Internal combustion engines with flow batteries

Guangrong Zou (Inventor)

    Research output: PatentPatent


    The invention concerns an arrangement for a power generating unit (10) and a method for providing a cooling medium to an internal combustion engine. The arrangement comprises an internal combustion engine (11) and a flow battery (12) having anode and cathode electrolyte circulation circuits (12A, 12B). The flow battery is electrically connected to the internal combustion engine and to an electrical power load (13). At least one cooling circuit (19A, 19B) for cooling said internal combustion engine and at least one of said electrolyte circuits (12A, 12B) are combined to circulate said electrolyte through said flow battery (12) and through said cooling circuit as a cooling medium for said internal combustion engine (11).
