5.06.411 Energy Storage I


  • Fr , 27.01.2017 14:00 - 16:00
  • Montag: 14:15 - 16:00, wöchentlich


The students will get to know a broad range of technologies for the storage of energy in the electricity grids of the future. The lecture will have a certain focus on electrochemical electricity storage (e. g. redox-flow-batteries), technologies that couple the storage of heat and electricity (such as combined heat and power units), and electric cars. Modern batteries such as the lithium ion technology will be emphasized.

The course wants to give a basic overview of energy storage technologies as efficient and environmentally benign technologies supporting renewable energy implementation. Topics covered are:
• Renewable energy fluctuation and architecture of power grids
• Electrochemical and non-electrochemical approaches for the storage of electricity
• Electrochemical fundamentals of batteries, primary batteries, secondary batteries, system aspects
Storing heat instead of electricity: Heat pumps and co-generation as a bridge between electricity and heat
