Thermal runaway and thermal propagation, i.e. the propagation of a thermal incident from cell to cell inside a battery, are part of the most significant safety challenges in the use of lithium ion batteries as it occurs e.g. in the growing segment of electromobility.
In the workshop, fundamentals of thermal runaway and thermal propagation in lithium ion batteries are discussed and test and simulation approaches will be presented. The situation of laws and standards for thermal propagation is shown and aspects of functional safety in context with thermal propagation are discussed (hazard and risk analysis according to ISO 26262:2019).battery-power.eu
