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