Creating a Idealized Power-Capacity Storage Component

Scroll Prev Top Next More


The Idealized Power-Capacity storage model is intended to simulate certain kinds of storage systems that allow users to size energy and power independently. This option requires additional parameters, listed and described here. The nominal voltage, max charge rate, max charge current, max discharge current, min. state of charge, and conventional lifetime inputs are disabled for this storage type. The vanadium redox flow batteries are an example of storage systems that use the Idealized Power-Capacity model.




Cell Stack Lifetime

The lifetime of the cell stack. The cell stack replacement cost occurs at the end of the cell stack lifetime.

Electrolyte Lifetime

The lifetime of the electrolyte. The electrolyte replacement cost occurs at the end of the electrolyte lifetime.

To create a storage component with this model, start by copying another storage component that uses it, such as the Generic Vanadium battery.
