    EIS for Energy Storage Tutorial Course 2/3 – How to Perform Good and Reliable EIS Measurements

    Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful technique, but it might be difficult to know which parameters to set as it really depends on the studied system. We give a few guidelines and tools needed to set the right amplitude, as well as other experimental parameters of interest that can increase the accuracy and the reliability of your measurement.

    A discussion will be given about when and whether to choose between potentio-controlled or galvano-controlled EIS.

    Finally, we will give recommendations on the conditions that the system under study should fulfill, especially time-variance, with some examples on the effect it has on impedance data and how to correct them.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • How to choose the amplitude of the input signal?
    • How to choose between PEIS and GEIS?
    • What do I need to check on my system?

    All Solid-State Batteries and the Future of Energy Storage

    The development of all solid-state batteries (ASSBs) has seen tremendous progress in recent years. However, several barriers still need to be overcome before ASSBs can be commercialized. These obstacles include poor interfacial stability, scalability challenges as well as the difficulty to precisely diagnose problems within the cell. Additionally, efforts to develop sustainable recyclability in lithium ion batteries are still lacking. In this webinar, we discuss SSEs chemistries and its implications on interfacial stability. We also cover the current state-of-the-art characterization techniques and evaluate future ASSB prototyping strategies. Finally, we hope to discuss potential strategies toward a sustainable ASSB recycling model to address the growing lithium ion battery waste problem.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Overview of solid-state batteries and solid-state electrolyte research
    • Importance of interfacial stability – correlate chemical, electrochemical and mechanical-induced reactions
    • Challenges for diagnosis / characterization of buried interfaces and lithium dendrites
    • Scalable fabrication considerations of commercialized all-solid-state batteries
    • Sustainability – Battery recycling concerns of Cost, Efficiency and the Environment

    The US 2020 Market for Electrified Vehicles: Forward, Backward, or Sideways?

    Sales of battery electrics and hybrids were up last year, while plug in hybrids dropped even as the number of entries increased. New products are coming in 2020 and beyond; will sales rise quickly enough to keep the market moving forward? Product, price, incentives, features, branding, and marketing all matter and will be discussed.

    For the second year in a row, we expect Tesla’s US sales to decline, although each category (e.g., hybrids, plug ins, battery electrics) will increase with the strongest increase in…regular and mild hybrids.

    Major changes in costs and technology, as well as the impact of suppliers in these areas, will be discussed, as well as expectations for the near-term.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Review of 2019 Sales with a 2020 Forecast
    • How Regulation in the US and Beyond Is Moving the Market
    • Regulation Matters, But Company Strategies Often Matter More
    • Is There a Gap Between Strategy and Reality?
    • The Role of Suppliers and Technology

    BIS Tutorial Course 1/3: Introducing Battery Intelligence Systems (BIS)

    FREE Webinar – Voltaiq is a proud sponsor of this event.

    While the industry is familiar with the battery and its BMS (battery management system), very few are aware of the critical need for a missing third layer, the Battery Intelligence System (BIS) needed to enable the leap in battery yield, energy density, and lifetime the industry is calling for.

    Battery Intelligence Systems are needed to leverage the latent value sitting in data that companies are collecting today, including but not limited to: data generated in battery factories in Asia, product OEMs around the globe, and ‘data lakes’ collecting data from systems in the field.

    Your organization already has the building blocks to enable BIS. In this webinar we’ll show you the benefits of unlocking the value of your battery data.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • The need for Battery Intelligence
    • State of the industry: insufficient resources to meet aggressive electrification goals
    • State of data today: “Treating it like a mushroom and watching it grow”
    • Automation of standard analyses
    • Traceability with Battery Digital Twins

    BIS Tutorial Course 2/3: Battery Intelligence in Research and Development (R&D)

    FREE Webinar – Voltaiq is a proud sponsor of this event.

    The development of new, improved battery systems is slowed by the long test times required to validate battery cycle life — three to six months for consumer electronics and multiple years for long-life applications such as transportation and energy storage.

    In this webinar, we’ll review how Battery Intelligence Systems (BIS) can enable accelerated development cycles and time to market. BIS can not only speed development cycles with automated background analytics; it can also unlock new insights with enhanced analytical techniques, helping you make better decisions faster.

    This webinar will focus on specific end-uses including fast-charge algorithm development, BMS algorithms and new materials development, and how BIS can accelerate optimization and new product introduction.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • The state of the battery development ecosystem
    • The design of experiments (DoE) to optimize performance
    • Dramatic changes in workflow with Battery Intelligence System (BIS) Software
    • Enhanced analytics examples including differential capacity analysis (dQ/dV vs V) and on-line correlative analysis
    • BIS enabled faster development cycles and time to market

    BIS Tutorial Course 3/3: Battery Intelligence in New Product Introduction (NPI) for Transportation and Consumer Electronics

    FREE Webinar – Voltaiq is a proud sponsor of this event.

    OEMs are faced with an ever growing list of challenges when designing batteries into their systems, from long qualification time, to increasingly complex systems and the lack of qualified battery engineers.

    In this webinar, we’ll review the battery and systems qualification process for transportation and consumer electronics, including specific reference performance tests such as hybrid pulse power characterization (HPPC), that are used for BMS development.

    We’ll then shift into how Battery Intelligence Systems (BIS) can both accelerate time to market for New Product Introduction (NPI), and can surface deeper insights about variability in batteries and packs to increase range, lower costs, and improve reliability.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • The state of OEM new product introduction (NPI)
    • Battery and system qualification
    • BMS development and hybrid pulse power characterization (HPPC)
    • Ensuring time to market for NPI
    • Extending range and lifetime with component variability assessment

    Energy Storage – A Key Enabler for Adoption of Renewables in India

    The new era of the energy sector encircles around alternate sources of energy, the truth in the phrase has now been well understood and accepted by even the toughest critic of change.The world has become aware and has put its faith in renewables. But with increase of renewables in grid what also creeps in is variability, which makes the grid inertia go down. The call of the day is to make renewables responsible, one potential way of the same is through combining storage with renewables. But how viable is storage and to what extent can it stop the variability brought to the grid by renewables. This paper discusses on the storage potentials, their types, present challenges and way forward.
