Institute of Electric Mobility and Energy Storage Systems

Energy Storage Systems

Lecture Content

The electrical energy in Europe is being increasingly harvested from renewable sources. For a sustainable and, at the same time, reliable energy supply, it will be necessary in the future to store the strongly weather-dependent and thus strongly temporally fluctuating supply of electrical energy safely and efficiently. At the same time, a strong decentralization of energy production is to be expected, which also requires the provision of low-cost smaller energy storage devices to stabilize local low-voltage grids. The lecture Energy Storage introduces various conventional and innovative storage principles and provides basic knowledge about possibilities and limitations of different energy storage systems. Furthermore, physics basics and basic mathematical methods for calculation and dimensioning are discussed.

  • Mechanical energy storage
  • Electrical and electromagnetic energy storage
  • (Pump) storage power plants
  • Air as a storage medium
  • Thermal energy storage
  • Electrochemical energy storage and conversion
  • Solid, liquid and gaseous energy sources.
