Example text

Similar to other solid-state electrochemical energy storages, the lithium-ion battery is mainly comprised of the cathode, anode, and electrolyte. The electronic conductive anode and cathode materials are reductant and oxidant, with electrochemical potentials of mA and mC (Fermi energies eF), respectively (Goodenough and Kim, 2010). The energy gap, Eg, is the electrolyte potential window between the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) and the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO). Unless a passivating solid electrolyte interface (SEI) layer creates a barrier for electron transfer across the electrode/electrolyte interface, an anode with a mA above the LUMO will reduce the electrolyte and a cathode with a mC below the HOMO will oxidize the electrolyte (Goodenough and Kim, 2010).

In a flow-based battery, however, the CE only measures the difference between the charge and discharge capacity of a specific cycle. One cannot predict a flow battery’s cycle life based on the CE value, because the active species crossover is a reversible dynamic process. Energy density is a parameter measuring the energy conversion/delivery of a secondary battery per unit mass or volume. Generally, high energy density is preferred due to reduction of the form factor and footprint, leading to lower system cost.
