Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
Industry leaders from around the world will convene in Boston, MA for the Knowledge Foundation’s 2nd Next Generation Batteries 2013 conference which will take place at the Hilton Boston Back Bay on April 30 – May 1. One of the many anticipated presentations will include Erik Spec, of TÜV SÜD Canada as he present “A Data Based Analysis of Overcharge Abuse of Lithium Ion Cells.”
“A Data Based Analysis of Overcharge Abuse of Lithium Ion Cells”
Erik Spec, of TÜV SÜD Canada
TÜV SÜD, a global third party provider of product testing and certification services, has performed SAE, USABC and other abuse tests on hundreds of large format lithium ion cells to gauge the robustness of cells. This presentation covers the overcharge behavior of over 160 cells of different formats, chemistries, capacities, test environments and test parameters. All of the data is from tests performed by TÜV SÜD since 2010. The data has been organized to show how this population of cells has responded in terms of Hazard Severity Level (HSL) and maximum temperature in relation to capacity, charge rate, physical constraint and other factors. This presentation will be given by Eric Sapc, of TÜV SÜD Canada at Next Generation Batteries 2013.
Next Generation Batteries 2013 program topics will include:
•New chemistries & materials to increase energy/power & reduce cost
•Lithium vs. non-lithium: how much power and energy is enough?
•The OEM perspective – the application driven development of novel battery systems-by-design
•Novel materials for battery architectures: graphene & silicon, magnesium & zinc, manganese & vanadium
•Lithium air / lithium oxygen
•Leading role of nanomaterials in battery technology breakthroughs
•Advances in flow batteries
•Thin film batteries
•Highly flexible printed batteries / Paper batteries
•From novel materials and components to systems architecture and integration
•Meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power& energy, cost and safety
•Super-, ultra, and pseudo capacitors in hybrid battery devices
•Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance
