Energy storage has never been so important due to the climate change and the enormous increase in energy demand. A good battery capacity is a key factor here. This can be investigated by means of thermal analysis. By detecting the heat loss during charging and discharging, it is possible to evaluate the performance of a battery.
The NETZSCH Multiple Module Calorimeter (MMC) 274 Nexus® offers three different measurement
Modules. The ARC Module can be used for so-called heat-wait-search (HWS) tests or thermal runaway tests; the Scanning Module is suited for such applications as the evaluation of endothermic or exothermic phase transitions as well as thermal hazard screening; and the Coin Cell Module is specialized for the investigation of batteries.
