Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After the course the student will be able to
- name the most common electrochemical cells used for electrochemical energy conversion and storage
- know typical applcatons for the above-mentioned cells
- konw how electrochemically active materials function during electrochemical energy conversion and storage reactions
- apply electrochemical theories for understanding the behavior of the cells used for electrochemcial energy conversion and storage
- apply electrochemical analysis methods for investigation of electrochemcial energy conversion and storage cells

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
Different type of electrochemical cells used for electrochemical energy conversion and storage applications are presented. These include, for excample, batteries, fuel cells and hydrogen electrolyzer. The students get acquainted with the operation of these cells and effect of the electrochemically active material properties on their performance. Assembly of electrochemical energy cells is practisized and electrochemical analysis methods used to characterize them are introduced.
Assessment Methods and Criteria
Assgnements, laboratory experiments, seminar presentation, written reports

answers to home probles, two laboraotry work reports and seminar report & presentaion must be returned for evaluation to pass the course
laboratory works grade comprises of
- performance during the laboratory work
- report 1st and 2nd version
seminar presentation and seminar report
- peer evalaution of both
- individual points form each problem
Workload comprises of contact sessions, laboratory works, individual home works and team works.
