    As intermittent renewable energy is being implemented and rolled out more rapidly to compensate for the termination of fossil fuel-based power plants, the need for large-scale storage technologies is increasing. However, depending on the particular application and electricity market in which a battery energy storage system (BESS) operates, many of the potential applications of large-scale BESS are not yet economically viable, making optimal economic operation crucial for accelerated deployment. Especially frequent replacements and thus rapid aging is to be avoided. Among other
    influencing factors, thermal management plays an important
    role in minimizing the aging of the battery. However, keeping a
    large-scale storage containment within a narrow temperature
    range leads to additional energy costs for cooling and heating.
    To weigh these two economically vital factors, this paper, based
    on a master’s thesis, introduces a techno-economic model which
    enables the determination of an optimal temperature range
    customized for each BESS. Moreover, an exemplary utilization
    of this model is demonstrated by outlining a simulation study.
    The main results of the study show the dependency of the
    net present value (NPV) on various allowed temperature
    ranges within the BESS containment. It is found that for
    ideal operation, the thermal management system should be
    tailored for each use case rather than being set to a particular
    temperature range based solely on the BESS aging.
