Mitigating Event Propagation In Marine Battery Systems (Electric Vehicle Materials Europe 2020)

Tunji Adebusuyi, Bids and Tenders Manager e-Marine
Leclanché SA

Presentation Summary

International and national (Class and flag) certification bodies for marine requirements and challenges meeting them. Unlike other functional safety methodologies that will accept theoretical safety performance provided by system and component analysis, marine certification requires empirical test data as well as FMEA information before type approving a system. Tests include demonstrating how under all circumstances, the system can prevent the propagation of a single cell thermal event through out the pack. The presentation will cover basic class requirements, the commonly used mitigation strategies and potential avenues of future work to maintain safety at reduced cost.
