What: Lithium-Ion Battery UPS for Broadcast Applications
When: March 10, 2020 6:00 PM
Given some of the recent hoverboard and Samsung battery “events”, there is a lot of discussion about whether lithium-ion batteries are a safe solution for data center and broadcast applications. This presentation, pasted as a PDF below, discussed the evolution of the various lead-acid batteries currently available with a focus on the future of energy storage, especially lithium-ion. Our guest speaker weighed the trade-offs between the various lithium-ion chemistries, discussed how lithium batteries are constructed, explained what a battery management system is, which regulatory requirements should be considered, and fire-mitigation/safety concerns.
Fellowship and a light dinner started about 6:00 pm followed by organization business and Chris' presentation. Thanks to Staco Energy Products for sponsoring dinner and Brian Oliger and our friends at Hubbard Radio for organizing and hosting our meeting.
