Symposium A06: Battery Safety and Failure Modes
Symposium Focus: Energy storage needs for advanced industrial and consumer electronics devices demand increasingly higher lithium-ion battery (LIB) specific energy and power densities. Increased LIB functionality via higher specific energy, extremely fast charging, and sophisticated management systems increases the need for a better understanding of LIB safety.
The goal of this symposium is to address battery safety from the perspective of cell and battery design, novel materials engineering, modelling, and diagnostics. Better understanding of battery safety and failure modes enables cell and system design improvements, performance enhancements and facilitates regulatory approvals of advanced LIB power systems.
Invited Speakers: Recognized experts leading research and development efforts in the broad field of battery safety have been invited from various academic, national laboratory, and industry organizations.
Symposium Sponsorship: Sponsored by Thermal Hazard Technology, this symposium includes a special session on advanced calorimetric techniques for investigating LIB safety.
