Abstract

The deployment of energy storage for long/medium term has become a major challenge in electrical systems. Investigation of various components of traditional Daniell electro-chemical cell and implementing new materials such as Kevlar carbon fiber electrodes and a porous membrane as the separator rechargeable characteristics to create a modified rechargeable Zn-Cu cell was achieved. As a proof of concept, a 3D printed micro-cell was constructed for testing and charging As the research uses aqueous electrolytes, future modifications and research in cell construction can also be used to construct a a potential Zn-Cu redox flow battery, which would then have the potential to store energy over long periods in copper sulphate solution and zinc metal. This could provide a useful alternative energy storage for isolated renewable resource PV based micro-grids in many parts of the world.
