  • This presentation discusses the impact of system design factors on battery aging and end of life. Topics include sizing of the state-of-charge operating window, cell balancing, and thermal management systems and their value in reducing pack degradation rates and cell imbalance growth over lifetime.
  • This presentation describes a battery optimization and trade-off analysis for Li-ion batteries used in EVs and PHEVs to extend their life and/or reduce cost.
  • The lead-acid battery is used in a variety of applications to provide primary and stand-by power. Because the battery significantly impacts the system cost, it behooves the designer to select a battery having the minimum life-cycle cost. Tubular batteries generally enjoy a longer life than equivalent flat plate batteries. This is because the frequency and severity of the most prevalent modes of failure are much reduced. Since the specific capacity of a tubular battery is comparable to that of a flat plate battery, the use of a tubular battery can result in a reduced system life-cycle cost.
  • The Chrysler Long Life Battery Concept Paper covers the establishing of the causes for batteries being removed from service, the determination of the cause for removal, and the design changes in the battery and its electrical and thermal environment to create the Long Life Battery Concept. The test shows the importance of controlling the vehicle environment as well as the battery construction in accomplishing the goal. 13 figures, 2 tables.
  • A battery has been developed which can satisfy the normal reserve application requirements of long storage life and high current discharge while also providing long active life and high specific energy. The 3 pound, 40 in.{sup 3} battery was designed to provide a maximum of seven months active life supporting pulses of 3.75 amperes at voltages over 8.0 volts while exposed to temperatures ranging from {minus}35 F to +145 F. In this paper, the battery design, including the novel design characteristic of isolating individual cells while still using a common electrolyte reservoir, will be presented. Also presented is data obtainedmore » during environmental testing, both pre and post activation, as well as performance data during various temperature cycles during a seven month discharge and capacity data at select temperatures.« less
