Chemical reactions occur in a battery to produce electricity which drives electronic devices, power tools and electric vehicles. The reactions require the movement of ions and electrons from one material to another material. This course introduces some fundamental concepts of electrochemistry that are applied in the design and study of batteries.
Subjects covered in the course:
This course introduces some fundamental concepts of electrochemistry that are applied in the design and study of batteries. It will cover simple topic like the definition of electrochemical reactions, the dring force for electron transfer in redox reactions, and the description of electrochemical cells. Terms such as charge (or capacity), potential, energy, and power that are essential to describe a battery will be explained along with some examples. In addition, the course will provide a brief introduction to typical electrochemical techniques needed to characterize a battery.
At the end of the course, the students will be able to:
This course is meant for those who would like to refresh their knowledge of electrochemistry, and further advance understanding of batteries. It will have the opportunity to further explore electrochemical principles that govern the construction and operation of rechargeable batteries. Equipped with basic electrochemistry, the students are expected to better understand the rest of the courses in this program.
The course will be carried out in a DigiCampus platform which runs on any modern web browser. You can log in to DigiCampus either by using your Google account or creating a dedicated account on the website.
The courses are accessible for 90 days and the 90-day timer starts when the participant first enters the DigiCampus course environment using the course key.
The topics will be broken down into sections (lessons), which will cover the topics in more detail. The course materials will be delivered as written lessons which are accessible in the learning environment.
The courses will also feature multiple choice question quizzes which can be attempted twice without time restrictions. Keep this in mind and take your time when completing the quizzes.
Fundamentals of battery electrochemistry requires the participant to possess some mathematical knowldege: Basic understanding of the concepts like derivative and an integral and sum operations. Ability to apply equations which contain multiplication.
The participant will be rewarded with a digital course certificate after successfully completing the quizzes and giving course feedback. The Course feedback is a mandatory step, and it is done via an anonymous survey. Remember to download your certificate before your course access ends!
The course will begin on an online Zoom-meeting where the participants will receive an introduction to the DigiCampus platform, and the educators will share their greetings!
When: August 28th 2023 05:00 PM CEST
