Large Lithium Ion Battery Technology and Application
Tuesday, February 7 to Wednesday, February 8, 2012
AABC 2012. LLIBTA Symposium: Large Lithium Ion Battery Technology and Application – Session 2
Battery Safety and Durability Validation in Long-Life Applications
While battery performance and cost are receiving unprecedented attention, the safety, life, and reliability of the early installations will dictate market acceptance for Lithium-Ion-powered advanced vehicles. In this session, we will discuss the methodology and results of life and safety tests and modeling aimed at estimating battery life and verifying safety under ordinary and abusive conditions.
