The "Battery Engineering & Safety" group deals with issues related to the development of lithium-ion battery systems and their application safety. The focus is on the mechanical, electrical and thermal design of battery cells, modules and packs with the aid of simulations and reality tests. In addition to novel battery system product architectures, research is conducted on product innovations at all levels. The aim is always to build these as prototypes. The Electromobility Laboratory (eLab) of RWTH Aachen University has all the necessary production techniques at its disposal for this purpose, such as mechanical processing, 3D printing techniques and laser welding. The "Battery Abuse Center" provides the infrastructure for mechanical, electrical and thermal testing as well as certification of the batteries.
