The objective of this course is to know the different energy storage and production systems in order to acquire skills that allow you to understand the operation of some of the modern electrical energy storage and production systems and the importance of materials within the device. Likewise, its repercussion in terms of environmental impact will be analyzed. To achieve this objective, students 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:
-Learn about the most current trends in the world of materials for energy in terms of their formulation and identify the potential advantages that they can offer compared to more traditional materials.
-Design ways of optimizing the properties of different materials for specific applications through modifications in their structure and composition.
-Learn about advanced processing and synthesis systems that make it possible to obtain materials for energy with improved properties.
-Acquire useful scientific-technical knowledge and skills to solve specific problems associated with working in a laboratory in the field of materials for energy.
Regarding the specific abilities, at the end of the course, the student will be able to:
- Know the requirements that materials have to meet for energy in specific applications.
- Within certain applications, knowing how to identify which materials are currently the most used and knowing the alternatives that are currently being considered to achieve improved properties.
- Identify the necessary requirements for the selection of materials in some energy storage and production devices.
- Being able to evaluate the reasons why materials are used in particular applications.
