Modeling of Vanadium Redox Battery by Field Analysis and Neural Network Approach
The vanadium redox flow battery is well-suited for renewable energy applications. This paper studies VRB use within a microgrid system from a practical perspective. A reduced order circuit model of the VRB was introduced. Experimental field data are collected to estimate the key parameters of the VRB system. Methods of predicting major parasitic losses are proposed. Loss models include the circulation pumps and the HVAC system that regulates the environment of the VRB enclosure. The HVAC system can draw a significant amount of the VRB power considerably impacting its overall efficiency, but this is usually ignored by other theoretical models.
