Abstract
The SBIR Phase I proposal is designed to improve the high end temperature performance of Altairnano''''s nano Lithium titanate batteries and will develop an equivalent circuit model capturing the transient dynamics of Altairnano’s 50 Ah cell. Altairnano will study the effects of various materials and the interactions between them to determine the best electrode material combination in order to eliminate gasses that are created at temperatures above 55 degrees Celsius. This research will attempt to accomplish this without sacrificing other performance attributes, such as long cycle life and high power rates, currently seen in existing Altairnano products. These objectives are intended to align with the Navy’s goal of developing a multipurpose energy storage module for a variety of shipboard applications ranging from single generator operations to pulse power applications.
