Using lifepo4 phosphate batteries in the range-extended electric vehicle market can not only improve vehicle safety, but also support the marketization of range-extended electric vehicles, alleviating concerns about mileage, safety, price, charging, and battery problems for pure electric vehicles. Many car companies have launched range-extended electric vehicle projects.
The starting type li iron phosphate battery not only has the characteristics of a power lithium battery, but also has the ability to output large instantaneous power. It can replace traditional lead-acid batteries with power-type lithium batteries that use less than one degree of electricity, and replace traditional starting motors and generators with BSG motors. It not only has idle stop/start function, but also has functions such as engine shutdown coasting, coasting and braking energy recovery, acceleration assistance, and electric cruising.
The li iron phosphate battery has a series of unique advantages such as high working voltage, high energy density, long cycle life, low self-discharge rate, no memory effect, and environmental friendliness. It also supports infinite expansion and is suitable for large-scale energy storage. It has good application prospects in the fields of safely connecting renewable energy power stations to the grid, grid peak regulation, distributed power stations, UPS power supplies, emergency power supply systems, and so on.
With the rise of the energy storage market, in recent years, some power battery companies have successively laid out energy storage businesses, opening up new application markets for lifepo4 batteries. On the one hand, because of its ultra-long life, safety, large capacity, environmental friendliness and other characteristics, lithium iron phosphate can transfer to the energy storage field and extend the value chain, promoting the establishment of a new business model. On the other hand, lifepo4 batteries supporting energy storage systems have become the mainstream choice in the market. According to reports, lifepo4 batteries have been used in electric buses, electric trucks, user-side, and power grid-side frequency modulation.
As integrated technology continues to mature and costs continue to decrease, lifepo4 batteries will be widely used in UPS power storage batteries.
With the continuous expansion of capacity and scale, the continuous maturity of integrated technology, and long-term testing of safety and reliability, li iron phosphate battery energy storage systems are expected to be widely used in safety connecting renewable energy power stations to the grid, and improving the quality of electric energy in wind power and photovoltaic power generation.
Due to its advantages such as good cycling life, safety, and low-temperature performance, lifepo4 batteries have also been widely used in the military field.
