Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to provide you with the principles of energy storage systems and in-depth knowledge on the operation and implementation of energy storage system in current power system domain. The unit also covers different technologies of energy storage and hydrogen production/storage systems used in current electrical energy projects. The unit will focus on both grid connected and islanded Microgrids and explain how energy storage systems play a key role on addressing the intermittency of renewable energy components in the modern electrical networks.

Unit Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
ULO1Appraise relevant energy storage systems and their role in modern electrical systems (K2,K3,K5,S1,S2).
ULO2Analyse and evaluate charging, discharging and state of charge characteristics for different energy storage systems(K2,K3,S1,S2).
ULO3Analyse and reflect on the cause of efficiency losses and life-expectancy in various energy storage systems (K2,K3,S1,S2).
ULO4Discuss the role of electrical energy storage systems in modern smart grid and their future development trends (K2,K3,K5,S1,S2).
ULO5Design and simulate the energy storage system for real world application based on power quality factor and operational, financial and environmental constraints (A2,K2,K3,K5,S1,S2,S3).
