Join us at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference in Tokyo, Japan from October 28th-31st, where Vidyu Challa, Consulting Manager at ANSYS Inc., will be presenting Li-Ion Cell Design and Manufacturing: Processes, Equipment and Quality Control.
Li-Ion Cell Design and Manufacturing: Processes, Equipment and Quality Control
The rising demand for Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications makes battery power an absolute necessity. However, reports about lithium-ion batteries exploding and catching fire continue to draw the public’s attention. How do you balance the need for power, size, cost, and time-to-market, while still avoiding being the lead story on the evening news? Is it enough to qualify a cell manufacturer according to industry standards? The answer is that the majority of compliance-based testing is related to abuse tolerance. However, the vast majority of field failures do not occur under abuse scenarios, but happen under normal operating conditions due to manufacturing flaws or design and system tolerance issues that cause internal shorts. Internal shorts are unfortunately not mitigated by safety electronics.
