Only for CAS in Applied Technology in Energy and MAS in Applied Technology.
O3 credits2GC. Schaffner
AbstractThe module provides an introduction to the fundamental science and the underlying technology throughout the rest of the CAS in Applied Technology in Energy.
ObjectiveParticipants will have an overview over today’s energy system (including energy generation, distribution and consumption) functions and will understand the underlying scientific principles, technologies as well as the regulatory frameworks.
ContentToday’s energy system (including energy generation, distribution and consumption) will be explained, starting from the underlying scientific principles moving to energy technologies as well as the relevant regulatory frameworks and economic principles. Special attention will be paid to understanding renewable (solar & wind) electricity generation and why this rapidly evolving technology is driving change in multiple industries. If time permits, the basics of climate change science and its relationship to energy related business decisions will be discussed as well.
Prerequisites / NoticeMAS AT participants must have successfully completed CAS 1 and 2 in order to enrol.

Non-MAS applicants must satisfy the following requirements:
- Demonstrated managerial experience working with technology companies or industries
- Good knowledge of English
- ETH recognized Master’s degree*

CAS ATE applications will be reviewed by the Admission Committee of the Certificate Programme. The final decision is communicated in writing.

* For non-MAS applicants, preference may be given to applicants with technical degrees or demonstrated practical knowledge in a relevant field for the purpose of maintaining a higher level of technical discussion.

Only for CAS in Applied Technology in Energy and MAS in Applied Technology.
O3 credits2GV. Wood
AbstractThis module provides an overview over the most important technologies for electrical energy storage, with an emphasis on batteries.
ObjectiveParticipants will gain knowledge about energy storage technologies. They will understand technological progress as well as barriers in the future development of batteries.
ContentThe most important technologies for electrical energy storage in industry will be explained, with an emphasis on batteries. They will be introduced to the energy storage technologies in use in industry as well as technology- and market-driven opportunities for change and new applications. The design, manufacture, operation, and usage scenarios of lithium ion batteries will be explained in detail. Future improvements in battery energy storage will be explored in terms of both likely progress and critical barriers.

247-0102-00LElectric Power Grid Systems Restricted registration - show details
Only for CAS in Applied Technology in Energy and MAS in Applied Technology.
O3 credits2GC. Franck, G. Hug
AbstractThis module provides an overview over the technical operation and management of power grid systems.
ObjectiveParticipants will gain an understanding of the operation and management of power grid systems, including challenges and opportunities for future developments.
ContentFor decades, electric power grid systems remained essentially unchanged. Now, they are undergoing significant changes driven by technology. Despite or maybe even because of these changes it is important to understand the fundamental setup and workings of the electric power grid.

Participants will learn about the technical operation and management of traditional power grid systems. The fundamental equipment and mechanisms responsible for transforming and transporting electricity to end users and the concept of AC power will be explained. Typical grid connections and management and the underlying physical principles will be discussed. The opportunities for and barriers to future grid technology and systems from both an operator’s and end user’s perspective will be explored, potentially including distributed generation, microgrids/islanding, demand response, virtual power plants, etc.

247-0103-00LElectrification and Practical Applications Restricted registration - show details
Only for CAS in Applied Technology in Energy and MAS in Applied Technology.
O3 credits2GC. Schaffner
AbstractThe focus of this module is on understanding electrification technology and their practical application in multiple industries.
ObjectiveParticipants will understand the opportunities and challenges of the electrification of different sectors (e.g. transportation, buildings, industry).
ContentThis course takes a case study approach to look at how electrification is currently impacting products and technology use in manufacturing, electronics, automotive/ transport, building construction and facilities management. Some policy and regulatory elements may be discussed to provide context, but the focus is on understanding the technical and practical aspects of implementation. The technical results that can be expected will be discussed in terms of power availability and security, energy efficiency, etc. as well as how electrification supports other potential technical goals such as digitalization and automation.
