Battery storage is the future. But that future hinges on maintaining full control over the operation of batteries and building a robust system that enables connection to the electric grid, the consumer or the electric vehicle.

Battery Management, Connection and Control course will allow you to dive deep into power conversion systems that connect storage systems to smart grids and consumers, learning how to choose the right type of converter while assessing overall system performance with respect to energy efficiency. It will also be your introduction to battery management systems (BMS): the masterminds behind battery packs. In this course you will thoroughly explore the BMS and the critical parametres that we can control.  And you will discover the use of battery testing and operation simulation in order to predict real-world in-service behaviour. 


Delivered by experts from the InnoEnergy ecosystem, one of Europe’s foremost authorities in battery storage, this unique course empowers you to:

  • Expertly discuss the role of power conversion systems 
  • Distinguish and assess the type of power converters for battery applications
  • Understand and explain the importance and function of battery management systems in the control and operation of batteries 
  • Describe different battery testing procedures and the relevant characteristics that can be determined 
  • Understand how we can simulate battery operation in order to predict in-service behaviour.

Participants will be granted a professional certificate upon successful completion of the course.

What will you learn?

Battery Management, Connection and Control course consists of sixmodules and is self-paced.

Module 1: Dive into the world of power conversion starting with an introduction, to the basic principles of power conversion and the relation to the energy efficiency of the energy system 

Module 2: Discover why power converters are needed for battery applications and how can we choose the right type for a specific application. 

Module 3: Dive deeper into the typical topologies and main functionalities of power conversion systems (PCSs) for connecting batteries to diverse electrical systems.

Module 4: Discover battery management systems and explain their components and functions. 

Module 5: Explore the different types of battery testing and related standards and regulations. 

Module 6: Explore modelling, control and simulation of batteries.
