About the Project
This project aims to assess the effect of intermittent power on SOC operation and find strategies to avoid any degradation and performance decrease that results. Initially the expected intermittency, based on the predicted UK energy mix, will be assessed. Experiments will be carried out to investigate any degradation. Operating strategies and cell type and design will be varied to assess the improvements in performance. Techno-economic analysis and life cycle analysis will be carried out to assess the overall system performance compared to other state of the art processes.
Training will be provided on all the experimental equipment used, including high temperature electrolysis test stations, scanning electron microscopy, impedance spectroscopy, gas chromatography and all relevant software, specifically Aspen and GaBi.
This project covers many aspects of engineering and is in an exciting and rapidly developing field. Clean energy is becoming increasingly important and the employment prospects at the end of the project are excellent.
Lab consumables and materials for rig development e.g. gases, cell materials. Equipment is already available in my laboratory. Consumables will be funded through grants that I hold and am currently applying for.
