Thermal runaway and thermal propagation of lithium ion batteries

Thermal runaway and thermal propagation, i.e. the propagation of a thermal incident from cell to cell inside a battery, are part of the most significant safety challenges in the use of lithium ion batteries as it occurs e.g. in the growing segment of electromobility. In the workshop, fundamentals of thermal runaway and thermal propagation in lithium ion batteries are discussed. In addition, challenges and results from battery safety tests will be presented as well as possible approaches for battery performance and safety simulation. Furthermore, possibilities of fault detection are discussed and their advantages and limitations are shown. The seminar is completed by a discussion of safety in general like functional safety concepts by ISO 262621:2019 with respect to battery technology and the presentation of laws and standards concerning battery safety.

Next Generation Batteries: Opportunities and Challenges

The great potential with regard to increasing energy density and other performance characteristics, but also the limits of the respective battery types, will be discussed using current literature and based on the experience of the speakers in this subject area. Participants will gain basic knowledge about the functionality and development trends of new battery systems.
