Afternoon Tutorial | 15:00 - 17:00
TUT1: The Rechargeable Battery Market: Value Chain and Main Trends 2018 - 2028
This tutorial will present the 10-year automotive market forecasts from Avicenne and other analysts (micro|Hybrid|P-HEV|EV). Other coverage will include car makers’ strategies and advanced energy storage (advanced lead acid|supercap|NiMH|LIB). Additionally, LIB design for P-HEV & EV markets (cylindrical, prismatic, pouch|wounded, stacked, Z fold cells) and LIB cell, module & pack cost structure 2018-2028 will be discussed.

TUT4: 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 shouldn’t forget the safety - as an example the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery safety case. Unfortunately, we face daily safety events with injuries and severe damage. This workshop 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.

TUT5: Lithium-Ion Cell Design
This session introduces lithium-ion cell design with a focus on design trade-offs for energy and power. First, an overview of lithium-ion cell technology is provided including cell types and cost trends. Then, an in-depth discussion of the components (positives, negatives, electrolytes, separators, collectors, packages), including next-gen materials like silicon, followed by presentations on design principles (tab effect, balancing, porous electrode design), aging, and abuse.
