Lithium Batteries

Lithium-Ion Battery Testing, Certification, and Validation

The market for lithium-ion batteries is expected expand to more than $87 billion by 2027. Lithium batteries have higher energy density and lower discharge rate compared to nickel-metal hydride and lead acid batteries—and costs continue to drop. With more advantages than traditional batteries, a wide range of industries rely on lithium batteries, including automotive (particularly in the electric vehicle sub-sector), aerospace, defense, and medical, telecommunications, industrial, and consumer electronics. To ensure batteries are properly tested and safe to operate in real-world scenarios for the above industries, NTS conducts robust testing.

A Rigorous Approach to Safety

To ensure safety, NTS provides a thorough evaluation to determine the risk of hazards to personnel and physical infrastructure during testing. Prior to testing, therefore, the safety team assesses the product chemistry type, construction (cell, pack, and rack), enclosure type, size, weight, ampacity, and maximum voltage. These data are evaluated within the context of the size and weight of the battery packs to determine if internal thermal monitoring is incorporated into the pack design. This is used during battery testing as an early warning detection of an internal fault condition, which allows NTS to address safety concern well in advance of a serious event.  This information is then used to determine which facility may be best equipped to perform the testing safely in the event of an anticipated fault condition.
