EE/CEE 292X presents "Basic working principles of batteries"

Topic: 
Basic working principles of batteries
Monday, September 30, 2019 - 3:00pm to Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - 2:55pm
Venue:

Abstract / Description: 

We will introduce the four main components of a battery: positive electrode, negative electrode, electrolyte, and current collector. A battery is classified by the phase of the electrode, electrolyte, energy carrier and type of chemical reaction. We will briefly introduce lithium-ion, solid-state, liquid metal, sodium sulfur and lithium air battery chemistries. Finally, we will discuss charging and discharging characteristics.
