  1. 1. Nanotubes for Battery Applications

    Author : Sara Nordlinder; Kristina Edström; Torbjörn Gustafsson; M. Stanley Whittingham; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic chemistry; vanadium oxide; nanotubes; lithium battery; Li-ion battery; XRD; PES; electrochemistry; Oorganisk kemi; Inorganic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : Nanomaterials have attracted great interest in recent years, and are now also being considered for battery applications. Reducing the particle size of some electrode materials can increase battery performance considerably, especially with regard to capacity, power and rate capability. READ MORE

  2. 2. State-of-Health Estimation of Li-ion Batteries: Ageing Models

    Author : Jens Groot; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; State-of-health; lithium-ion battery; EV; PHEV; cycle life test; impedance spectroscopy; DVA; battery testing; ICA; battery model; HEV;

    Abstract : Significant research efforts are being made to understand, and ultimately mitigate, thedegradation of Li-ion batteries upon usage. Currently, battery ageing models are used inorder to optimise the battery usage and to achieve robust battery solutions. READ MORE

  3. 3. State-of-Health Estimation of Li-ion Batteries: Cycle Life Test Methods

    Author : Jens Groot; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; EV; DVA; ICA; cycle life test; HEV; battery testing; State-of-health; battery model; PHEV; lithium-ion battery; impedance spectroscopy;

    Abstract : Despite a rapid development, cost, performance and durability of the energy storage system are still a hindrance for a wide commercialisation of heavy-duty hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). The purpose of the work presented in this thesis is to investigate how different load cycle properties affect the cycle life and ageing processes of Li-ion cells developed for use in HEVs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of safety characteristics for Li-ion battery cells by abuse testing

    Author : Carl Fredrik Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; overcharge; Lithium-ion; toxic gases; abuse test; thermal runaway; short circuit; safety; battery; fire;

    Abstract : Despite the many advantages with lithium-ion batteries there can be disadvantages in form of safetyissues. In an abuse situation a Li-ion cell can undergo a thermal runaway releasing excessive heat,flammable and toxic gas emissions and eventually accompanied by dissembling/explosion and fire. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods for Testing and Analyzing Lithium-Ion Battery Cells intended for Heavy-Duty Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    Author : Pontus Svens; Göran Lindbergh; Mårten Behm; Søren Juhl Andreasen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Li-ion; battery; hybrid electric vehicle; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Lithium-ion batteries designed for use in heavy-duty hybrid vehicles are continuously improved in terms of performance and longevity, but they still have limitations that need to be considered when developing new hybrid vehicles.               The aim of this thesis has been to study and evaluate potential test and analysis methods suitable for being used in the design process when maximizing lifetime and utilization of batteries in heavy-duty hybrid vehicles.
