Emerging Grid Energy Storage Market Opportunities
Our electricity grid is the world largest supply chain without a warehouse. The fulfillment of peak demand instantaneously with power generation results in a system that is over-built and under-utilized, as seen by the less that 50 percent utilization of the most efficient power plant. Increased use of non-load following power generation like wind and solar, combined with the need to replace the aging grid infrastructure is creating an opportunity for energy storage. Numerous products and applications are being developed for energy storage on the electricity grid. We will discuss these market opportunities, including product requirement, value and policy.

An Application Centric, Targeted Approach to Li-Ion Battery Product Development
As military and consumer energy requirements escalate, effective material/performance matching is vital to meet market demands. Commercial Li-Ion batteries (LIB) are typically limited to a handful of anode/cathode material combinations that satisfy mass market needs. Where high power, high specific energy and/or wide temperature range are essential, these applications can benefit from a more targeted material system. Global research and development efforts for the past two decades have identified dozens of anode/cathode materials for LIB which must be utilized for an application centric targeted approach to product development.  This presentation will highlight potential technologies/application combinations for a wide variety of military and consumer needs.

Calorimetry's Role in the Design of High Performance Li-Ion Batteries
Calorimetry plays a useful role throughout the development process.  Thermal analysis along with calorimetry is used in the design and qualification of materials used in the construction of a cell.  For both the small and very large cells and packs, isothermal calorimetry can provide information that can be used in thermal management, lifetime studies and cell performance. Understanding the strengths and weakness of the different techniques is key for correct application of these methods in the development and testing process.

Connecting Batteries in Parallel: Unexpected Effects And Solutions
In the days of lead acid we got away with connecting batteries in parallel without a second thought. However, doing so with today's large Li-Ion battery packs can have unforeseen and counter-intuitive consequences: extreme and potentially damaging inrush currents, scrambled SOC estimates and decreased reliability instead of redundancy. We'll look at the instant of initial contact between parallel batteries and at the surprising effect of a weak cell in one of many parallel strings. We'll explore the advantages of paralleling cells directly, a BMS that tracks SOC as hot-swap batteries are inserted and removed and safe ways to initially connect batteries in parallel.

There is inadequate knowledge regarding long-term aging processes in batteries envisioned for electric drive vehicles (EDVs), particularly in cases of high variability in both usage patterns and environmental conditions. To address this need, this presentation covers theoretical and mathematical developments for evaluating the effects from an arbitrary aging condition that is allowed to vary over time. The capability is demonstrated with Li-Ion cells, wherein prognostic tools are used to assess long-term aging trends for cells at use in a number of major US cities, as well as to evaluate the benefit of thermal management scenarios to prolong cell life.

Communication Errors Caused by Ground Return Potentials
Monitoring battery status is integral to battery control systems. SMBus protocol used as the communication channel has multiple drivers/receivers trying to control the bus; ideally all ICs have the same ground reference. Two common design practices that could cause communication errors or shutdown are sensing battery current with a resistor and locating battery charger far from battery. Both create ground potentials between battery ICs and system ICs, which if too large cause missed bits or substrate currents. Learn the results of an investigation into errors caused by these phenomena, and corrective actions to eliminate them.

Methods for Good Material Selection and Battery Lifetime Improvement
The battery industry has made significant advances in recent years to improve the performance and lifetime of today's batteries. In this talk, we will discuss analytical methods that allow good material selection during battery manufacturing. One important consideration is controlling the composition and impurity level from one material supplier to another, or even from batch to batch from the same supplier. Battery lifetime degradation is known to be caused by the continuous growth of an SEI film on the surface of electrode particles. Characterizing this layer allows a better understanding of electrochemical processes and results in improved battery design. Hear the technical challenges associated with analyzing this critical film.

"Smart Activation" Resettable Circuit Protection for High-Rate Discharge Li-Ion Battery Applications
In 2010, a new Metal Hybrid PPTC (MHP) technology was introduced to address the rapidly expanding market for high-rate-discharge Li-Ion battery applications such as power tools, e-bikes, light electric vehicles (LEVs) and standby power applications. The MHP arc-less contact technology results in circuit protection devices capable of providing 30 A+ hold currents at voltage ratings over 30 VDC. This technology offers designers a cost-effective, space-saving alternative to conventional battery pack circuit protection solutions. This presentation will describe how the latest MHP technology, introduced in 2012, builds upon the previous-generation MHP device family by adding "smart activation" functionality.

Nanofiber/Microfiber Li-Ion Battery Separators for Higher Power and Faster Recharge
Current stretched porous film battery separators for Li-Ion batteries are thin, strong and provide a good barrier between electrodes, at the cost of having very high internal resistance and low ionic flow due to low porosity (generally <40 percent) and high "dead space" that come from starting with a solid material and trying to impart porosity. This work uses an alternative approach, where linear nanofibers and microfibers are combined in wet laid nonwoven processes to give separators that are strong and thin, but have higher porosity (60 percent to 70 percent) and so have much higher ionic flow. Batteries made with these separators have shown 25 percent increase in energy density, 300 percent higher power and four times the recharge rate of similar batteries made with incumbent film materials.

Internal Short-Circuit Test Method Development for Li-Ion Batteries
Thermal runaway caused by internal short circuit (ISC) in Li-Ion cells during usage is a very challenging and critical safety topic that has been investigated by battery researchers for years.  A test method that can induce an ISC in a simple manner indicative of field failures would be very valuable tool in improving safety standards for such energetic energy storage devices.  This research will describe some of the main criteria that a simulated ISC test method would need to satisfy and then, using the 18650 type Li-Ion cells, compare and contrast a variety of ISC tests.  Finally, we make a case for one of these tests, an Indentation-Induced ISC (IIISC) test as the most suitable test method for simulating ISC in Li-Ion cells by demonstrating its ability to differentiate the performance of 18650 cells with different safety features.
