    Data-Driven Battery Product Development: Turn Battery Performance Into a Competitive Advantage

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

    Battery performance is a primary source of user dissatisfaction across a broad range of applications, and is the key bottleneck slowing the adoption of electric vehicles, renewable energy, and longer lasting, more powerful mobile electronics. Moreover, advances in battery development are continually slowed by inefficiencies and missed opportunities in analyzing the vast amounts of raw data generated during testing and operation, and the lack of effective tools to process and analyze this data.

    In this webinar, we’ll present approaches to eliminate these data bottlenecks and explain how to leverage your information to help you ship quality products faster using fewer resources while ensuring safety and reliability in the field, ultimately turning battery performance into a competitive advantage.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What bottlenecks are hindering the development of new batteries and battery powered systems?
    • What are your batteries trying to tell you? Expose additional value using techniques like differential capacity analysis
    • Case studies on data-driven product development at each stage of the battery lifecycle: from R&D to operation in the field

    Lithium Ion Capacitors – Combining Energy with Power

    FREE Webinar – JSR Micro, Inc. is a proud sponsor of this event.

    Lithium Ion Capacitors (LIC) are hybrids of electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) and lithium ion batteries (LIB). Combining the reversible non-Faradaic cathode from an EDLC and the reversible Faradaic anode from an LIB results in an ultra or super capacitor with significantly increased energy density, improved float performance and low self-discharge rates. Avoiding the lithium metal oxide cathodes from LIB’s improves the inherent safety and eliminates Cobalt content, however still combines aspects of energy & power of both cell types. The Faradaic intercalation/deintercalation reactions at the anode are capable of generating a significant amount of charge, while the non-Faradaic electrostatic storage of the electrical energy formed at the interface of the electrode and the electrolyte, known as an electric double layer, results in fast charge and discharge capabilities for hundreds of thousands, if not millions of cycles.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • What is an LIC? Technology Introduction
    • Key Benefits
    • Safety
    • EDLC vs LIC
    • Applications

    Preventing Thermal Runaway in Energy Storage Systems (ESS)

    From air transportation to electric vehicles and most recently “Hover Boards”, our industry is painfully aware of the over-discharge malfunctions associated with high-energy lithium-ion batteries, yet according to recent studies, nearly 70% of all Energy Storage Systems currently deployed are lithium-ion. Avoiding the pitfalls of utilizing greater energy density in larger installations is what will be discussed. Michelle will walk through the recent innovations from materials and process tracking in battery manufacturing to comprehensive control of cells in a fully deployed system. Incorporating lessons learned from recent failure investigations by the NTSB and FAA as well as new DoE mandates, Michelle will discuss how to achieve and in some areas surpass the new emerging safety certifications for a multi-megawatt energy storage system.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Making batteries safe or making safe batteries? (control & mitigation)
    • Cell manufacture tracking, certification and response
    – NTSB & DoE analysis and current situation
    • Incorporating advanced battery management systems (BMS)
    – Active cell dynamic balancing
    – Cell replacement (hot-swapping)
    – System reconfiguration
    – Energy density scalability

    Beyond Electrochemical Analysis – 2D to 4D Correlation of Microstructure and Chemistry in Li-ion Batteries

    Single imaging instruments as well as correlative microscopy workflows have demonstrated some unique abilities to support LIB research beyond electrochemical analysis methods. Light microscopy delivers insights about ablation effects & phase orientations in the active material, while scanning electron microscopy (SEM) reveals information about aging effects, nanometer cracks & the composition of the active material. Combining SEM with in-situ Raman spectroscopy extends the traditional SEM capabilities to organic and inorganic material identification. X-ray microscopy, furthermore, delivers 3D non-destructive imaging of full battery packs and localized high-resolution information, thus allowing the identification of regions of interest within the battery material volume. This presentation will demonstrate the application of these techniques to Li-ion battery research, including examples on anode, cathode, binder, and separator materials.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Introduction to available microscopic investigation techniques
    for Li-ion battery research:
    – Light Microscopy
    – Scanning Electron Microscopy
    – X-ray Microscopy
    – Raman Spectroscopy
    • Review of recent battery imaging studies in published literature
    • Case studies on using correlative microscopy to characterize battery performance & failure mechanisms
