TUT5: Battery Safety and Abuse Tolerance Validation

Batteries have become daily use components for many applications. New growing segments like EV and grid storage batteries extend the traditional ordinary battery applications. In the race for energy density, we should not forget the safety (e.g., the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery safety case). Unfortunately, we face daily safety events with injuries and severe damage. This tutorial focuses on portable, stationary and automotive battery safety along the battery cycle life (acceptance, testing, assembly, use, transportation and disposal). The training incorporates Shmuel De-Leon’s and other experiences on battery safety representing over 26 years of work in the field. The motivation behind the training is to provide attendees with the knowledge needed to safely handle the batteries in their organization and to support reduction in safety events.
