Advanced Test Methods for Isothermal and Adiabatic Battery Calorimetry

Advanced Test Methods for Isothermal and Adiabatic Battery Calorimetry


Wednesday 7th December 2022
3pm GMT UK | 10am EST USA | 4pm CET Europe

This presentation describes two main types of calorimetric techniques that can be used to carry out performance and safety testing on lithium-ion and other high-energy batteries.

The first half of the presentation introduces isothermal calorimetry; the various types of instruments, the method of operation and examples of data which can be obtained, including new developments from THT.

The second half of the presentation covers battery testing methods for the ARC® adiabatic calorimeter system. The theoretical background of the test method is described and recommended practices for various types of testing are discussed.

The presentation also mentions complementary test methods that can be integrated with calorimetry to provide even more useful analysis, and new developments in test equipment from THT.

This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

• Principles of isothermal and adiabatic calorimetry testing for high-energy batteries
• Advantages and limitations of these two methods
• Discussion of different test types and results
• Recommended testing practices, limitations, future developments

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