Introduction to Power Electronic Converters:

In this course, you will learn why we need power converters. We will discuss the basic principles of power conversion and you will receive a brief overview of the various types of power converters. You will learn how to recognize different voltage, current, and power levels, as well as the AC or DC character of electrical power, through examples of common, present-day electrical applications.

Power conversion and efficiency in battery systems:

In this course, you will be taken into the lab to get acquainted with power conversion principles and efficiency measurements. You will learn how to match the right type of converter to various real-world battery applications, while assessing overall system performance with respect to energy efficiency. The lessons will give you the knowledge you need to be able to list the main origins of losses in battery packs and judge the impact of the charge and discharge rates on battery efficiency and effective capacity. You will also see some examples of the use of power electronic interfaces for batteries and compare power electronic interfaces across applications.

Power Electronics and Grid Connection:

In this course, your instructor will take you deeper into the world of power conversion systems (PCSs) from a power electronics perspective. You will learn about the typical topologies and functionalities of these systems which are located between a battery and the electrical system we want to connect to. For example, the electrical network, the powertrain of a car, or the distribution system of a building.

Battery Management Systems:

In this course, you will learn why a BMS is needed for different battery technologies and look at several possible configurations. You will also learn about the communication means and advanced features of the BMS, which provide more information about the state of the battery system and guarantee that it is used optimally.

Battery Testing:

In this course, you will be introduced to different methods of battery testing that allow battery cells and systems to be evaluated properly after manufacturing. We will also discuss the importance of testing, and explore the related standards, required testing infrastructure, and analysis tools. Finally, we will talk about how to create and incorporate battery models in different applications in order to assess the performance of the battery during use.

Modelling, simulation and control:

In this course, you will dive a bit deeper into modelling, control and simulation of batteries operation. You will be able to understand typical voltage discharge curves that characterize battery cells. You will also learn about the equivalent electrical circuits with which we can model battery cells. You will also be able to identify the parameters of such equivalent electrical circuits from datasheets and describe the tuning of the controllers of DC-DC converters for batteries.
