About

The overall goal of KTH Royal Institute of Technology's Batteries course is for the participants to acquire knowledge of the entire value chain for batteries.

Overview

What you will study

The Batteries course offered by KTH Royal Institute of Technology is carried out mainly through lectures and a larger project. The project includes experimental and calculation tasks, and a smaller literature study which is presented orally and in a written report. The final grade is based on a written exam and the project.

For a passing grade, after completing the course, students must be able to:

  • Describe the principle of operation, performance measures and characterisation methods for batteries.
  • Explain and calculate how operating conditions, material choice and design affect the battery's properties.
  • Discuss application areas and system aspects, compare and evaluate different battery technologies, and to inform about the technology.

Programme Structure

The program focuses on:

  • Basic principles of electrochemical energy storage.
  • Different types of batteries.
  • Materials, design, properties and performance of different types of batteries.
  • Modelling of battery characteristics.
  • Experimental characterisation of batteries.
  • Manufacturing of batteries.
  • Battery control.
  • Use of batteries for electromobility, in the power grid and for portable applications.
  • System integration, socio-economic aspects, safety, recycling, circularity and sustainability.
