The objective of this course is that the student knows the different systems of storage and production of energy in order to acquire capacities that allow him to understand the operation of some of the modern systems of storage and production of electrical energy and the importance that they have. the materials inside the device. Likewise, its repercussion in terms of environmental impact will be analyzed. To achieve this goal the student must acquire a series of knowledge, skills and attitudes.
With regard to knowledge, at the end of the course the student will be able to:
-Know the most current trends in the world of materials for energy in terms of their formulation and identify the potential advantages they can offer compared to more traditional materials.
-Design ways of optimization in the properties of different materials for specific applications through modifications in their structure and composition.
-To know advanced processing and synthesis systems that allow to obtain materials for energy with improved properties.
-To acquire knowledge and useful scientific-technical skills to solve specific problems associated with work in a laboratory in the field of materials for energy.
As for the specific abilities, at the end of the course the student will be able to:
- Know the requirements that materials for energy have to meet in specific applications.
- Within certain applications, know how to identify which materials are the most used today and know the alternatives that are contemplated at this time to achieve improved properties.
- Identify the necessary requirements for the selection of materials in some energy storage and production devices.
- Be able to evaluate the reasons why materials are used in particular applications.
