State-of-the-art battery characterization: challenges and opportunities (Webinar)

Battery characterization is the foundation for the design and development of any battery energy storage system and is specifically important for inspection, validation, end-of-line testing, pack assembly, and BMS design purposes.

In this free webinar, presented by Bitrode at our Spring Virtual Conference (April 17-20, 2023), we will introduce some of the industry standard protocols used to characterize battery performance and aging behavior. We will then review the testing equipment used in this stage of battery development and discuss how Bitrode Digital CyclerTM (BTDCTM), which takes advantage of advancements in power electronics, controls, and communications in its design can be considered as the ideal solution for battery characterization and testing.

The Goldilocks Problem: Balancing Internal Forces Within An EV Battery Module Or Pack

Li-ion cells often have strong opinions about their clamping pressures, wanting neither too hard, nor too soft. It’s a classic “Goldilocks problem,” with a sweet spot that balances electrochemical performance, cell life, and mechanical retention. Goldilocks also changes her mind, often, as the cells breathe and swell through a lifetime of usage. When designing modules and/or packs, engineers must not only strike this balance at beginning of life, but also over the life of the vehicle, while also protect against thermal runaway.

In this session, presented by Aspen Aerogel, we will explore factors battery engineers need to consider when optimizing performance while meeting safety requirements. Attendees will develop an understanding of how cell-to-cell barriers influence mechanical design. We will also review simplified models for a balanced mechanical design.
