    EIS for Energy Storage Tutorial Course 2/3 – How to Perform Good and Reliable EIS Measurements

    Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful technique, but it might be difficult to know which parameters to set as it really depends on the studied system. We give a few guidelines and tools needed to set the right amplitude, as well as other experimental parameters of interest that can increase the accuracy and the reliability of your measurement.

    A discussion will be given about when and whether to choose between potentio-controlled or galvano-controlled EIS.

    Finally, we will give recommendations on the conditions that the system under study should fulfill, especially time-variance, with some examples on the effect it has on impedance data and how to correct them.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • How to choose the amplitude of the input signal?
    • How to choose between PEIS and GEIS?
    • What do I need to check on my system?

    Battery Qualification 101

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

    Batteries are the most complex and failure prone components in modern devices. To mitigate risks, companies extensively qualify battery cells and packs, a time consuming and expensive process that can lead to delays in product launch if issues are surfaced. Effectively managing time, personnel, and equipment is critical to meeting deadlines while also ensuring products meet safety and performance requirements.

    In this webinar, we’ll provide an introduction to battery qualification and show interactive demonstrations of performance qualifications. We’ll also highlight best practices and value-added analytics to ensure that quality issues are surfaced soon as possible so that product release timelines are met.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Discuss the need to qualify batteries
    •  Discuss the different types of battery qualification
    •  Introduction to common performance qualifications — rate capability and cycle life among others
    • Interactive analysis demonstration, first using traditional tools and then using a Battery Intelligence System
    •  Best practices to ensure product release timelines are met

    Battery Selection Tutorial Course 1/3: Selecting your Cell and Cell Manufacturer(s)

    After designing your product, you need to ensure the battery with which you are operating it will ensure the right performance and lifetime. When deciding this, narrowing down which chemistry (e.g. Li-ion, lithium primary, NiMH, etc.) best fits your product and which form factor are some of the first steps. Choosing a cell design (high-power vs. high-energy, for example) is another step and finally, finding the right cell manufacturer to fabricate your cells and packs. This webinar is the first in a three-part series on designing the right battery for your product. It will cover many of the key differences in chemistries, form factors, and cell designs and other best practices.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Choosing the right chemistry for your application
    • Choosing the right form factor
    • Choosing cell designs (e.g. high power vs. high-energy)

    Battery Selection Tutorial Course 2/3: Beyond the Standards: Device-Specific Testing

    After choosing your cell and manufacturer (Part 1 of this series), most likely, they will have passed the tests of various standards organizations. However, depending on your operating environment, you may need to go above and beyond the baseline to ensure your product operates as intended. This webinar is Part 2 in a three-part series and will review a variety of factors to consider in your device-specific testing, including designing tests to predict the outcomes of various user-abuse scenarios, understanding the mechanisms of gas generation, capacity retention based on different voltage windows, and what happens if you need to cycle your cells outside of their operating range (outside in an Arizona summer or Minnesota winter, for example).

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • User-abuse scenarios to prevent against
    • Causes and effects of various gas generation mechanisms
    • Voltage limits
