Electrochemical Flow Capacitor: A New Concept for Grid Scale Energy Storage
Prof. Yury Gogotsi, Director, A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute, Drexel University

Professor Yury Gogotsi, ECCAP Symposium, AABC 2013Prof. Yury Gogotsi is Distinguished UniversityProfessor and Trustee Chair of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University. He also serves as Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute. His Ph.D. is in Physical Chemistry from Kiev Polytechnic and D.Sc. in Materials Engineering from Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.

His research group works on nanostructured carbons and other nanomaterials. He has co-authored more than 300 journal papers and obtained more than 40 patents. He is a Fellow of AAAS, MRS, ECS and ACerS and a member of the World Academy of Ceramics.

Abstract

Grid-level energy storage has emerged as one of the key technological challenges impeding the full integration of renewable energy technologies and grid resiliency. Due to the inherent instabilities of the grid, 100s of billions of dollars are lost annually across the globe because of power outages. Thus, grid energy storage offers the opportunity to dampen these effects and strengthen electricity markets on a whole.

Gogotsi team at Drexel University has developed a new technology for grid energy storage called the electrochemical flow capacitor (EFC). The EFC concept benefits from the advantages of both supercapacitors and flow batteries in that it is capable of rapid charging/discharging, has a long cycle lifetime, and enables energy storage and power to be decoupled and optimized for the desired application. This presentation introduces the EFC concept, and highlights:Prof. Yury Gogotsi at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference Europe  June 24 – 28, 2013

The key differences from alternative electrical energy storage systems

A flowable carbon-electrolyte electrode (slurry) for capacitive energy storage

Higher power compared to flow batteries

Scalable system achitecture

The fundamental working principles of the EFC

Electrostatic charge storage

Conductive particle-to-particle network

Rheological performance of capacitive slurry

The current EFC research activities

Movement toward increased energy density via redox-active additives to the flowable electrode (pseudocapacitance)

Flow studies examining conductivity changes with flow rate

Overall System Performance

That presentation concludes by describing team’s progress toward a mid-level demonstration prototype of the EFC and an overview of future directions for the EFC.

Nanodiamonds Can Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds in the electrolyte solution of lithium ion batteries prevent the formation of dendrites that cause runaway heat-up resulting in fires. Source: Drexel University and Tsinghua UniversityScientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential.
