Factors you did NOT know that cause lithium-ion batteries to ignite and explode… And the test solutions
Most explosion and fire accidents in lithium-ion battery products occur while charging, even inside electric vehicles, power tools, electronic products, you name it. This mainly happens when the negative electrode material (graphite or mixed silicon) inflates while charging, which shortens the distance between the positive and negative electrodes. If the mixing of conductive impurities causes the effective distance between the electrodes to become shorter than...
Safety and quality testing for defects or even potential defects in component windings like a layer short, corona or partial discharge, or flashover is critical in early phases of design and throughout production. Until now, makers of wound components like motor stators, transformers, and inductors required several instruments and multiple test stations active in order to comply with EC/UL standards. This seminar will cover some...
Continuing the series of webinars for EVSE test solutions, this webinar will review the industrial standards with regards to the WPT (Wireless Power Transfer/Transmission) for EV charging. We will discuss the test requirements of the WPT and provide the associated test solutions with the automatic test systems (ATS) to ultimately validate the functionality and improve the efficiency of EV charging through WPT.
The automotive trends and obstacles that engineers face during design verification, functional test and mass production testing can be very difficult to navigate. This seminar has been put together to demonstrate the improvements made to EV testing performance with newly developed instruments, functional test systems, battery test and simulation systems. You will get an overview of the entire scope of work with reliable, precision instrumentation...

LCR Meters: Selecting Precision Equipment for Low, Mid, and High Frequency Impedance Measurements [VIDEO]
For magnetics and passive component testing, measurement of the electrical behavior and characterization of capacitors, inductors, resistors, and wound components to the most current of specifications is essential. Characterization tests include inductance, capacitance, resistance, impedance, dissipation factor, quality factor, leakage current, and insulation resistance. In addition, equipment should also test switches, connectors, lead wires, conductive, dielectric material, magnetic material, and semiconductor components. This seminar covers...
On occasion, an electrical short can develop inside a lithium ion battery cell after passing production tests due to burrs or particles on the positive electrode reaching the negative electrode after inflation occurs. If these cells that are susceptible to failure pass through to the end user, the results could be catastrophic. Fire or explosion in lithium ion battery cells has developed into a serious...
Countless types of devices get their power from the grid. Any device that receives its power from the grid generally has design and manufacturing standards that require testing for Compliance, Reliability, and Safety. Power Line Disturbances (PLD) related to utility power (the Grid) are defined as variations in the AC voltage amplitude, frequency, and waveform distortions. Terminology related to PLD’s are sag, surge, swell, harmonic,...
