Intro to Electrochemical Energy Systems

A 20-hour live non-credit seminar for professional engineers interested in an enhanced skill set in the areas of hybrid, plug-in and electric vehicles, and more specifically towards systems for electrochemical energy conversion (fuel cells) and storage (batteries). This seminar provides an overview of the basic electrochemistry principles and models, along with an overview of advanced batteries (primarily Li-ion chemistry) and fuel cells (primarily PEM) and their implementation as systems within automotive applications.

Additional topics include technical features and modeling at the cell level, as well as systems integration, modeling, diagnostics and control. Particular attention will be devoted to the numerous challenges faced by electrochemical storage and conversion systems towards their integration for use in automotive applications, ranging from energy storage/charging, packaging, control, performance, optimization and cost targets.
