The two universities want to jointly develop a standard for battery safety as part of the German government funded BaSS project. Together they will develop safety standards for individual cells, cell connections and complete storage systems.
The project is being funded by the German ministry for education and research with one million euros. Titled Battery Safety Standardization (BaSS), the project aims to reduce battery component size for more efficient electric transportation, as well as safety issues.
The Nail Penetration Test will play another focal role, where a local short circuit is simulated on pouch circuits to test chain reactions resulting from the released exothermic energy of the cell failure. Different cell configurations will be tested to find to ultimately determine a new safety certification standard.
