The Institute conducts research and development in power engineering, polymer technology and environmental technology. Its main area of research is technology, design, characterization and quality management. It analyzes the product behaviors during their complete life-cycle, the recycling and removal (including conception), as well as construction and operation of pilot plants.

During the course of the project, ISET will take over developing the next generation of virtual battery for lithium-ion storage. To this end, ISET will create suitable mathematical models for the storage units. The models will be verified by means of experimentation. The models will be implemented under different simulations. The realisation of a virtual battery will require, however, the development of real-time variations. Such a development makes sense because mathematical models can support the design of the new systems very effectively through simulations.  In addition, the conceptual designs and the development of peripheral systems will be made possible for new storage unit technology. Through the availability on the market, suitable simulation models are at disposal for the users of the new battery technology at the outset. Suppliers in the automobile industry have been asking for such models for some time now. Virtual systems offer many advantages in research, development and quality management. Furthermore, they can lead to shorter development times and significantly reduced costs. Through skillful use, the employment of virtual systems can involve significant advantages over the competition.

The Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research is a foundation under public law and is engaged in electro-chemical storage and conversion in its third division. From materials development and cell manufacturing processes to the development of algorithms for condition monitoring, and from developing and testing of models in laboratories, the center covers almost every area associated with the development of lithium batteries (and systems).
In addition to material synthesis, the equipment also allows the evaluation of active material, the cell and module testing of cells up to currents of 1500A and voltages of 500V. ZSW has its own safety laboratory which makes it possible to conduct standard safety tests, like overloading and short circuit tests.

Since 1992, Dr. Erik Kelder has been engaged in the research of lithium-ion batteries, and specializes in the field of materials of anodes and cathodes, as well as ceramic electrolytes, which has resulted in circa 200 publications and presentations. Dr Kelder has expertise in the development of methods for in-situ analytics of lithium-ion cells with atomic force and scanning tunneling microscopy, which are essential for the further development of electrode/electrolyte-combinations. In addition Dr. Kelder has relevant and years of experience in the preparing electrodes, as well as the synthesis of nano-particulate active material and (scanning, transmission, high-resolution) electron microscopy analysis.
