Electrical energy storage systems
This course presents an overview of energy storage and conversion technologies. Since different energy storage technologies have different features (e.g., capacity, energy density, power density, efficiency, charging cycles), selecting a proper technology for a given application is studied by means of analysis and case examples. The course focuses on developing the system level understanding of energy storage and related grid interfaces.
After the course, the student can
- Describe operating principles of key energy storage technologies, including their benefits and fundamental limitations.
- Select relevant technologies for energy storage, including storage and conversion components.
- Design an energy storage interface for a power system or a power train, as a member working cooperatively in a small multidisciplinary team.
- Share the expertise of their own field in a heterogeneous team.
Course is entirely online and can be taken from distance, no requirements for attendance. There will be pre-reading material offered for different backgrounds at the beginning of the course.
