Here are some of the topics for January that were discussed earlier this year.  The exact agenda is still being developed.


1.        Causes for internal shorts; the intent of this forum is to educate communities that do not have access to all the technical information

2.       Session 1: What can be done to screen for internal shorts at the cell and battery manufacturing facilities or user facilities

3.       Session 2: Detection of shorts in the field

4.       Session 3: Methods to simulate internal shorts and what do they tell you?

5.       Other possible topics:  Cell components that can help prevent internal shorts or limit their effects.

If a short starts, is there a way to prevent thermal runaway?
