Questions related to Energy Storage
I am looking for examples of using home energy storage to reduce energy peaks on a daily basis in the case of PV. There is a need to use many home energy storage (several hundred thousand in Poland) to cut PV energy peaks.
I searched through many types of literature and planned something based on my investigation.
I plan to predict the IV characteristic curve based on experimental data. Since the curve is usually not linear, I plan to use the SVM algorithm for it.
I plan to predict the power output of fuel cell systems/battery technology as well. Since a lot of factors influence the output power, I am considering using the ANN algorithm to predict the power output with at least 30 epochs.
My ultimate objective is to create a digital twin of a fuel cell system. I was wondering if the algorithms I was planning to use would make sense given the sort of experimental data I would have. Will you also recommend another machine learning algorithm that you believe is more feasible?

In a battery energy storage system, if we know the number of cycles i.e. charging and discharging how do we calculate the degradation from this.
Hello everyone, I am looking for a good MPC quadratic optimization mathematical model to optimize a cost function or performance index, for a battery energy storage state space model. Would anybody suggest a good research paper or post a formulation that contains a good mathematical model for quadratic optimization? An objective function with viable constraints, which can be possible to implement in function solvers such as quadprog or cplex would be ideal. Thank you
For a certain storage device, if round-trip efficiency equals 80%, what are charge efficiency and discharge efficiency?
For a study about an energy storage system for an offshore platform, we need a load profile or a power consumption curve of the platform (i.e. required power or power consumption vs time). I found something useful but it is data a land-based oil rig and the data is for 3 days which makes the figure difficult to extract the data (in the attachment).
Many thanks in advance.
why discharge time is obviously shorter than the charge time for most of the supercapacitors? What is the phenomenon behind this?
I am trying to link a composite model which is a control model for Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to a PWM Converter/1 DC-Connection as shown in the attachment.
Unfortunately, this simplistic vision of RF and microwave circuit design often becomes blurred when test results are obtained that differ drastically from the beautiful simulation results. The reasons for this disparity may normally be traced to one of the following:
"The ratio of the transverse dimensions of transmission lines to wave length are nonnegligible thus, additional unwanted energy storage modes become available."
I read this above paragraph in a textbook, and didn't quite understand the sentence given in bold.
As of how does the above condition result in unwanted energy storage modes.
Thank you in advance

I am looking for a scientific explanation for the mass balancing equation (eq. 1) used in supercapacitors.
1. How the mass balancing could be decided before preparing the electrodes?
2. In which scenario is it required to use the mass balancing and why?
The mass balancing equation:
m+/m- =(C-×∆V-)/(C+×∆V+) (eq. 1)
where m+ and m− is the mass of active material in positive and negative electrodes, C+ and C−is the specific capacitance of the positive and negative electrodes, ΔV+ and ΔV−is the potential window of the positive and negative electrodes.

This is basically just so I can get a general feel of how it is going to work. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
I want to conduct a quantitative techno-economic comparison of different energy storage technologies, how to obtain their up-to-date cost parameters, such as the investment cost and O&M cost of batteries, hydraulic pump and turbine, fuel cells...？
Power Network Expansion Planning is the problem of deciding the new transmission lines that should be added to an existing transmission network in order to satisfy system objectives efficiently. It is one of the main strategic decisions in power systems and has a deep, long-lasting impact on the operation of the system.

I'm looking to buy some carbon fiber cloth to use as substrate for binder-free, standalone S cathodes. Previously I used activated carbon cloth manufactured by Kynol. However, the fibers of their carbon cloth are too thick and the pores are almost all unorganized micropores.
My PI told me he recently read some commercialized CNT/graphene organized micro/meso-porous carbon cloth. I have not found it but would really appreciate if anyone can provide such vendors and/or more details. Thank you.
The energy storage can be done with different technologies, e.g. batteries, concrete towers, pump hydro systems, flywheel, etc. How long these technologies can hold the energy stored, it is hours, days, weeks, months?
For example, once the energy is charged in the batteries, this gets fully charged, if we leave the batteries fully charged how long will the batteries stay charged, and what are the losses associated with this?
Similarly for the other energy storage technologies, how long this energy storage tile would be?
There are some methods to estimate these characteristics or recommended sources of information?

In the electrochemical energy storage field, more precicely the battery field, what would be the best use for "insertion" and "intercalation"? either speaking about the materials themselves or the actual process. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
From a technical point of view, although lithium electric energy storage is in the limelight at present, it may be impacted by more emerging energy storage routes due to its lack of safety. What kind of route is the most consistent with the development of national energy storage? There is no doubt that safety is the primary consideration. VRFB without explosion and fire hazard is expected to become the preferred technology for large-scale energy storage.VRFB is a kind of battery with the same distinct advantages and disadvantages. It is not difficult to find through detailed comparison that VRFB is the most suitable for energy storage equipment, and it is not too much to say that it is born for energy storage. In terms of market share, the market penetration rate of VRFB is less than 1%. However, in the next few years, VRFB is expected to usher in the outbreak, and the market optimism is expected to reach 20% by 2025, and it will reach 30% in 2030.
At present, vanadium redox flow batteries are mainly applied to large-scale energy storage and provide a solution for power smoothing of solar renewable energy. With the proposal of the dual carbon goal, in order to expand its application fields, smart grid, zero-carbon community and other applications have emerged. I would like to ask how vanadium liquid flow battery is applied in the field of new energy vehicles and whether there are any application cases at present.
Hi everybody, to give a little bit of context, I'm looking into the use of hydrogen for long term energy storage.
I'm reading a lot about using hydrogen turbines for re-generation of electricity. From my understanding fuel cells have a way better efficiency than hydrogen turbines. (fuel cell = ~60-70% efficiency vs. hydrogen turbine = ~30-40% efficiency)
Now what I can think of why using hydrogen turbines instead of fuel cells is because you can reach a higher temperature for CHP. But that's just a guess and I couldn't find a really good explanation yet.
Would be happy if anyone can recommend a good paper or anything which explains why using a hydrogen turbine instead a fuel cell.
I'm modelling my own grid in matpower to calculate the optimal power flow (opf). The thing is my grid has WT, PV & storage system in them along with the conventional generators.Does anyone know how to include the Energy Storage System in the code? And how can I include the charging and the discharging?
I am fabricating activated carbon from biowaste like peanut shell for supercapacitor applications. Literature shows that all calcination are doing under inert atmosphere and not normal calcination. We dont have facility to do calcination under inert atmosphere. Will it affects the result if I go for calcination without providing inert atmosphere
The concrete contains phase change material and thermal couples inserted in the concrete at different thicknesses. The objective of the study is to quantify how much energy the samples can store.
I am using the equations developed by M. Pomerantz, B. Pon, H. Akbari, and S.C. Chang "The Effect of Pavements' Temperatures on Air Temperatures in Large Cities" April 2000
Which is similar to Energy storage (W/m2) = radiation + convection - conduction.
I am trying to implement the thermodynamic model of ejector assisted compressed air energy storage (CAES) and I need thermodynamic properties of Therminol 66 thermal oil. In the reference paper, I am following, the author utilized Refprop 9.1, but I can seems to find the the Fluid "therminol 66" in the Refprop fluid library. Does it have any other name in the Refprop library?. If anyone has any idea please guide.
Hi everyone. I am looking for a high temperature MPCM.
More specifically, I need the thermo physical properties of a microencapsulated phase change material with the melting temperature between 580K to 640K.
Is there any commercial MPCM with the mentioned melting temperature? Or any reliable correlation to calculate the properties of the MPCM?
i work with a microgrid that contains a battery and a supercapacitor, i want to estimate the SOC of the battery ( modeled by a DC voltage source with an internal resistance ) according to the Coulomb counting method and therefore i need to select the initial SOC of my battery.\
i take the dimension of my battery from a paper where they say that the rated voltage is 48 V and they took the 28 V (as operational or nominal voltage), so since we use it in 28 V and its rated voltage is 48 V can we say that we use it not fully charged at the initial state ?
and how can i fix for ex my initial SOC at a specified value (50,70%..)
thank you in advance
In general if we want to increase the specific capacitance or charge storage capacity in electrochemical energy storage devices we should have the pore size of the electrode material is slightly higher then the solvated ion size of the electrolyte for easily charging and discharging. If we have the pore size less then the solvated ions of the electrolytes. Can we enhance the parameter if yes How?
In the transportation sector (Electric vehicles), Lithium ion batteries particularly LFP and NMC are the most utilized battery packs today! What are the other expected options within Lithium-ion or other options could be possibly used in the future?
In particular, areas/issues that have potential to be of national/international importance.
How can I perform charge-discharge measurements on a supercapacitor material in a standard 3 electrode set-up using the Chronocoulometry technique. I am using CHI604D workstation, if that helps. I have come across one article (see link below) that uses this technique for charge-discharge measurements, but the authors have not explained the details of the same.
According to literature I have come across, they have stated that for ferroelectric materials, a high Pr value is deemed useful but for energy storage (ferro-capacitors) Pr value should be less. Then what are the other applications where a ferro-material with high Pr can be used.
Kindly help. It's urgent

I am trying to model a DAB converter and I need to observe the power transfeered to the load side on varying the phase shift between two bridges, hence I couldnt take a constant load e.g resistance.
So i am planning to add a energy storage element e.g battery or something to notice in the change in out voltage and then power delivered.

Biochar (solid product with more than 60% carbon as per IBI) has been extensively studied for its production, characterization, and applications. In spite of offering numerous benefits in diverse fields (energy generation, soil, agriculture, water treatment, wildfires, energy storage, and so on), biochar producers are finding it difficult to sustain. Answer to this question may significantly depend on geographical context, so please mention the context while sharing your valuable thoughts. Thank you.
This is a isothermal process , So I need to If the compression ratio of a reciprocal compressor is 4.5, how many compressors are

As the penetration of grid-connected solar energy increases, is it technically possible to replace most of the conventional power generations including coal, gas and natural gas in modern power grid? Is there any critical technical challenges we need to overcome? There are various researches ongoing such as virtual inertial (VI)-based inverter, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and hybrid energy storage system (ESS) to address voltage/frequency instability, IV & PV non-lineality and solar energy non-availability during night time respectively.
Plus, there are many technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), smart grid, blockchain and other advanced terminologies available for solar energy. From these perspectives, will the solar energy eventually replaces conventional power generation or it will be limited as a supplementary energy source for existing power system which is ideal for remote and vast area?
Welcome to exchange your valuable perspectives on the future of solar energy.
I work on the energy storage by pumped storage energy transfer stations and I found this equation E (t) = P (t) * t * PF. with E (t) and the energy produced and P (t) and the installed power and t: the operating time of the plant. my question is how calculated PF . AND can we say that PF is the capacity factor of the power plant (pump-turbine) or no . and how is it calculated?
I'm studying about manufacturing of Advanced Li-Ion batteries . I'd like have some information about technologies and methods for the production of the battery and its components (Li-Ion in spacial).
For this purpose, I need more and most up-to-date references.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
I am working on hydraulic energy storage using pumped-storage turbine energy transfer stations. and I want to calculate friction energy losses using Darcy equation .
While investigating the state of the art in this field, I kept having this question running in my mind, when authors report photocatalytic performance of water splitting systems. For hydrogen to become a viable pathways for tomorrow's energy management, the standards measurements should include neutral pH and mineralized water. Or can deionization and (e.g.) alkanization be part of a sustainable cycle?
Is power-to-gas a possible solution to this issue? Storing renewable energy in the form of H2 and CH4 and using them as fuels can increase the penetration of renewable energy in the transportation sector?
I am working on hydraulic energy storage using pumped-storage turbine energy transfer stations. and I want to calculate friction energy losses as a function of D1, D2 the diameters of the pipes and L1, L2 the lengths of the pipes to reservoirs 1 and 2 in k(m), and
Roughness coefficient of the materials used for the pipes, Q tank outlet flow rate
I want to share some experience about SMES and also advice from who are working with related projects. I have a simulink model of simple grid connected battery storage system , now i want to replace SMES with battery to find the effects on grid parameters.
I have a grid connected 5KW system with 16 panels, with individual panel rating ranging from 36-40 V at 8 A connectedin series give approximately 500-600 V at 8 A. In times of power outage, the Inverter usually supplies power to the load. In absence of a battery unit how do we limit the excess power produced. We thought of using a buck converter to minimize production in such power outage scenarios, but using a buck converter for close to 2KW or 3KW is practically impossible and not cost effective.
I did think of using a voltage reference based power limit control, but the inverter's MPPT is not taking the reference votlage. The inverter in question is a commercial one made by Growatt solutions with an inbuilt MPPT control.
I'm a graduate student at McMaster University. Now, I'm doing a system optimization project. I'm interested in optimizing the energy storage system applied to Wolfe Island Windfarm. I'd like to make sure where I can obtain the exact power generated by the wind farm in each hour during the whole year. Also, I need the hourly power prediction (power commitment) data for the next hour.
Either I am not looking the right way, or there's a lack of adequate research.
I find no shortage of studies conducted on the effect of calendar aging in various temperatures on LFP based Lithium cells. There's thorough material for the effect of high/low rates of charge/discharge on cycle life as well as calendar life as well.
However, save one, or two conference papers, I find comparative comprehensive study on the effect of high/low temperatures charge/discharge on the cycle life of LiFePo4 cell.
Have you come across any such research? Are you currently working on something like this? Have you found the same lack of information? Do you have any extrapolations on what we might expect?
Compressed-air energy storage (CAES) is a way to store energy generated at one time for use at another time using compressed air. At utility scale, energy generated during periods of low energy demand (off-peak) can be released to meet higher-demand (peak load) periods. This is especially important in an age where intermittent renewable-energy sources such as wind and solar power are becoming more prominent energy sources. CAES systems can have a vital impact in making sure that the electricity demands can be met at peak hours. Small-scale systems have long been used in such applications as propulsion of mine locomotives. Large-scale applications must conserve the heat energy associated with compressing air; dissipating heat lowers the energy efficiency of the storage system.
Porous media is not absorbing heat by radiation and density remain constant of overall control volume.
We are trying to formulate flow through "solar chimney with porous media as energy storage ".
In fluent we used :
1) k epsilon model
2) DO model for radiation
3) Pressure based model
4) Porous media
For elaborate details of problem refer document attached below .
The solar still equipped with energy storage can work after sunshine hours due to the effect of energy stored in the system.
I want to calculate the instantaneous energy and exergy efficiency after sunshine hours but I am unable to do that as solar radiation is zero after around 6 pm.
I am confused, how to calculate the efficiency of solar still during night hours., As radiation is zero, the efficiency turning undefined because of ZERO in the denominator in the formula.
I have gone through several books and articles, but I am unable to find the exact solution for my query. But there are some articles, calculated and plotted the hourly energy/exergy efficiency after sunshine hours.
It would be of immense help to me if I get a solution... Also, it is very helpful for me in understanding the other related topics towards my research.
Thanks in advance...
Looking forward to hearing from the solar still research family...
Seasonal factors effect PV generation and thus result less storage availability by PV-battery storage systems, enforcing grid utilisation. Can we put hydrogen energy storage replacing battery storage during low PV generation months ? How can we size the hydrogen based system replacing a PV ?
