Electrical Energy Storage Systems Theory
- 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
Form of learning:
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 students can design simple energy storage system.
