BATTERY JAPAN 2012 - 3rd Int'l Rechargeable Battery Expo

Date: February 29th- March 2nd, 2012
Venue: Tokyo Big Sight (West Hall 1F / W4-53)

The Fraunhofer Battery Network is concerned with both primary and secondary (rechargeable) systems, from small-scale applications such as coin cells to large stationary systems such as redox-flow batteries.

Electrical energy storage devices in vehicles must meet a particularly wide range of (sometimes contradictory) requirements, regarding for example their cost, energy and power density, cycle stability, temperature range and safety. In order to adapt lithium ion batteries for use in vehicles, optimisation is needed across a series of disciplines. The institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have competences in virtually every stage of the chain.

At the Battery Japan 2012, the booth (W4-53) of the Fraunhofer Battery Network will exhibit their latest research progress.

Furthermore, in the Technical Conference Matthias Vetter (Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy System ISE) will hold a talk.

Date: March 2nd (Fri) 15:30-18:00
Session: BJ-4 Lithium-ion Batteries from Automotive to Green-energy Applications
Titel: Battery Systems Development of Modular Solutions and Their Applications in Electric Cars and in Stationary PV Systems

The presentation will give an overview on the single development steps from cells to complete battery systems. Innovative approaches for conducting methods, thermal management and battery management including state of charge and state of health algorithms as well as results from a modular battery system will be presented. Besides technology development questions and approaches for systems integration in electric vehicles and in stationary PV applications will be discussed and approaches for standardization will be presented.
