Introduction to Batteries:

In this course, we will discuss how batteries fit into the energy context and explore different perspectives of current battery technologies. Then, we will take a look inside a battery to understand its main components. Finally, you will learn how to classify different battery technologies. Remember to reflect upon the role of batteries as energy storage devices, and how their components can affect the characteristics of each battery technology.

Current Battery Technologies:

In this course, you will learn about the main properties, advantages and challenges of each battery type. Lectures will provide you with in-depth knowledge on the key characteristics and main applications of eight currently available technologies, starting with the widely used lithium-ion batteries present in most of our electronic devices. We will then explore the conventional lead-acid batteries present in ICE vehicles. We will go over the categories of primary and reserve batteries then finish up with an overview of flow batteries, sodium-beta batteries and nickel-based batteries.
