CHE 56200 - Battery Systems

Credit Hours: 3.00.  This course is designed to introduce fundamentals of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering of primary and rechargeable lithium ion batteries (LIBs) to undergraduate and graduate students. The course will be reviewing working principles of LIBs. Strong emphasis will be given on the Li-ion battery technology, primary batteries, nanotechnology implementation and the materials design. Beyond conventional Li-ion systems and Pb-acid batteries, next generation Na-ion, K-ion and Li-S batteries will be discussed. Students will be understanding energy density calculations, fabrication and testing mechanism of batteries utilizing engineered electrodes, electrolytes and separators. Broader perspectives on sustainable, cost effective, longer lasting battery manufacturing will be provided.Credits: 3.00
