Adiabatic Calorimetry for Performance and Safety Testing of Li-Ion Batteries

Adiabatic Calorimetry for Performance and Safety Testing of Li-Ion Batteries


Wednesday 10th Novemeber 2021
3pm GMT UK | 10am EST USA | 4pm CET Europe

This presentation describes how Accelerating Rate Calorimetry (ARC®) is the adiabatic method of choice to carry out performance and safety testing on Li-ion batteries. This technique is widely used within the industry to understand the thermal characteristics of cells.

The theoretical background of the technique is described, with recommendations made across different testing types. Examples are shown across multiple form factors, from coin cells up to small modules.

Test methods discussed include decomposition tests, nail penetration, overcharge, short circuit, infrared, optical, gas generation and analysis, heat capacity and cycling.

This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

• Principle of adiabatic calorimetry for batteries 
• Advantages of this method
• Discussion of applications and results 
• Recommended testing practices

A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

A PDF copy and recording of the presentation will be sent to all registered delegates after the event.
