Revealing the Nanoscale Secrets of Batteries

A Stanford University-led team recently published research detailing how particles charge and discharge at the nanoscale, giving new insight into the fundamental functioning of batteries and opening doors for the development of better rechargeables. This new insight into the electrochemical action that powers Li-ion batteries provides powerful knowledge into the building blocks of batteries. “It …

Network Rail begins on-track trials of first battery-powered train in UK

Network Rail has started trials of its first battery-powered train on a test track in Derby, UK, after completing the retrofitting of the unit. The on-track trials will culminate into a series of high-speed tests at the Rail Innovation and Development Centre (RIDC) in Nottinghamshire at the end of the year. The project was co-funded …

Lithium insertion/extraction kinetics in LiFePO4

The electric vehicle appears to be the new frontiers in lithium batteries. Distinctly different from mass produced microelectronics, it requires higher energy density as well as improved power performance requirements. Especially, charge/discharge rates during startup from standstill, deceleration, emergency charging, etc. provide unique challenges. To this end, new chemistries and new material with morphologies like …

Degradation of LFP-based Battery System used for Primary Frequency Regulation

Lithium-ion batteries have developed into a popular energy storage choice for a wide range of applications because of their superior characteristics in comparison to other energy storage technologies. Besides modelling the performance behaviour of lithium-ion batteries, it has become of huge interest to accurately estimate their degradation because of both economic and technical considerations. The …

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 …
