ABOUT THIS TUTORIAL:
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 tutorial focuses on portable, stationary and automotive battery safety along the battery cycle life (acceptance, testing, assembly, use, transportation and disposal).
