Experts demand that battery systems at least comply with the safety integration level (SIL) 2 of the ISO 26262 – better still, level 3.
If dendrites grow inside the lithium cells, the battery parts come apart. The internal short circuit results in a fire – the lithium batterie blows up!
From May 15 to 17 The Battery Show Europe in Hannover highlights newest technical innovations in the field of battery and H/EV manufacturing. Already today pre-conference workshops take place.
Particularly reliable lithium cells contain a ceramic separator. It physically isolates the lithium cathode from the anode (made of graphite or copper, for example).
The Italian PV and storage market sees strong growth. Enrico Marin, General Manager of BayWa r.e. Solar Systems S.r.l. in Bruneck is sharing his expectations.
Large lithium cells heat up much more during operation. Prefer smaller cells with metal in a metal case! Hands off storage units involving large cells in a plastic housing.
Large lithium cells with 200 ampere-hours pose a much greater risk, and of these there are more than one in a battery, so the potential danger is quite high.
As we learned from the Samsung S7 mobile phones, lithium cells can burn. Solar batteries for home supply made of lithium can burn, too.
