As the industry is shifting from lead acid to lithium-ion batteries, there is a growing concern on safety. This educational session will explain the four stages of battery failure and how to prevent thermal runaway with proper "Advanced Detection". It will demonstrate the gases released prior to and after thermal runaway and illustrate why conventional gas detectors are not designed to prevent this failure. All findings are supported by third party testing including UL9540A recent test report. This session will also include the latest changes in codes and standards brought by city officials, and efficient design examples aimed at lowering end user costs.
1 - Identify 4 stages of battery failure
2 - Understand and identify the gases released before thermal runaway
3 - Key takeaways from recent UL9540A test report
4 - Codes/standards changes in relation to lithium-ion use
