    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 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

    Battery Selection Tutorial Course 3/3: Integrating Your Battery Into Your Product – Designing for Worst-Case Scenarios

    The last part in Exponent’s three-part series, this webinar will focus on the finished product from the viewpoint of the battery. How can you best protect your battery within your device? Is your battery going to be user-replaceable? If you’re creating multi-cell packs, how should they be separated from (yet still connected to) each other? Should a thermal event occur, how can you prevent that from cascading through the whole pack? This webinar will help to answer many of those questions, and discuss design questions to help safeguard your battery pack throughout its entire lifecycle.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Creating multi-cell packs
    • Containing thermal runaway events

    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

BIS can not only speed development cycles with automated background analytics; it can also unlock new insights with enhanced analytical techniques, helping you make better decisions faster.

    This webinar will focus on specific end-uses including fast-charge algorithm development, BMS algorithms and new materials development, and how BIS can accelerate optimization and new product introduction.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • The state of the battery development ecosystem
    • The design of experiments (DoE) to optimize performance
    • Dramatic changes in workflow with Battery Intelligence System (BIS) Software

    BIS Tutorial Course 3/3: Battery Intelligence in New Product Introduction (NPI) for Transportation and Consumer Electronics

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

    OEMs are faced with an ever growing list of challenges when designing batteries into their systems, from long qualification time, to increasingly complex systems and the lack of qualified battery engineers.

    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
    • Pressure measurement and gas collection during thermal runaway
    • Advanced testing techniques in adiabatic battery calorimetry
