Cell to Module The Peugeot e208 pack is rather complex looking, but the module is a quite standard 12 prismatic cells in an aluminium box. Module to Pack The Peugeot e208 battery consists of 18 modules assembled into what is a complex battery … Read more

Lithium Battery Manufacturing Equipment CAPEX

pie chart showing breakdown in cell manufacturing capex costs

If you are entering into manufacturing cells then you will want to understand Lithium Battery Manufacturing Equipment CAPEX. The detailed report is available from Bonsai Technology. This analysis is for a prismatic cell case and is an average. Note that this depends on: Therefore, it is a first indicator in the breakdown of a total … Read more

Cell Manufacturing Strategy

In order to develop cell manufacturing you need a cell manufacturing strategy. This needs to be thought through from access to the raw materials, workforce development, long term financial support and ensuring you have ongoing research. This requires sustained leadership and direction. The strategy for this from the European Battery Alliance (EBA) [2] clearly defines … Read more

Using an ECM to Model HiPot Tests

circuit schematic for HiPot test modelling

Author: Siddharth Kurwa A DC high-potential test (HiPot) is used to detect manufacturing defects in the electrode stack/jelly roll. During the test, a high voltage (orders of magnitude higher than the cell operating voltage) is applied to the cell to screen out early-in-life and latent risks from the production cell population. It is preferred to … Read more

Engineering Empty Space: Tailoring Battery Electrodes for Ion Transport

Author: Anton Resing: The cathode electrodes in a lithium-ion battery are a composite of solid charge storing particles, a polymeric binder, and a conductive additive. Together, they are well dispersed in a solvent and spread like paint on a conductive substrate, an effective and pleasingly simple solution that works across various chemistries and cell designs. … Read more

Battery Module: Manufacturing, Assembly and Test Process Flow.

In this article, we will look at the Battery Module Production. There are 7 Steps for Battery Module Production.

1 GWh of Cells

A look at the numbers around 1 GWh of cells and what could you do with 1 GWh of energy. There are more equivalents for 1 GWh and 1GWh of cells, but hopefully this just helps put the unit into perspective. References Manufacturing Process In order to engineer a battery pack it is important to … Read more
