Welcome to the EDSAG Energy Laboratory

Hydrogen/Bromine Flow Battery System

The Electrochemical Engineering Laboratory (EDSAG) was established at Ondokuz Mayıs University in 2014 by Dr. Berker Fıçıcılar to investigate the needs of novel electrochemical energy storage technologies. EDSAG Energy Laboratory specializes in the design, characterization and CFD modeling of next generation electrochemical energy conversion systems, particularly redox flow battery and Hydrogen/Air PEM fuel cell technology. In our energy laboratory, current areas of research include hydrogen production & storage, polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells for stationary & portable applications and redox flow battery technology for smart-grid and off-grid applications. EDSAG utilizes an extensive methodology, including: advanced system and component diagnostics, system design and development, materials physical & electrochemical characterization, and modeling & simulation of electrochemical energy storage systems.

The EDSAG team has been growing rapidly with the researchers at both graduate and undergraduate level. With the interdisciplinary nature of electrochemical energy storage systems, EDSAG group aims to include individuals with different backgrounds to cope with the challenging issues encountered in the current projects.
