    Battery Intelligence in Action – How to Launch an EV

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

    Launching a new EV platform is a high-stakes game, where any problems encountered during battery pack development can severely jeopardize target ship dates. Developing an EV battery pack is a lengthy process comprising multiple interconnected stages that span from choosing the right cell to integrating the full pack into the vehicle. Each of these stages is complex and involves function-specific battery testing and analysis. This webinar will walk through each stage of EV pack development in detail, and will highlight how an integrated Battery Intelligence platform can drive an on-time launch and ensure quality and traceability, while minimizing risk throughout the vehicle lifecycle.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Discuss how the battery is the most complex and costly component in the development of an EV, and is the component most likely to delay launch
    • Review the complex multi-step process required to develop an EV pack and demystify pack development from cell selection through vehicle integration
    • Showcase an interactive demonstration of key analytics

    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

    Advanced Techniques For Addressing Issues in Battery Safety and Performance Using Adiabatic Calorimetry

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

    Adiabatic calorimetry is a widely utilized technique within the field of battery safety research. The method has been adapted from the chemical industry to address a significant range of safety and performance tests on battery components, cells and even modules.

    Although a number of different battery tests may be employed using the ARC, interpretation of results is not always straightforward. Some of the principles which apply to ARC chemical testing do not translate directly to battery testing due to the variable nature of samples.

    This presentation describes both the advantages and limitations of ARC testing on batteries and how the ARC test can be adapted to address different questions in battery research as well as quality control.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • The principles of adiabatic calorimetry (ARC)
    • How calorimetry can be used in battery testing
    • What we learn from battery testing by calorimetry
