Chair of Electrical Energy Storage Technology - EES

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Jossen

The tasks of the Chair

The chair deals with electrical energy storages, mainly with rechargeable batteries. Along with lithium ion batteries, also classical systems such as lead batteries and alkaline cells play an important part. Furthermore, researches are conducted into future systems, for example: metal-air, redox flow and high-temperature batteries.

  • Prototyping of solitary cells (thermal-electrical)
  • Prototyping of batterie systems
  • Prototyping of interconnected batteries including statistical observation
  • Researching and prototyping durability of batteries
  • Battery management through electrical metrology and interfacing for integrational purpose
  • Thermal battery management
  • Safety management for large batteries
  • Developing methods defining battery conditions and charging levels
  • New charging methods and fast-charging processes
  • Optimising for industrial strategies to lower costs, long-lasting durability and high efficiency

The department works closely with other departments at the TUM, for instance ‚Technical Electro-Chemistry‘, ‚Physics‘ and ‚Automotive Engineering‘.

Further information about our research subjects can be found in the Research tab.



10th anniversary of the Chair of Electrical Energy Storage Technology

The Chair of Electrical Energy Storage Technology exists now for 10 years.
Therefore we offer an overview over the research, the projects and the tasks of the Chair in a revised brochure about the Chair.
