Secondary Batteries 2015
EWE Research Centre
for Energy Technology
at the Carl von Ossietzky
University of Oldenburg
CONCLUDED pilot course: Secondary Batteries
Participants learn about the problems and challenges of energy supply due to fluctuating energy resources with varying and seasonal load profiles. This knowledge is coupled with the state of the art storage technologies and their appliances due to capacity and efficiency.
The students will receive a look at the main characteristics of different electricity storage techniques and their field of application. These characteristics could be used to make comparisons in order to determine appropriate techniques for different types of applications or roles in a grid system.
For evaluation the participants will we asked frequently about aspects of this course by questionnaires. The students should show a proactive involvement in the learning process. Active participation and feedback about the content and the structure of the modules is expected. The cooperation is essential for the quality of our continuing education programme to reach „market maturity“.
Examination and Participations that were successfully passed during the pilot phase will be recognized and credited towards the future degree programme.
- Bachelor in Physics, Engineering or Chemistry or similar occupational experience
- research in scientific literature
- intuitive understanding of mathematical methods
Language The course is given in English.
