Recently, the State Key Laboratory of New Energy and Energy Storage Operation Control of China Electric Power Research Institute held the 2018 Science and Technology Open Day. Visitors from China Agricultural University, North China Electric Power University and other universities and enterprises walked into the battery energy storage technology laboratory.
Since the battery energy storage technology laboratory is committed to the research and development of large-scale energy storage technology and is closely connected with people's production and life, it has attracted great attention from visitors.
Research and test the internal and external characteristics of batteries
In the battery external characteristics experiment area, technicians introduced various environmental simulation test chambers and battery charge and discharge testers of different specifications to the visitors.
All charge and discharge testers in the experimental area can be controlled through the control platform in the monitoring room, so as to realize different charge and discharge procedures and operating condition regulation.
Put the battery into the environmental simulation box to set the environmental conditions, and conduct a charge and discharge test on the battery to obtain the external characteristic parameters such as the discharge capacity, energy density, cycle life, power characteristics, and failure performance of the battery under certain conditions.see more:500ah lithium battery
The battery internal characteristic test area is equipped with a complete battery internal characteristic test platform, which can study the microstructure, structure, element composition, and thermodynamic characteristics of key battery materials.
By comparing various internal characteristic parameters in use and after failure, the experimenters can obtain the failure form and influencing factors, analyze and evaluate the performance, advantages and disadvantages of the existing battery from the perspective of battery internal characteristics, and determine the use of the battery. Principles and performance improvements have a very important role to play.
According to technical personnel, the core of the battery safety problem is the deterioration of the internal reaction. By building a battery external and internal characteristic detection platform, the laboratory combines the external and internal characteristic parameters of the battery to study the coupling relationship between the internal and external characteristics of lithium-ion batteries, and establishes a battery state evaluation and analysis system to provide large-scale storage of lithium-ion batteries. The security of the application is provided.
Assess battery safety risks
At present, battery safety is a common topic of concern to the whole people. According to technical personnel, battery safety problems are mainly attributed to two aspects: one is the characteristics of the battery itself, and the other is unexpected external events or improper application of the battery.
There are a series of potential exothermic reactions in the battery system, which are the root causes of battery safety problems.
If the battery encounters some emergencies or improper use, such as overcharging, hard object puncture, extrusion, high temperature, it is easy to cause a series of physical and chemical reactions in the electrode, electrolyte, diaphragm and other materials, such as positive electrode decomposition, diaphragm Damage leads to internal short circuit, etc. These reactions generate a lot of heat. Once the heat cannot be dissipated in time, the thermal runaway of the battery will occur, causing the battery to catch fire and explode.
The technicians especially reminded that once the battery burns and explodes, special attention should be paid to prevent the debris, smoke and shock waves generated by the explosion to ensure personal safety.
In addition, the technicians also explained to the visitors the focus of battery safety evaluation technology and the simulation method of safety issues in different scenarios from the two application scenarios of electric energy storage and electric vehicles.
