This course is the first in a series of three Laboratory and Project Design courses. It consists of laboratory exercises to develop models for, and demonstrate the behaviour of energy storage devices operating under various conditions. The properties of energy storage devices would be utilised in a design project which is of use to industry. Students would be exposed to the recommended approach and procedure required to execute a design from a design brief, utilising project planning, time management and safe operating procedures. This course also includes a group project which aims to build team skills.
