In a flow battery setup, carbon felt materials are compressed to obtain higher performance from the battery. In this work, a commercially available carbon felt material, commonly used as electrodes in Vanadium Redox Flow Battery setups was evaluated for the transport properties (diffusivity, permeability, pressure drop required for maintaining flow, among others) while under seven set levels of compression, using an image analysis coupled with pore network modeling approach. X-ray computed tomography has been used to obtain the microstructure of a commercially available electrode under compressed conditions. An open-source pore network modeling tool, OpenPNM has been used to investigate the transport properties of the porous felt material at each of the set compression levels. The results from the modeling are compared against experimentally obtained electrolyte transport patterns visualized using synchrotron X-ray radiography. The electrical resistance of the carbon felt electrode was measured experimentally using a four-probe method. The compression resulted in a 58% reduction in permeability, and a 25% reduction in single-phase diffusion. ... mehrThis combination of ex-situ characterization of the electrical and fluid transport through the electrodes provides valuable data for modeling flow battery systems, and validating hypothesis from in situ testing.
