Abstract
In this SBIR project, Aegis technology, teamed with American Lithium Energy and Sandia National Laboratory (SNL), proposes to develop a cost-effective, highly efficient, compact energy storage system that can be integrated with renewable energy system. The energy storage system is based on a high-energy-density, high charging rate Li-ion battery that will be integrated with high-efficiency, compact SiC inverter. In this project, the research team will leverage previous experience in the development high-performance Li-ion battery, SiC inverters, and energy storage system, and develop a novel class of energy storage system with desirable energy density, operational flexibility and shelf life necessary for renewable energy applications. In the Phase I, we will investigate the concept feasibility, with a focus on the evaluation of the system’ attributes , including energy density, power density, size, transient dynamics, shelf life, and anticipated maintenance requirements, by using small subscale prototypes. This feasibility study will provide a solid basis for the subsequent Phase II development that will optimize/finalize the design concept from Phase I, fabricate demonstration units, validate prototype capabilities using laboratory testing, and provide the associated cost/benefit analysis.
