Learning Outcomes

The students are able to compare electrical and electrochemical energy storage systems and to choose a suitable technology for a given application, such as renewable energy or electric mobility. They are able to include economical, technical and sustainability aspects into their choice. Also, they are able to describe the working principle of different storage systems and to do simple calculations of sizing the systems.


Different energy storage systems are regarded concerning their electrical characteristics and suitability for different applications. Their working principle and ageing mechanisms are presented in reduced complexity. Cost calculations are presented. Covered technologies: capacitors, coils, flywheels, pumped hydro storage, compressed air, lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries, NiCd, high temperature batteries, redox-flow batteries, thermal energy storage
