Description: The importance of the li-ion batteries is booming and after dominating portable electronics applications, they are entering into new sectors like grid support applications and propelling of the electric vehicles. The penetration of renewables in the power system is considered to significantly increase in near future; thus, batteries can play a crucial role in the reliable and cost efficient grid-integration of intermittent energy sources. Besides, the grid support applications, li-ion batteries have begun to play a major role in the automotive market. The use of batteries in automotive applications is a promising option in order to replace the internal combustion engine cars with ideally, zero emissions vehicles (full electric vehicles), or with controlled emission vehicles (hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles). The course is divided into 3 days as follows:

DAY1: (Battery technologies and grid applications)

During that first day, state of the art on the energy storage technologies will be provided with special focus on the li-ion batteries. Moreover, the services that the energy storage can provide for grid applications will be discussed. This will be followed by an industrial lecturer presentation and Matlab exercise on optimal sizing of storage in different stationary applications.

DAY2: (Li-ion batteries performance and lifetime modelling)

The second day focuses on different aspects of lithium ion technologies testing and modeling (performance and lifetime). Simulation studies in Matlab will be performed, where course participants will develop their own performance model of the Li-ion battery.

DAY3: (Automotive applications)

The, third day is devoted to automotive applications. Lithium ion technologies for automotive applications will be discussed. Aspects related to li-ion battery management systems for vehicles will be covered. Moreover, sizing and control of battery powered vehicles will be addressed. Third day will be finished with the exercise on li-ion battery powered vehicle.


Basic experience in Matlab/Simulink
Fee: The fee for the course is 10.000 DKK for industry people, 6.500 DKK for PhD students and academics outside of Denmark, and1.500 DKK for PhD students in Denmark. The registration fee includes: coffee and lunch for all days,gala dinner and the course materials.
