Simulation Model Tuned for Designing Battery Storage Systems

Simulation Model Tuned for Designing Battery Storage Systems

A new development environment makes it possible to simulate and test batteries, supercapacitors, and other energy-storage devices according to their design and cooling systems. The Toolbox Speichersysteme, or Energy Storage Toolbox, was jointly developed by dSPACE , a company based in Paderborn, Germany, that makes tools for developing electric control units (ECUs), and the Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives (ISEA) of RWTH Aachen University in Germany. Merging a graphical user interface from dSPACE and a simulation model from RWTH Aachen University, the development tool provides engineers with a wide range of configuration options. In the case of lithium-ion batteries, for example, these options include battery technology and shape, the number and arrangement of storage cells, wiring topologies, and cooling systems, among others.
