Readers get a hands-on understanding of Li-ion technology, how Lithium Ion batteries are made, Lithium Ion battery chemistry, they are guided through the design and assembly of a battery, through deployment, configuration and testing, Lithium Ion battery advantages as well as Lithium Ion battery safety and avoiding accidents. Lithium-Ion Batteries and Applications: A Practical and Comprehensive Guide to Lithium-Ion Batteries and Arrays, from Toys to Towns, Volume 1, Batteries and Lithium-Ion Batteries and Applications: A Practical and Comprehensive Guide to Lithium-Ion Batteries and Arrays, from Toys to Towns, Volume 2, Applications published by Artech House, provides a thorough introduction to lithium ion (Li-ion) technology. The books cover dozens of applications, with solutions for each application provided and more than 500 illustrations, directories of commercial products; it is written for the installer, the designer, the project manager, the technician, the purchasing agent, the enthusiast, the racing team member, anyone with an interest in lithium ion technology.
Exploring the Li-on cell: Lithium Ion battery chemistry and more
The first volume, on Batteries, explores Li-on cell: describing types, formats and chemistries. Cell arrangements and issues are also discussed, including series (balance) and parallel (fusing and inrush current). The author describes how Lithium Ion batteries are made and delves into specific Li-ion Battery Management Systems, as well as battery design, assembly, battery manufacturing process, deployment, troubleshooting and repair in modular batteries, split batteries and battery arrays. The book serves as a guide in creating custom batteries by selecting cells, BMS and other components, understanding the issues and challenges in a Li-ion battery, selecting solutions and designing a Li-ion battery.
Lithium Ion battery advantages and applications in consumer products and safety
Volume Two, on Applications, focuses on small batteries in consumer products and power banks, as well as large low voltage batteries in stationary or mobile house power, telecom, residential, marine and microgrid. Traction batteries, including passenger, industrial, race vehicles, public transit, marine, submarine and aircraft are also discussed as well as other Lithium Ion battery advantages applications. High voltage stationary batteries grid-tied and off-grid are presented, exploring their use in grid quality, arbitrage and back-up, residential, microgrid, industrial, office buildings. Finally, the book explores Lithium Ion battery safety and what happens when accidents occur, such as lithium battery explosion so readers may avoid these mistakes.
Working with Lithium-Ion Batteries
Technicians will benefit from this book from a practical standpoint as they learn how to build, configure, troubleshoot and deploy a Li-ion battery. Project managers will be able to understand the issues and challenges in a Li-ion battery and select the appropriate resources to solve these challenges. Quality assurance operators will know what to look for when receiving components for a battery and testing a battery before delivery. Hobbyists and enthusiasts will understand how to reclaim consumer batteries and design power banks as well as design a Li-ion battery for an electric vehicle conversion.
