IMPROVING ESP-R BATTERY MODEL WITH ACTIVE BATTERY LIFE CONTROL AND COVERAGE OF VANADIUM REDOX FLOW BATTERIES

Hajo Ribbering, Weimin Wang

Abstract: The ESP-r battery model has been improved by including battery lifetime estimation based upon the actual load pattern of the battery during the simulation, and with a battery life controller that will prevent excessive aging of the battery. The lifetime estimation method and life preserving controller are described and example simulations are presented that clearly illustrates the necessity of a life preserving operating mode. The ESP-r battery model has a generic structure that allows the model to be used for different battery types. The model was successfully expanded to also represent a Vanadium Redox flow Battery.
