The goal is to configure, start and evaluate simulations via the GUI. Consequently, all interfaces must be developed or modified, the operator panel must be designed and all needed testing and error-handling routines must be implemented.

Note: This is an offer suitable for a bachelor, master or diploma thesis or studentic internships.

Design and operation of liquid metal batteries as large-scale storage option (Id 256)

Student practical training / Bachelor theses / Master theses / Diploma theses / Compulsory internship / Volunteer internship

Foto: Study of a liquid metal battery module ©Copyright: Dr. Michael Nimtz, ©Michael NimtzIn contrast to conventional batteries, Liquid Metal Batteries feature all liquid anodes (alkaline or alkaline earth metal), cathodes (transition metal or metal) and electrolytes (molten salts) at a temperature between 400 °C and 600 °C. For the operation of liquid metal batteries as large-scale storage option (frequency control and other applications), the design of the storage system and operation strategies (including a battery management system) need to be implemented and tested using exemplary load curves.
Starting point is an existing model of a battery system in Python.
