In this project for the first time a large scale stationary redox-flow battery (CellCube FB200-400 DC) of the company Gildemeister energy solutions has been integrated into a German distribution grid in order to reinforce an electrical network with a high share of renewable energies. The main aim is to quantify which and in what amount network expansion measures can be avoided through the usage of battery storage systems. In addition it is examined to what extend the balancing act between economic and grid-supportive operation is manageable. The partners of the project are the Reiner Lemoine Institut gGmbH, SMA Solar Technology AG, LEW Verteilnetz GmbH and Younicios AG.
