Course Overview

The first course run will begin in August 28th 2023!

All course prices are displayed without the tax. A tax of 24 % will be added to the purchases at the checkout.

Today’s energy transition is closely linked to the development of high performance and sustainable batteries. Many challenges are still to be faced to fully exploit the promise of advanced battery technologies. Only a holistic approach that includes the development of new materials, production processes, smart manufacturing, and cell assembly, as well as end-of-life management will accelerate the path towards new technologies. This course will introduce you to the battery world, with a focus on lithium-ion batteries. The educators will share with you their expertise in the chemistry and electrochemistry of batteries, on the system engineering, test, and modeling.

Subjects covered in the course:

  • Advanced materials and components of batteries
  • Cell operation, cell stability, cell safety, cell ageing
  • Figure of merits and performance metrics of batteries
  • Classification of energy storage systems for automotive application
  • Battery manufacturing
  • protocols and methods for testing batteries and larger battery packs
  • battery performance, safety and battery management system (BMS)

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, the students will be able to

  • describe how lithium-ion batteries work
  • identify the key lithium-ion battery components and processes
  • compare different battery chemistries
  • engage discussions concerning battery assembly and engineering
  • expand their knowledge of new battery technologies

Why should learners join this course?

This course is for those who want to develop their own skills concerning the battery cell and pack components, processes, and operation, especially for the employees working in the fields of battery (cell and pack) production and recycling, technology development companies, energy sector, automotive industry, and related areas.

About the course implementation

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 video lectures which are viewable directly from the course platform.

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.

Introduction to lithium-ion batteries requires the participant to possess some basic mathematical knowldege such as multiplication, division and exponentiation.

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 06:00 PM CEST
