Basic knowledge batteries

Online Seminar
Participation fee: 595 €

The seminar language is German. In this seminar you will acquire expertise in lithium-ion batteries in traction batteries. In addition to the materials used, the technology for production and the criteria for evaluation are discussed.


Dr. Kai-Christian Möller
Deputy Spokesperson Fraunhofer Battery Alliance, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft – Corporate Business Development and Marketing, Munich

Basic knowledge batteries:

  • General principles of the different battery chemistries with a focus on lithium-ion
  • Materials used such as anode and cathode materials, electrolytes, separators
  • Technology of the production of batteries up to the finished cell (battery cell technology)
  • Criteria for the evaluation of materials and battery chemistries
  • Most important applications (energy storage, traction battery in vehicles, etc.) of battery technology (battery systems)
  • Prospects and future opportunities of battery systems currently under research

On the topic

Without high-performance batteries, today’s mobile communication and entertainment would be unthinkable. The use of batteries in the field of electromobility is currently growing fastest, but stationary energy storage with batteries will also become increasingly important in the future. Batteries are also used in pedelecs and portable hand and garden tools.


Online Seminar, 08:00 to 16:00
