Introduction

Lithium-ion batteries are used in a variety of applications: portable devices, stationary storage, and electric vehicles. However, a significant amount of stored energy always poses a risk, especially if it is released quickly.

Target Audience

Engineers, energy technicians, and employees from research, development, and technical sales.

Main Topics

  • Basic dangers of lithium batteries
  • Explanation of thermal runaway
  • Thermal runaway process, especially the release of gas and energy
  • Fire suppression options
  • Methods for increasing safety

Objectives

This seminar will explain the general risks and fire hazards associated with lithium-ion batteries. Participants will receive an overview of the general electrical and technical risks, gas risks, energy amounts in case of fire, and options for fire suppression. They will also work together to develop methods for increasing safety.
