About This Book
The premier reference on flow battery technology for large-scale, high-performance, and sustainable energy storage
From basics to commercial applications, Flow Batteries covers the main aspects and recent developments of (Redox) Flow Batteries, from the electrochemical fundamentals and the materials used to their characterization and technical application. Edited by a team of leading experts, including the "founding mother of vanadium flow battery technology" Maria Skyllas-Kazacos, the full scope of this revolutionary technology is detailed, including chemistries other than vanadium and organic flow batteries. Other key topics covered in Flow Batteries include:
- Flow battery computational modeling and simulation, including quantum mechanical considerations, cell, stack, and system modeling, techno-economics, and grid behavior
- A comparison of the standard vanadium flow battery variant with new and emerging flow batteries using different chemistries and how they will change the field
- Commercially available flow batteries from different manufacturers, their technology, and application ranges
- The pivotal role of flow batteries in overcoming the global energy crisis
Flow Batteries is an invaluable resource for researchers and engineers in academia and industry who want to understand and work with this exciting new technology and explore the full range of its current and future applications.
