    DER Tutorial Course 2/3: Battery Warranty Tracking for Stationary Energy Storage

    In the energy storage industry, battery warranties are based on the combination of a utilization profile and the responsible management of batteries within specified tolerances. Nuvation Energy CEO Michael Worry will explore how energy storage system providers and users can track battery utilization to ensure adherence to warranty parameters, and to proactively identify and resolve performance deviations that can negatively impact warranty claim outcomes.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Creating the use-case specific battery warranty
    • Energy storage system design for battery life and cycle count targets
    • Battery warranty tracking technologies
    • Data capture vs. compliance reporting

    DER Tutorial Course 3/3: Battery State of Health in Energy Storage Systems

    State of Health (SOH) is a widely used and often misunderstood term within the energy storage industry. What does it mean to say that a battery is at 90% SOH? How does battery SOH impact the performance of an energy storage system used for a particular application? Stefan Janhunen, Principal Software Architect at Nuvation Energy, will explore common industry definitions and misconceptions surrounding State of Health and will take a deeper dive into the fundamental metrics of battery health that impact overall energy storage system performance.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What is State of Health and how is it defined?
    • The most common metrics used to measure battery performance and health
    • The effects of battery degradation on energy storage system performance
    • Moving towards an energy storage system perspective on State of Health

    International Compliance for Small Portable Li Ion Batteries in 2021

    Does the Li Ion battery requirement for different countries confuse you? We will focus on the international requirements applied to small format portable Li Ion batteries. This will be an in-depth review of countries with mandatory requirements as well as voluntary or customer driven requirements. Every country has some very specific items that make them unique and these differences can lead to delays and potential changes in design if not understood ahead of time. We will review these gotcha items for each country we review. Finally, we will take a look at what is on the horizon for changes to standards and requirements globally.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Definition of scope – portable, small format Li ion batteries
    • Shipping regulations overview
    • Mandatory requirements
    • Voluntary or other requirements
    • Upcoming changes

    Characterizing Catalytic Inks for Fuel Cells

    Catalytic inks are key components when balancing cost, performance, and durability of proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC’s). Scaling up PEMFC production requires careful control of the ink to produce uniform electrode layers that use as little precious metal catalyst as possible. Particle size and dispersion critically impact the behavior of the ink and resulting performance of the electrode layers. X-ray diffraction, laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering, and X-ray fluorescence are characterization techniques with proven ability to scale-up in support of mass production that, when combined, provide a comprehensive overview of the particles in catalytic ink mixtures.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • X-Ray Diffraction
    • Laser Diffraction
    • X-Ray Fluorescence
    • Dynamic Light Scattering

    These techniques each probe a different size regime and, when combined, provide a comprehensive overview of the particles in the catalytic ink mixture.
