|Abstract||Batteries enable sustainable mobility, renewable power integration, various power grid services, and residential energy storage. Linked with low cost PV, Li-ion batteries are positioned to shift the 19th-century centralized power grid into a 21st-century distributed one. As with battery integration, this course combines understanding of electrochemistry, heat & mass transfer, device engineering.|
|Objective||The learning objectives are:|
- Know the history of batteries and understand the material science breakthroughs that enabled disruptive battery technologies.
- Understand the physical processes behind making battery models in order to predict lifetime.
- Understand system and battery requirements for various applications in the modern power system and sustainable mobility, with a deep focus on replacing diesel buses with electric buses combined with charging infrastructure.
- Critically assess progresses in material science for novel battery technologies reported in literature, and understand the opportunities and challenges these materials could have.
|Content||- History and introduction to electrochemistry & batteries.|
- Li-ion batteries & next generation batteries.
- Battery lifetime modelling by aging, thermal, and electric sub-models.
- Introduction to power conversion systems and control & protection.
- Battery systems for the modern power grid and sustainable mobility.
