Power and Data Engineering (PDE)
Energy Storage, Conversion and Transport
|Learning objectives / competencies||
The students are familiar with various types of electrical energy conversion and storage technology, specifically, batteries, fuel cells, and electrolyzers. They are also familiar with chemical (e.g., hydrogen) and thermal energy transport technologies as well as interconversion between electrical, chemical and thermal storage (e.g., power-to-gas, power-to-heat). On the fundamental level, they know the thermodynamic and kinetic working principles of electrochemical cells. On the technology level, the students know the setup and design principles the systems, including their properties in terms of efficiency and durability. On the application level, the students are aware of applicability, requirements, and potential of different energy storage and transport systems. They have an insight into the economic status of energy storage, conversion and transport technologies and understand the future trends in research and development.
