What are Thermal Batteries?
A thermal energy battery is a physical structure used for the purpose of storing and releasing thermal energy—see also thermal energy storage. Such a thermal battery (a.k.a. TBat) allows energy available at one time to be temporarily stored and then released at another time. The basic principles involved in a thermal battery occur at the atomic level of matter, with energy being added to or taken from either a solid mass or a liquid volume which causes the substance’s temperature to change. Some thermal batteries also involve causing a substance to transition thermally through a phase transition which causes even more energy to be stored and released due to the delta enthalpy of fusion or delta enthalpy of vaporization.
Perryman Technologies link to together with Energy Visions marketing efforts has developed a new generation of thermal batteries using special metal with high thermal capacity. The application are numerous, as follows but not limited to;
In the storage energy sector
a) Store up to 30 MW of thermal energy during off-peak hours to be released at peak hours.
b) Store energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar to be released when there are no sun or wind.
c) To provide stored energy during peak demand savings million of dollars during peaking provided by peaking power plants,
In the transportation sector
a) To Increase the capacity of the compressed air technology that used in the airpod and increased it range up to 10 fold.
b) To replace diesel engines in the locomotive electric diesel engines with our thermal battery.
c) To replace diesel in diesel engine using the thermal battery to convert liquid nitrogen into gas phase to replace pressure in the engin instead of burning high pollution generated from diesel…
This could apply to buses, trucks, cars and ships. (see animation below)
