Renewable Energy (INGENE) with specialization in battery technology
On successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
have knowledge of integration of single battery cells in larger systems
have knowledge of control systems connected to battery systems
be able to explain requirements for safe operation of battery cells in modules
be able to explain different control algorithms used for specific use cases of battery cells and modules
The course teaches students about the integration of single battery cells into larger systems and how to control these safely and optimally in the intended application. Upon successful completion, participants in the course will know the requirements for safe operation of interconnected battery cells in modules or at system level. This includes the mechanical setup, as well as electronic security measures and online measurements to check batteries ideally. Control algorithms for specific use cases, such as fast charging or system-level optimizations, for example for "peak shaving" of consumption, is critically analyzed in lectures and exercises.

Lectures and exercises
The workload for the average student is estimated at 27 hours per credit.
The student must have approved compulsory exercises in order to take the exam. An overview of compulsory assignments is given in Canvas at the start of the semester.
Assessment methods and criteria
Portfolio exam. Content will be given at the start of the semester. Graded evaluation.
The person responsible for the course decides, in cooperation with student representative, the form of student evaluation and whether the course is to have a midway or end of course evaluation in accordance with the quality system for education, chapter 4.1.
