THT awarded funding as part of the Government's Faraday Challenge

THT in partnership with Imperial College London have been awarded funding from Innovate UK, as part of the Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund: The Faraday Challenge

THT is honoured to have their project selected as part of the Innovation - feasibility studies category. Winners will share £10 million funding to work on innovation projects to design, develop and manufacture batteries for the electrification of vehicles.

The THT will be working with Imperial College to develop an Isothermal Control Platform (ICP) for the Precise Regulation of Battery Temperatures using Multiple Zone Control.

Webinar: Determination of Battery Safety and Performance Parameters using Adiabatic and Isothermal Calorimetry

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 | 10:00 A.M. EST USA | 3:00 P.M. GMT UK - REGISTER NOW

This presentation describes two main types of calorimetry which can be used to carry out safety and performance testing on batteries. Isothermal calorimeters allow for direct heat measurement on cells during use, while adiabatic calorimeters can measure heat released from batteries during thermal runaway.

Calorimetry can serve as a quantitative scientific method for evaluation of battery safety but it requires appropriate instrumentation. The principles of operation of both types of calorimeters are described along with specific applications within the field of battery testing.

A combination of both technics allows for detailed thermal characterization of lithium-ion and other rechargeable cells, and differences due to chemistry, cell design, cell age, state of charge and cell size can be evaluated.

This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

• The principles of adiabatic and isothermal calorimetry
• How calorimetry can be used in battery testing
• Parameters established by adiabatic safety testing
• Parameters established by isothermal performance testing
• Pressure measurement and gas collection
