BATTERY FAILURE CHAMBER
Enclosure designed to control and contain battery failure experiments.
This chamber was used by UCL to capture high-speed X-ray images at Diamond Light Source.
Battery failure can be instigated through electrical failure and/or controlled-heating programmes whilst performing acoustic/ultrasound diagnostics and capturing electrical performance data.
Sealed enclosure to withstand and contain battery failure
Battery electrical contacts for charge/discharge and electrochemical testing
3x Thermocouple inputs
Gas ports for sampling and purging
X-ray edition: Thinner aluminium walls in imaging region for reduced beam attentuation.
Sub-assembly for the battery before fitting into enclosure
Aluminium block housing the heating cartridges with ceramic base
Single-cell pouch cells used in this experiment
Interchangable sub-assembly depending on the battery format being tested (cylindrical, pouch, coin cell etc.)
Special thanks to the Design and Fabrication facility in UCL, Albert C. and the UCL research team.
