Abstract

Zinc bromine redox flow battery (ZBFB) has been paid attention since it has been considered as an important part of new energy storage technology. This paper introduces the working principle and main components of zinc bromine flow battery, makes analysis on their technical features and the development process of zinc bromine battery was reviewed, and emphasizes on the three main components of zinc bromine battery, and summarizes the materials and applications of electrolyte, membrane and electrode. At the same time, the solution to the technical problems of zinc bromine flow battery is also briefly analyzed. Finally, the future development of zinc bromine battery system is prospected.
