Abstract [en]

Results have shown that flow batteries may be a solution in the future as an effective and environmental friendly method to an energy storage system (ESS). The technology is reliable and has a high efficiency that comes with low energy losses and a long lifetime. The range of possible fields is suitable for cutting energy peaks in the power grid, by always have a ready and available energy storage that balances the production. By comparing the advantages of flow batteries with conventional batteries it is mainly the fact that they can conserve energy for a long time without being self-discharged thanks to that the storage capacity is in principle endless and limited by the size of the electrolytes tanks that makes them a great energy storage system. The batteries won’t take any damage or decrease in performance when charging or discharging it or if you exhausts it to 100 % and leave it discharged for a long time. The only disadvantages with flow batteries are that they are built upon an advanced design and are built of components made of expensive materials.

The main objective of this thesis is to develop an experimental basis for assessing a small pilot module of a flow battery with respect to how different concentrations of salts, flow rates and different currents/voltages affect the performance of the battery. We start by performing the experiment with a polymeric ion exchange membrane and see what values and the advantages and disadvantages it entails.
