Battery energy storages in smart grids

Individual course

This is a core course.

This course will cover topics related to electric vehicles effects on Smart Grids and multi-objective management of batteries in future power systems.

After completing the course, the student

  • is able to understand reasons for power system changes, impact of these changes and need for utilisation of flexible resources like battery energy storages to manage the impacts.
  • will understand the key role of battery energy storages in the future power system.
  • will gain strong knowledge about basics of battery technologies and their modeling and management as well as an overview of battery storage solutions in Smart Grids, smart homes and hybrid power plants.

Course exercises will enable student to obtain in depth understanding related to some relevant battery storage topic.

This is an online course except for the simulation exercises which call for attendance.
