For many years, the authors have been demonstrating their cell modeling tools and cell retrofit skills using those modeling tools to present demonstration cell retrofit studies. One recent series of cell retrofit studies leads to the presentation of a cell design predicted to be able to operate at 10 kWh/kg of Al.
The authors now embark on a new demonstration retrofit study this time using a Chinese cell technology inspired base case as a starting point. There are plenty of public domain information on Chinese cell technology: potshell, busbar and lining design, so that Chinese cell technology inspired base case cell design is quite similar to existing Chinese cell technologies.
This first retrofit study aims at demonstrating the huge potential of productivity increase that those existing Chinese cell technologies represent without compromising the power efficiency.
