AAU is once again inviting PhD students and other interested people to join their PhD course on storage systems based on Li-ion batteries for grid support and automotive applications.
Time: 24-27 October, 2017
Place: Aalborg University, Pontoppidanstræde 111
The importance of the li-ion batteries is booming and after dominating portable electronics applications, they are entering into new sectors like grid support applications and propelling of the electric vehicles. The penetration of renewables in the power system is considered to significantly increase in near future; thus, batteries can play a crucial role in the reliable and cost efficient grid integration of intermittent energy sources. Besides, the grid support applications, li-ion batteries have begun to play a major role in the automotive market. The use of batteries in automotive applications is a promising option in order to replace the internal combustion engine cars with ideally, zero emissions vehicles (full electric vehicles), or with controlled emission vehicles (hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles).
