Helmholtz-Portfolio Elektrochemische Speicher im System - Zuverlässigkeit und Integration

Helmholtz-Portfolio Elektrochemische Speicher im System - Zuverlässigkeit und Integration
Contact:Prof. Dr. Horst Hahn
Institute:INT, IAM, IPE, ITAS
Funding:HGF
Start:2011
End:2015

This Helmholtz-wide battery research project complements the Helmholtz-Initiative and focuses on reliability and integration of battery systems. Additionally to the Helmholtz-partners KIT, DLR and FZJ, the following universities contribute to the project: JLU Gießen, Universität Hamburg, TU Darmstadt, RWTH Aachen, WWU Münster, TUM.

The Portfolio project comprises

  • system analysis including scenario development in order to identify innovation potentials and minimize innovation risks;
  • development of novel methods for processing, structuring and assembling battery cells in order to improve reliability, safety and energy density;
  • development of new diagnostic tools for predicting battery lifetime and other system parameters, battery management systems and battery systems optimized for use in plug-in hybrids.
