion. ... more

Redox flow battery 1.8.2016

Liquid storage simplifies network expansion

Scientists of the project SmartPowerFlow integrated a large redox-flow battery into the power grid of a German operator. They wanted to find out to what extent energy storages increase the capacity of the grid and so reduce the cost of grid expansion. ... more

Power-heat systems 12.4.2017

Network storage with hybrid photovoltaic system

Researchers develop new strategies for the operation of hybrid photovoltaic systems in residential buildings and small businesses. For this purpose, the scientists optimize the operation management by simulations and laboratory measurements in the project INE-VES. The optimized operations management will increase the benefit of the system for the power grid, as well as for the owner. ... more

Study Plan-DelyKaD 31.3.2014

Hydrogen fuel production by electrolysis

In a study, scientists are determining the theoretical prerequisites for testing an integrated overall system at an industrially relevant scale. For the “electricity – hydrogen – large-scale storage – usage” system, principles are being developed that are intended to identify as many risks as possible for the implementation. ... more
