Battery activities in Lithium Balance

The heart of any electric vehicle is a lithium-ion battery pack. The whole battery pack is managed in real time by a Battery Management System (BMS) – an electronic system that controls the battery pack allowing safe and reliable operation. The BMS provides overall management of the battery pack including over and under voltage protection, …

Battery research at SDU and IISc, Bangalore, India: Li-ion microbatteries

Li-ion microbatteries may fill a nieche of applications in compact devices, if they can be manufactured on-location in circuits, or in packages with compact dimensions, and with long life expectancies. The methods of fabrications involve depositions of thin films (electrodes and electrolytes), contacting, and packaging. So far, the development of suitable sputter targets for deposition …

Life time predictions of the lithium ion batteries in the Virtual Power Plant

Future large wind power plants (WPP) will be intended to function like conventional power plants seen from the transmission system point of view, by complying with grid codes and providing ancillary services. This can be possible by integration of battery energy storage systems (BESS) into the so called Virtual Power Plants (VPP). Relatively young storage …

Fundamental considerations on energy density, power density and safety of batteries

The presentation will give a brief analysis of the possibilities that the periodic table give us for construction of batteries with high energy densities. As power densities are as important as energy densities, the importance of the characters of electrolyte and electrodes (liquid, solid, porosity, structure), and of the nature of the electrode reactants (solid, …
