The course familiarizes students with the basic principles of electrochemical sources and photovoltaic cells and systems. At the beginning, the emphasis is on understanding the basic principle using the equivalent circuits and mathematical description. In the next section, the basic types of electrochemical sources and their technical parameters are explored separately. Similarly, students become familiar with the technology of photovoltaic cells and modules. Another chapter is devoted to the basic applications such as solar-thermal. At the end of the course, students become familiar with economical and technological implications of the combination of solar systems and electrochemical sources.

A student has to obtain a credit before an examination
