    Best Practices for EV Cell Testing

    In this webinar, we will begin with an overview of the typical structure of automotive EV programs, along with how the APQP phase gate process aligns to the key milestones of Automotive Component Verification (DVP & PVP) validation plans. Key considerations for testing progress tracking, reporting and the range of different tools and strategies will be discussed. This includes the importance of rigorous test procedure definition and equipment set-up verification to ensure highest quality data and reporting. A review the relevant standards will be presented along with examples of OEM specific testing areas. We conclude with a summary of the best practices our team has developed thru our EV testing programs conducted at Energy Assurance LLC’s Hopkinton test facility.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Typical EV program structure overview and APQP process
    • Effective reporting and communication strategies
    • Procedure definition and development
    • Ensuring proper test set-up preparation and execution
    • EV relevant testing standards and customer specific testing

    High-Throughput Battery Materials Analysis for Gigafactories

    The Gigafactory model requires reliable materials characterization to achieve the promised efficiencies of vertical integration. Unifying the synthesis of battery materials, processing such as dispersion into inks, and production of cells is the first step to high-volume production and reducing vulnerability to supply chain problems. These steps benefit from automated high-throughput materials analysis that can be used for process control. This webinar will discuss in-line and at-line instrumentation combined with automated analyses from microstructural (particle size with laser diffraction) to chemical (stoichiometry with XRF) to atomic level (Li/Ni site mixing with XRD).

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • In-line and at-line materials characterization and automated analyses
    • Asset management to maximum uptime
    • At-line X-ray diffraction analysis of lattice parameters and Li/Ni site mixing
    • At-line X-ray fluorescence analysis to quantify Ni-Mn-Co stoichiometry
    • In-line particle size analysis to control milling during dispersion
