The Battery testing course introduces you to the purpose of battery testing. Speci­fi­cally, you will be introduced to different methods of battery testing that allow battery cells and systems to be evaluated properly after manufacturing. 

You will discuss the importance of testing, and explore the related standards, required testing infrastructure, safety measure, and analysis tools. Finally, you will explore how to create and incorporate battery models in different applications in order to assess the performance of the battery during use.

Learning outcomes

This course empowers learners to: 

  • Explain the exact need for a BMS in a battery-supported application and list the set of functions aBMS should support
  • Interpret the BMS speci­fi­ca­tions in light of the basic functionalities
  • List the most important BMS components, their requi­re­ments, and their value for the system
  • Explain the concept of State of Health and State of Charge
  • Evaluate if a string of battery cells is balanced and what the impact is of imbalance.

Target group

This course is beneficial for battery system integrators, battery technicians, Energy Management System developers and providers, and researchers in the field of energy willing to develop or build further on battery testing.

European colla­bo­ra­tions for innovation in sustainable energy

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an EU body created by the European Union to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. EIT is active in different industries, such as manufacturing, health and culture. EIT InnoEnergy is responsible for accele­rating sustainable energy innovations and one of its tools for doing this is the European Battery Alliance for battery storage (EBA), that amongst other things produces training material for battery technology and electromobility. 

EIT InnoEnergy and EBA work with training providers all across Europe to adjust the training to local needs. Göteborgs Tekniska College are proud to be the first Swedish college to provide the online training from EIT InnoEnergy and EBA to the Swedish market.
