This course presents an overview of energy storage and conversion technologies. Since different energy storage technologies have different features (e.g., capacity, energy density, power density, efficiency, charging cycles), selecting a proper technology for a given application is studied by means of analysis and case examples. The course focuses on developing the system level understanding of energy storage and related grid interfaces. After the course, the students can design simple energy storage system.
