Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess the safety characteristics for both primary and secondary lithium electrochemical systems. Of particular interest is the behavior of specific cell designs of these systems when subjected to the electrical and thermal abuse test procedures prescribed in NAVSEANOTE 9310. These abusive tests include short circuit, forced overdischarge, charge, and incineration. The main intent of the report is the formulation of a lithium battery safety matrix wherein certain electrochemical system, cell designs, or cell types which have exhibited exceptionally safe characteristics under abusive conditions may be exempt from some or all of the NAVSEANOTE 9310 test procedures. Keywords Primary Lithium systems Secondary lithium systems NAVSEANOTE 9310 Safety Hazards Short circuit.
