Presentations from event at DTI Århus on ‘experience exchange of battery testing’
On June 29, 2017, Danish Technological Institute (DTI) in Århus was hosting a DBS event on knowledge sharing of testing commercial lithium ion batteries.
Bjarne Johnsen and Kjeld Nørregaard from DTI gave an interesting laboratory tour of their battery test facilities. The laboratory includes test equipment for battery cycling and temperature chambers. Practical issues like battery fixture construction, voltage and temperature sensing, procedures for thermal runaway, etc. was discussed.
Afterwards, presentations was given by Martin Zacho from Schneider Electric on energy storage for Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) and by Vaclav Knap and Erik Schaltz from Aalborg University on their laboratory equipment and experience on Reference Performance Tests, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy, and test constrains related to lithium-sulfur batteries.
The presentations can be seen here:
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.
