Electrochemical Energy Storage (Hardcover)

Electrochemical Energy Storage By Slobodan Petrovic, Peter Kurzweil, Juergen Garche Cover Image


Electrochemical energy storage principles, applications, and best practices

This engineering textbook defines the taxonomy of electrochemical energy storage technologies, explains the principles, clarifies mechanisms, quantifies performance, and matches it with applications for electromobility and in renewable energy systems. With 330 equations and over 100 figures, this intensely analytical and at the same time thoroughly descriptive text is intended to help fully understand batteries, hydrogen, and fuel cells, while giving concise insight into electrochemical capacitors and flow batteries. Written by a team of recognized academics, Electrochemical Energy Storage meets the needs of experienced engineers as well as novices in the field through careful articulation of fundamental scientific principles interlaced with comprehensive practical analysis of batteries, fuel cells, and other technologies.

Coverage includes:

  • An introduction to electrochemistry
  • Battery performance factors
  • Accelerated lifetime testing
  • Lead-acid batteries
  • Nickel batteries
  • Silver batteries
  • Aqueous metal-air batteries
  • Lithium batteries
  • Hydrogen storage
