We use numerical modeling to optimize battery storage system designs, prevent failures, and prolong the life of battery units
Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are taking on more and more of the world’s energy storage needs each year. At Airflow Sciences, we understand the capacity needs and challenges surrounding this relatively new technology, and we help energy companies innovate by making battery systems more cost-effective, safe, and sustainable.
Our engineers are industry-leading experts in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). We combine high performance computing power with real-world experience in the energy sector.
Featured Case Studies
Indoor Storage Facilities
When BESS are housed indoors, proper ventilation is essential to prevent overheating of battery units. We can simulate your room design and optimize your cooling system. This means you can achieve the temperature control you need while maintaining the lowest possible energy load.
Our simulations evaluate room flow patterns, stagnation zones, and identify bypass and recirculation issues. We provide the data you need to prevent equipment losses, minimize failure events, and reduce operating expenses.
Outdoor Storage Facilities
Outdoor storage facilities are subject to the elements. With our expertise in modeling wind scenarios, we can test various weather conditions by computer simulation, gaining valuable insight on how wind and outside temperatures affect battery operation and longevity.
CFD model studies can help to understand and minimize failure incidents or fire events and aid in the development of site safety plans. We can also perform computer analysis of the surrounding area, where it is possible to model chemical concentrations in the air based on wind speed and direction.
