PHOENIX : Building more reliable and performant batteries by embedding sensors and self-healing functionalities to detect degradation and repair damage via advanced Battery Management System

Project Details


PHOENIX aims to develop battery cells with integrated sensors (mechanical, enhanced impedance spectroscopy, temperature, gas,
reference electrode) and self-healing (SH) functionalities (magnetically activated polymers, thermally activated polymers, metallic
organic frameworks coated separator, core-shell NMC composites). Tailor made triggering devices to activate SH mechanisms will
be developed, prototyped and demonstrated in Generation 3b and 4a Li Ion batteries. A Battery Management System (BMS), capable
of detecting defective operations and of triggering SH functionalities will be developed with in-line communication
