    Battery Performance Testing – Pay Attention to the Details!

    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

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

    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

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

    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
