The battery laboratory is part of the institute for electrical energy systems (PowerEngS) of htwsaar. It was developed through various research projects funded by ministries of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The focus of research in the battery laboratory is on the grid connection and grid integration of storage facilities for electrical energy. There are various inverters and energy storage systems available. For the evaluation of the voltage quality and other important boundary conditions high-quality measuring equipment is available.
The laboratory offers the possibility to investigate new battery and storage technologies for their suitability for use with inverters.
