Conference Day 2

Start of Day 2

9:15 am - 9:45 am Registration and welcome coffee

9:45 am - 10:00 am Opening by Pascal Thalin, SAE Aerospace Standards Europe, SAE


10:00 am - 10:30 am Achieving safe, high performing and high power li-ion battery designs

• Safe means passively propagation resistant to any single cell thermal runaway event with no
flames exiting the battery enclosure
• High performing means > 160 Wh/kg at the battery brick level
• High power means capable of 3C (20 min) continuous discharge rate
• All while using commercial 18650 cell designs capable of 225 Wh/kg at 3C
• Designs maintains low thermal gradients from cell-to-cell and achieves efficient thermal
dissipation through the use of oscillating heat pipe heat sink technology

3:30 pm - 4:00 pm Refreshment break and networking

4:00 pm - 4:30 pm Modular battery packs on the basis of different cell technologies and geometries

A powerful, reliable and safe energy storage system can boost confidence in electric vehicles. To
overcome the limitations of battery systems, LION Smart is developing its own battery concept.
This new development aims to set new standards in price, performance and safety without the
need for measuring cabling and with a sophisticated safety concept. In this lecture, LION Smart will
report on general cell differences and the new battery concept.
