    Lithium Ion Capacitors – Combining Energy with Power

    FREE Webinar – JSR Micro, Inc. is a proud sponsor of this event.

    Lithium Ion Capacitors (LIC) are hybrids of electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) and lithium ion batteries (LIB). Combining the reversible non-Faradaic cathode from an EDLC and the reversible Faradaic anode from an LIB results in an ultra or super capacitor with significantly increased energy density, improved float performance and low self-discharge rates. Avoiding the lithium metal oxide cathodes from LIB’s improves the inherent safety and eliminates Cobalt content, however still combines aspects of energy & power of both cell types. The Faradaic intercalation/deintercalation reactions at the anode are capable of generating a significant amount of charge, while the non-Faradaic electrostatic storage of the electrical energy formed at the interface of the electrode and the electrolyte, known as an electric double layer, results in fast charge and discharge capabilities for hundreds of thousands, if not millions of cycles.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What is an LIC? Technology Introduction
    • Key Benefits
    • Safety
    • EDLC vs LIC
    • Applications

    Data-Driven Battery Product Development: Turn Battery Performance Into a Competitive Advantage

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

    Battery performance is a primary source of user dissatisfaction across a broad range of applications, and is the key bottleneck slowing the adoption of electric vehicles, renewable energy, and longer lasting, more powerful mobile electronics. Moreover, advances in battery development are continually slowed by inefficiencies and missed opportunities in analyzing the vast amounts of raw data generated during testing and operation, and the lack of effective tools to process and analyze this data.

    In this webinar, we’ll present approaches to eliminate these data bottlenecks and explain how to leverage your information to help you ship quality products faster using fewer resources while ensuring safety and reliability in the field, ultimately turning battery performance into a competitive advantage.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What bottlenecks are hindering the development of new batteries and battery powered systems?
    • What are your batteries trying to tell you? Expose additional value using techniques like differential capacity analysis
    • Case studies on data-driven product development at each stage of the battery lifecycle: from R&D to operation in the field

    Addressing Engineering Challenges of Vehicle Electrification With Model-Based Systems Engineering

    The concern for the environment and energy savings is changing the way we think about transportation. Wide spreading vehicle electrification – not only through Electric Vehicles (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV), but also electrification in conventional vehicles – has become a common trend of the industry and the upcoming battlefield to install new leading positions. Accounting for costs, reliability, safety, performance, customer acceptance, infrastructure and design process makes manufacturers and suppliers facing new engineering challenges that need to be addressed in a very short time-frame.

    Technologies used for electrification are causing a growing complexity in systems and components, and producing vehicles designed right, first, at reasonable costs make the implementation of collaborative mechatronic system simulation a decisive and mandatory step in the engineering process.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What are the global trends and challenges of vehicle electrification?
    • What are the available technologies for reducing CO2 emissions?
    • What are the benefits of stop & start and regenerative braking systems?
    • How to characterize battery and optimize its thermal management?
    • How do energy storage architectures impact battery aging?

    Characterizing Performance and Determining Reliability of Batteries for Medical Applications

    As the number and variety of battery powered devices used in medical applications grows, batteries are playing an ever more important role in determining the reliability of these devices. Unlike the portable consumer electronics industry where high unit volumes can justify the design and manufacturing of custom batteries, the medical device industry must often utilize standard, off-the-shelf batteries for their devices. Even when the production of custom batteries is justified, few battery manufacturers appreciate the level of quality and reliability that is required by the medical device industry.

    In this webinar we will look at how to quantify the performance characteristics of batteries in a way that allows direct comparisons to be made between various vendors, form factors and chemistries. Case studies will be presented to demonstrate common mistakes made in battery selection and use, and methods for conducting accelerated aging studies will be discussed. When properly conducted, such aging studies can be used to identify potential reliability issues, monitor the manufacturing quality of the batteries and serve as a tool to aid in the selection and qualification of various battery vendors.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What do you need to know that is not on the specification sheets?
    • How do you make apples-to-apples performance comparisons between different battery types?
    • When is impedance and/or capacity matching important in multi-cell configurations?
    • How can quality be compared between vendors?
    • How can battery longevity be predicted in specific applications?
