Title: Perspective—From Calorimetry Measurements to Furthering Mechanistic Understanding and Control of Thermal Abuse in Lithium-Ion Cells

Abstract

Lithium-ion battery safety is prerequisite for applications from consumer electronics to grid energy storage. Cell and component-level calorimetry studies are central to safety evaluations. Qualitative empirical comparisons have been indispensable in understanding decomposition behavior. More systematic calorimetry studies along with more comprehensive measurements and reporting can lead to more quantitative mechanistic understanding. This mechanistic understanding can facilitate improved designs and predictions for scenarios that are difficult to access experimentally, such as system-level failures. Recommendations are made to improve usability of calorimetry results in mechanistic understanding. From our perspective, this path leads to a more mature science of battery safety.
