The redox flow battery might be a key component in the future power grids: It can be scaled as desired, recycled, and it ensures stable energy storage. Moreover, no scarce resources are needed for its production. So far, however, adaptation of the batteries to each application scenario has been required. In future, this will be accomplished by a novel battery management system developed by researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). 

 

The battery management system for decentralized monitoring and control of redox flow batteries will be presented by KIT at the Hannover Messe, at the leading trade show “Energy” in hall 27, stand K51, from April 23 – 27.
