Who are you and what can you expect?
You are a master student at a Dutch university pursuing a degree in engineering or applied physics. You have hands on experience with building stuff (e.g. drones, electric car, … something awesome?), are able to do a bit of programming (e.g. Matlab), understand fluid dynamics and transport phenomena and have good sense of humor.
You will have the opportunity to learn everything about the Blue Battery and obtain hands on experience building it as well. You can expect supervision and coaching from our side and you will receive a compensation for your work.
What do we expect?
The Blue Battery has 3 main components: water tanks, stack and pumps. You will be working on the stack design. It is called a stack because this component of the Blue Battery is made of a sandwich of ion-exchange membranes. In this project you will investigate the performance of alternative stack designs. We expect you to model and build several stacks. Examine the hydraulic and electric resistance, pressure drop across and over the membranes and other relevant fluid dynamics.
