Zinc–Bromine Redox Flow Battery

Application ID: 103271

The zinc bromine redox flow battery is an electrochemical energy storage technology suitable for stationary applications.

Compared to other flow battery chemistries, the Zn-Br cell potentially features lower cost, higher energy densities and better energy efficiencies.

In the cell during charge, zinc metal is deposited on the negative electrode, whereas bromine is produced on the positive electrode.

This tutorial models the cell voltage, as well as the bromine and zinc production, during a charge-discharge cycle

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
