Industry's most anticipated event

JULY 2019 BATTERY SEMINAR

Conference fostering joint development efforts to advance energy storage solutions

Key Event Highlights:

  • Entire day of in-depth training by Exponent on battery design considerations, manufacturing best practices, thermal runaway events, failure analyses, battery management systems (BMS) etc.
  • Latest industry updates on use of energy storage systems in automotive applications by subject matter experts from major OEMs, Tier 1 system developers and battery makers
  • Latest industry updates on use of energy storage systems in large-scale stationary grid/utility storage applications by subject matter experts from major Utility companies, Tier 1 system developers and providers
  • Poster presentations
  • Complimentary meals and refreshments
  • Plenty of industry networking opportunities
  • Chance to win some cool prizes in a raffle Giveaway
  • An evening cocktails reception and an exclusive guided tour of Intertek facility

Event attendees will get an exclusive opportunity to tour the 100,000+ square-foot Intertek Battery Testing Center of Excellence to learn about the latest testing methods for batteries of all sizes from coin-cell through electric vehicles. Intertek performs a variety of tests out of this facility, to industry and global standards, including life-cycling, vibration, environmental, abuse and safety certifications. See this facility firsthand and ask questions to resident experts, and enjoy some light appetizers and beverages while networking with industry peers.

Cell Cycling and Stress Testing

Understanding long term cell performance and aging is critical for many applications.  Often times, judgments about long term performance have to be made in a relatively short period of time.  This session discusses a variety of tools to accelerate this testing including 24/7 cycling, elevated/sub ambient temperature testing, increased electrical load, and Arrhenius chemical modeling.

About Joel Forman - Exponent

Rachel Licht - Exponent

The Effects of Cycling Protocols on Internal Cell Structures

The natural expansion and contraction experienced by the active materials during cycling, as well as undesired side reactions, produce mechanical stresses in the cell winding that can lead to millimeter-scale mophological changes. In cylindrical cells, these stresses drive changes to the electrode layer curvature, which can ultimately result in core collapse. The layer curvature can […]

Lithium Ion Cell Response to Controlled Abuse

Cells integrated into consumer devices are subject to physical abuse. Such abuse can result in a variety of failure modes including capacity loss, swelling, or thermal runaway. This session discusses features observed as a result of controlled mechanical abuse to lithium-ion pouch cells. The subsequent electrical performance and failure modes observed will also be discussed.

About

Jeremiah Stepan - Exponent

Basic Electronic Protection for Lithium Ion Batteries

We will discuss the basic electronic designs used to protect lithium ion batteries against overcharge, overdischarge, overcurrent, undervoltage lockout, and operation outside their acceptable temperature range.  Aspects of the physical assembly considerations including circuit board layout, wiring harness design, and prevention of coupling heat from failure to additional cells in the pack will be discussed.

About Jeremiah Stepan - Exponent

Daren Slee - Exponent

Advanced Concepts for Lithium Ion Battery Electronics

We’ll discuss additional protection and data preservation methods used to further reduce the likelihood of li ion battery failure due to electrical or thermal stress and to preserve data for failure analysis in case of such events.  These include communications with the host, charger, and/or load, transmittal of critical data to external systems, telemetry, active […]

Hazards due to Thermal Runaway

Discussion of hazards due to thermal runaway failures in lithium-ion cells. We’ll discuss abuse testing (external heating, nail penetration, overcharge, etc) of lithium-ion cells and the quantification of gas species evolved as a result, including the attendant hazards (heat, explosions, toxic gases).
