IEEE Buffalo Section Presentation – Battery 101 Seminar

April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Download a copy of the flyer here.

Joint with the Power Energy, Industrial Applications, Computer, Control Systems, Microwave Theory & Techniques, Antennas & Propagation, Engineering Management, Communications, Young Professionals Societies, Consultants Network, and Women In Engineering.

Thursday April 4, 2019 at 6 p.m.

PDH Credits Pending.  Must attend the seminar in person.

Battery Technology – The tutorial will discuss following topics:

  • Battery History – a brief enjoyable look at the development of storage batteries dating back to the 1700s right up to the 21st century.
  • Battery Types and Sizing Techniques – We examine how storage batteries are sized manually.  This includes demonstrations plotting load profiles, different technologies and how they respond, etc. this will enable you to understand how the battery manufacturer’s computer programs actually work.
  • Battery Charger Sizing – how we have been doing it and how we think it should be done in the future.
  • Battery charger specifying.
  • Protective devices in dc utility systems
  • Redundancy using steering diodes.


Compliance and Supervisory System:

  • NERC compliance as it relates to batteries.
  • Designing a supervisory system for utility DC applications.

Presentation location:
