  • Finding Your Place as the Industry Doubles Down on Electrified Vehicles

    Wednesday, January 16, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. EST USA

    Sales are moving forward, primarily due to the Tesla Model 3. A raft of new vehicles is arriving in 2019. Besides the plug-ins and battery electrics, hybrids (including 48V and stop/start micro hybrids) are coming.

    Is it a response to regulatory policy? Yes. Is regulatory policy unclear? Yes. Are some companies leaders and others laggards? Yes. Is the supply base critical to product development? Yes. Automakers are setting their own positions as they try to understand the threats and opportunities in their key global markets, even as the regulatory situation becomes more muddled.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Current Sales Trends Regarding EVs and Hybrids
    • EPA/NHTSA vs. The Automakers!?
    • California, EU, and China March Forward
    • Strategies in Near-, Medium-, and Long-Term for Supplier and Automaker

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

  • Advanced Battery EIS Tutorial Course 1/2: How to Ensure the Quality of Your EIS Measurements

    Wednesday, February 06, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is a technique that can be performed by controlling the potential or current. Controlling the current can limit the effect of the time variance of the system, but may also more easily lead the system to its non-linear behavior. We will show in this case how an adaptive EIS method can be used to circumvent this effect, and how we can only take the best from current control.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • How to choose between PEIS and GEIS ?
    • Non-linearity: the problems it brings and how to avoid them
    • A new groundbreaking technique to control amplitude in GEIS
    • EIS quality indicators

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

  • Advanced Battery EIS Tutorial Course 2/2: Monitoring Battery Resistance Parameters as a Function of SoH and SoC

    Wednesday, February 20, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    There is a need for indicators that can accurately reflect the State of Charge (SoC) and State of Health (SoH) of a battery as a single cell or in packs. Battery parameters related to resistance are excellent candidates for such indicators. AC and DC methods can be used to determine resistance. The DC method is fast and simple, but it gives a composite parameter, whereas the AC method is more advanced and gives complete parameters. After giving examples of data on single cells, we will present three-electrode, battery packs, and modules measurements.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Obtaining battery parameters via DC and AC methods
    • The pros and cons of each method
    • How these parameters can be used to indicate SoC and SoH
    • Data examples
    • Three-electrode single cell and measurements on battery pack or module

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

  • Battery Performance Testing – Pay Attention to the Details!

    Wednesday, March 13, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    The success of an energy storage project for stationary applications depends, for a large part, on how well the battery performs over time. Since there are little case studies showing real-world lifetime performance comparisons for various technologies the battery selection is primarily based on the performance data in a laboratory environment. Knowledge of the test conditions under which the data is obtained is critical to determine the suitability of the battery technology for the intended application. The influence of test conditions on the battery performance, and consequently on the battery selection process is discussed. The presentation presents real-world examples to emphasize on how subtle and often unspecified test conditions can affect the performance and lead to an un-optimized battery solution.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Battery selection process for stationary energy storage
    • Primary test conditions commonly presented
    • But…what’s hidden beneath the surface?
    • Examples of some subtle test conditions, if ignored, may lead to an un-optimized battery solution
    • How a good understanding of the product performance under different conditions can empower our customers with operating options

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

  • Adding Intelligent Battery Management to Lead-Acid Energy Storage Systems

    Wednesday, April 10, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    While lead-acid batteries are very resilient, that hardiness has often translated to operating approaches that can reduce cell life by well over 50%. In an energy storage system that contains dozens or hundreds of battery modules, the communications and control features provided by a battery management system can easily double or triple the life of lead-acid cells. Additional ESS operational cost reductions can be derived by reducing service calls via remote diagnostics enabled by the BMS. Uninterrupted system up time can also be realized through intelligent stack management. Join us for an exploration of how battery management systems can increase the value and competitiveness of lead-acid based solutions in large-scale energy storage applications.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • The role of battery management in large-scale energy storage
    • How a BMS can double or triple the life of lead-acid batteries
    • Replacing service calls with remote diagnostics
    • Creative multi-stack management to maximize system up-time
    • Regulatory compliance – understanding the impact of UL1973 on energy storage

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.
