Calorimetric Measurements of Lithium-Ion Batteries Under Use and Abuse

Calorimetric Measurements of Lithium-Ion Batteries Under Use and Abuse


Tuesday 10th November 2020
3:00pm GMT UK | 10:00am EST USA

Join us for a free webinar in association with PlugVolt. This presentation will describe two main types of calorimetric techniques that can be used to carry out performance and safety testing on batteries. These are isothermal calorimetry and adiabatic calorimetry.

The first half of the presentation will introduce isothermal calorimetry; the various types of instruments, the method of operation, and examples of data that can be obtained. The second half of the presentation will cover battery testing methods for the ARC adiabatic calorimeter system. The theoretical background of the test method will be described, and recommended practice for various types of testing will be discussed.

The presentation will also mention complementary test methods that can be integrated with calorimetry to provide even more useful analysis.

This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

• Principles of isothermal and adiabatic calorimetry for batteries 
• Advantages and limitations of these two methods
• Discussion of applications and results
• Recommended testing practices

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