How to Prevent Thermal Runaway in Lithium-Ion Batteries (revised date)

December 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free

Recent lithium-ion battery explosions have demonstrated how dangerous they can be. This webinar will explain the four stages of battery failure and how to prevent a thermal runaway with proper “Advanced Detection” at the appropriate stage of failure. It will also address why conventional gas detection will not prevent thermal runaway and address best design and layout practices as well as sequence of operation. Lithium-Ion batteries are safe once they’re understood! ABOUT THE SPEAKER William Sudah is a Mechanical Engineer…
