    Methods and Instrumentation for Testing Li-ion Batteries, Materials to Modules

    We will walk through different phases of research from material development, characterization of cells and stacks, and advanced diagnostics on modules for Electric Vehicles. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to and speak with the innovators of the frequency response analyzer (Solatron Analytical) and the digital potentiostat (Princeton Applied Research).

    Features of instrumentation will be translated into benefits for users. Data from many different solutions will be presented; highlighted by the recently concluded UK-based consortium to rapidly grade the State-of-Health of NISSAN Leaf modules.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Electrochemical methods used to characterize Li-ion batteries:  materials, cells, stacks, and modules
    • Benefits of accuracy and resolution on performance tests of Energy Devices
    • Mapping of experiment techniques and test methods to instrument specifications
    • How AMETEK’s portfolio meets these similar but uniquely defined needs at different points of the value chain

    The Fundamentals of Battery Module and Pack Test

    The battery market is growing rapidly due to the acceleration of electrification in the automotive, aerospace and energy industries. In turn, batteries have become the pivotal component for electrifying automobiles, planes, trains and the grid.  Therefore, it’s imperative that today’s engineers, researchers, and managers understand the fundamentals of how to test batteries and the most productive approaches to ensure product performance, safety and time to market.

    Battery pack and module testing is becoming more critical than ever. Today, engineers face new challenges including increased complexity of the tests and set-ups, long development and test times, addressing safety requirements and avoiding hazards. Furthermore, testing to the application requires emulating real-world conditions by reacting to CAN, BMS and other communication protocols.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Industry trends impacting battery test
    • The fundamentals of battery module/pack testing
    • How to reduce time to market and improve engineering productivity
    • Next generation solutions for battery test

    Potentiostat and Battery Analyzer Design Fundamentals Explained for Users

    Potentiostats and Battery Analyzers have a critical role in evaluating how energy devices will perform. Understanding the basic design structure of instrumentation provides tools to users for informed decisions on experiments, analysis and products.

    AMETEK presents here on the different core functions on how signals are generated, cells are controlled and responses are measured.

    This content is presented from the perspective of a user and by the innovator of the digital potentiostat, Princeton Applied Research. Peek under the cover of the instrument that you rely on for your research and diagnostic programs. Most of the content will be general, so users of all instruments can find value. Learn the difference in your DACs and ADCs!

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Detail how potentiostats create signals, control cells and measure responses
    • Decode jargon and terminology used in instrument design for users
    • Explain which specifications relate to which functions
    • Show how to take advantage of the capabilities of your system
    • Use AMETEK’s portfolio as an example of different points in price-and-capability

    Calorimetric Measurements of Lithium-Ion Batteries Under Use and Abuse

    This presentation will describe two main types of calorimetric techniques that can be used to carry out performance and safety testing on batteries. These are isothermal calorimetry and adiabatic calorimetry.

    The first half of the presentation will introduce isothermal calorimetry; the various types of instruments, the method of operation, and examples of data that can be obtained. The second half of the presentation will cover battery testing methods for the ARC adiabatic calorimeter system. The theoretical background of the test method will be described, and recommended practice for various types of testing will be discussed.

    The presentation will also mention complementary test methods that can be integrated with calorimetry to provide even more useful analysis.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Principles of isothermal and adiabatic calorimetry for batteries
    • Advantages and limitations of these two methods
    • Discussion of applications and results
    • Recommended testing practices
