Energy storage system safety in electrified vehicles
Conference poster, 2012
The environmental challenges with CO2 emissions and a diminishing oil reserve drive the need of a broad introduction of electrified vehicles. The relatively new lithium-ion battery technology offers batteries with increased energy and power densities. Li-ion technology requires a monitoring system since its safety window is lower than many other battery technologies. In an energy storage system for electrified vehicles safety aspects thus have to be taken into serious consideration. In this paper fire as a consequence of malfunction or abuse of the energy storage system is discussed.
