But how do batteries function? Why are there so many different types? And why have they found widespread application in everything from wrist watches to power stations? After completing this course, you will be able answer all of these questions and many more. You will learn:
- How batteries work (chemical reactions etc.).
- Battery terminology (Ah, specific gravity, voltaic cell etc.).
- Battery construction (plates, containers, jars etc.).
- Different battery designs and types (lead acid, nickel-cadmium, mercury etc.).
- Battery hazards (shorting, gas generation etc.).
- Battery operations (series, parallel, primary, secondary etc.).
- And a lot lot more!
The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning electric battery knowledge. Even if you already have some background electrical engineering knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (electrical engineering, automobile engineering, power engineering, oil and gas, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering etc.).
Interactive 3D models are used to show you the insides of several batteries and all their main parts. The course is packed with 2D images and high-quality written content. Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.
I hope to see you on the course!
