The vanadium battery will be installed as a component in SYSLAB which is the lab facility established at Risø for testing and investigating distributed power systems.

SYSLAB consists of two wind turbines, a pv-array, a diesel genset, different types of
load and an office building with intelligent load control. SYSLAB also includes a distributed control system.

The tests on the vanadium battery will include specific tests on the battery alone such as
response tests, efficiency tests at different levels of SOC etc. and tests and measurements while it provides different services to grid including smoothing of wind turbine output, load balancing and similar services. A key point for the investigations is comparison
between laboratory test performance and performance during normal operation.
