USABC Electric Vehicle Battery Test This manual summarises the Procedures Manual: 1996 Updated procedural information needed June 2015 Revision 3 to perform the battery testing specified by the USABC.
The USABC program aims to produce a cost-competitive, lithium ion battery that is lighter, smaller and higher in power than existing battery technologies for hybrid electric vehicles.
EnerDel expects to deliver the next set of sample battery cells to the USABC in the next few months.
USABC is a consortium of the United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR).
0-volt lithium-ion batteries, consistent with USABC goals.
For the project, 50% financed by USABC, engineers and scientists at JCS will enhance lithium-ion battery technology for near-future hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs), focusing on accelerating lithium-ion (Li-Ion) technology development by improving battery power in low temperatures and creating solutions that reduce battery system costs.
The USABC is supporting the development and research into lithium-polymer batteries by Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.
Under the terms of the 24-month USABC development contract, Maxwell said it will deliver fully integrated multi-cell modules for testing by the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories and Idaho National Laboratory against auto industry standards for energy capacity, pulse power, abuse-tolerance, calendar life and cycle life.
Under the contract, USABC will be responsible for developing electrochemical energy storage technologies that support commercialization of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, electric and fuel cell vehicles.
The 16-month program will develop an advanced lithium-ion 12-volt start-stop battery system to meet or exceed the performance, life and cost targets set by USABC.
The recognition of our work and subsequent awarding of a contract by USABC is a testament to our dedication and a major milestone for us," said Marc Kohler, director of product management for ActaCell.
Additionally, ActaCell was awarded a $179, 015, 16-month technology assessment of high-power cells to meet requirements specified by USABC for power-assist hybrid-electric vehicle (PAHEV) applications.
