Affordable sensors for detecting battery degradation and failure
Effective sensors are needed to identify changes inside a battery that lead to degradation and failure. The EU-funded SPARTACUS project aims to develop cost-effective sensors that detect degradation and failure mechanisms before the battery’s loss of performance. Temperature sensors, as well as mechanical and acoustic sensors completed by electrochemical impedance measurement will be developed. The project will correlate sensor data to battery performance and corresponding models. It will continuously monitor the state of different parameters so that the battery can be cycled on an age-dependent optimum level. In addition, an advanced battery management system will be developed. Exploiting sensor data, cell monitoring could be improved leading to more efficient and safer batteries without the risk of overheating, fire or explosion.
