Characteristics of a Redox Flow (RF) battery are discussed for the transient state near practical operating setups. The RF battery has an ability of high-speed response. However, the transient characteristics have not been clearly understood because of the conjugated system structure in electric circuits, chemical reactions, and liquid flow dynamics. This research aims to serve the design of the charge/discharge cell and the optimization of the control for the dynamic operation of RF batteries.
