Lithium Battery Use

Dane Kouttron, Research Engineer, NRL, Phyllis Carter, EMP Officer, EHS Office

Enrollment: Limited: First come, first served (no advance sign-up)
Attendance: Participants must attend all sessions

Our goal is to explore and discuss planning for battery use from sourcing to disposal.  We will focus on the practical aspects that surround the engineering component in building batteries.

Most of our experience centers on Li power storage design and use for EVs in racing.  However, the class is open to exploring other uses like hobby, technology development, technology modification, and field work.

The center piece of the class is the review of our own cases studies, specifically what our Edgerton teams have learned experientially.

Points of discussion 

*This class will not look in-depth at the EE of building or powering devices.  This class is about the practical aspects of how we make it happen.
