Advances in Battery Performance and Safety Testing using Calorimetry

Advances in Battery Performance and Safety Testing using Calorimetry


Wednesday, December 06, 2023 | 10:00 A.M. EST USA | 3:00 P.M.GMT UK | 4:00 P.M CET Europe | 11.00 P.M China

In partnership with PlugVolt THT will present a free webinar coverig two main types of calorimetric techniques that can be used to carry out performance and safety testing on high-energy batteries.
The first half of the presentation introduces isothermal calorimetry; focused on the new IBCx system from Thermal Hazard Technology (THT). Method of operation, hardware overview and examples of data will be presented.
The second half of the presentation covers battery testing methods for the ARC adiabatic calorimeter system. The theoretical background of the test method will be described, and new developments to address blade-type batteries and high ampere-hour cells will be presented.
The presentation also mentions complementary test methods and optional modules that can be integrated with calorimetry to provide more useful analysis. For example; fast-tracking heaters, online gas analysis etc.
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
•    New product developments from THT to address market test requirements
•    Discussion of THT lab testing results

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

Matthew Stewart joined Thermal Hazard Technology UK in 2021 following his graduation from Swansea University with a master’s degree in chemical engineering.  In two years he has accrued a wealth of experience in battery testing and instrumentation.
In his role as Application Scientist, he helps to manage THT’s test lab and carries out cutting-edge testing on the latest energy-dense cell designs. Matt has worked with several of the UK’s leading motorsports, aviation and performance vehicle manufacturers.
Matt also travels the world and installs THT’s calorimeter systems in customer labs while providing in-depth training. This year alone he has carried out 10 successful installations at customers such as Lyten and NIOSH.
