Lithium Battery

Cell / Module Thermal Analysis For Electric / Hybrid Vehicle Applications

ARC Safety Testing

Thermal Abuse: Determine the maximum safe operating temperature of the cell and self-heating rate versus cell temperature

Overcharge: Tests can be carried out at different temperature and charge rates.

Short Circuit: Cell is shorted through a low impedance.

Nail Penetration: Automated nail penetration of the cell. Penetration speed, distance and test temperature can be specified.

Temperature Ramp: Establish cell decomposition temperature. Temperature ramp at up to 5°Cmin

ARC Performance Testing

Cell Heat Capacity: Measure from -30°C to maximum cell operating temperature.

Change/Discharge Heat Release: Quantify total thermal energy released from cell/module during different charge/discharge protocols.

Cycling with multiple thermocouple measurement: Establish areas of greatest heat release across the cell surface.
