Lithium Ion Risk Prevention System
Derek Sandahl, Global Product Manager - Engineered Systems
The energy market is changing rapidly to energy sources that require installation and use of technologies to regulate the power grid and store massive amounts of energy for future release. Lithium-ion battery systems are one of the leading technologies being used for the evolving energy needs. The systems vary in construction size and configurations in the rapid developing industry.
The widespread use of lithium-ion battery technology is rapidly outpacing regulations and requirements for fire protection safety systems in these applications. The massive amounts of stored electrical energy and potential risk of thermal runaway events could lead to a destructive sequence if not properly protected with safety systems. This presentation will provide a background on lithium-ion battery systems, their failure mechanisms and offer a protection scheme for the hazards.
About the Speaker
Derek has spent 16 years working in the fire protection industry for Johnson Controls. He is the inventor on several patents for protection involving protection of unique hazards including acoustics and lithium-ion batteries. He is holder of BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lake Superior State University and MS degree from University of Wisconsin Green Bay.
