The future in battery technology is essential for many industries. Learn more about where - from an academic point of view - the future in battery technology is.
The further development of energy storage systems will change the world´s energy supply in the future. It is important to keep yourself up to date in a fast developing topic like battery technology. In an intense short course you get the opportunity to learn about the latest insights, innovations, working principles and materials. In the three day course the latest state-of-the-art research in energy storage will be introduced. To achieve the required energy density, lithium is one of the discussed materials. In modern approaches, scientists are doing research with the aim of achieving a minimum concerning the ageing of accumulators.
Learning Targets/ Skills
In this certificate course participants will be provided with an overview on promising concepts for the usage of e.g. lithium-ion-batteries as an electric energy storage system.
- "Ideal" versus "real" conditions
- Lead-based batteries
- Alkaline-based batteries
- Lithium-ion-batteries incl. novel concepts which are not yet commercialized
- Lithium-sulfur and lithium-oxygen batteries
- Post-lithium batteries
- Redox-flow batteries
Safety Energy Storage Systems
Introduction to energy storage system concepts including ESS applications, types, and terminology.
The program also covers basic electrical theory, introduction to battery energy storage systems (including Lead Acid, Lithium Ion, Sodium Sulfur, and Flow Batteries), failure modes and hazards, pre-incident planning, emergency response procedures and more.
These concepts are taught through the use of highly-interactive learning modules which include videos, graphics, animations, simulations, and data review exercises, and you can repeat any section on demand.
Upon completion of the course you should be able to:
