The Sustainable Energy Systems Laboratory offers extensive equipment for research into economic, sustainable and safe energy storage systems.
The Laboratory for Sustainable Energy Storage is dedicated to research in the field of future battery systems. An important focus will be the interdisciplinary research of sustainable, safe and economical battery systems. The field of application ranges from electric cars to trucks, aircraft, ships and stationary energy storage systems.
In the laboratory, facilities are available for testing individual cells as well as a high-voltage test bench from AVL (performance data: 800 V/600 A/160 kW) for testing batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors. The high-voltage test bench can be coupled with an 18m³ climate chamber from ATT Umweltsimulation to simulate environmental influences.
A large number of cell testers are available for comprehensive service life tests. Together with numerous smaller temperature and climate chambers, extensive research projects on cell ageing, service life and battery modelling can be realised.
