Batteries and Other Energy Storage Devices
About this Project
There is increasing interest in energy storage devices. Devices like batteries are used in hybrid vehicle. There is also interest in using batteries and devices like ultra capacitors with windmill to mitigate the effect of power fluctuations. The power losses, and subsequently the overall efficiency, of practical energy storage devices are highly nonlinear and greatly depend on the rate of charging. In order to maximize efficiency, advance energy systems would utilise heterogeneous arrays of storage devices consisting of high energy and high power devices. This project will develop the models that are crucial for such energy systems
