2019.10.22-25 Battery Safety Summit
Research continues to boost the energy storage capability of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) leading to expanding applications and consumer use. Higher energy plus increased use leads to higher risk. Therefore, accurate tests and models are critical for predicting and controlling the complex electrochemical, thermal, and mechanical behavior of LIBs. Additionally, regulations to promote protection and information derived from forensic investigations to enhance prevention are required. The task of implementing effective safety strategies falls on R&D scientists (chemical, electrical, material, and software engineers), battery manufacturers, regulatory authorities, forensic scientists, and the public. The 10th Annual Battery Safety Summit convenes these stakeholders to continue the vital dialogue of integrating and implementing LIB safety to meet ever-increasing energy demands.
Date: 22-25 October 2019
Venue: Westin Alexandria, 400 Courthouse Square, Alexandria, VA 22314, USA
Erik Schaltz received the MSc and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the Department of Energy, Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark, in 2005 and 2010, respectively. From 2009 to 2012, he has been an Assistant Professor and since 2012, he has been an Associate Professor. Both positions also at the Department of Energy, Aalborg University. At the Department, he is the leader of the research group in E-mobility and Drives and the vice leader of the Batteries research group. He is a guest and associate editor in several journals related to batteries and e-mobility and he is also a board member of the Danish Battery Society. His research interests include the usage of power electronics, electric machines, fuel cells, batteries, ultracapacitors, etc. as power train in various applications like electric vehicles, industrial machinery, and heavy-duty systems. In addition, he is also focused on battery state-estimation, management (electric and thermal), and modelling (electric, thermal, and lifetime) of battery cells and packs.
