Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Batteries are the most essential part of energy storage for the electrification of technologies, from portable electronic amenities to transportation systems. As the world is facing a severe energy crisis, the demand for renewable energy technology has increased rapidly. Additionally, the automotive industries are currently shifting to complete electrification by replacing fossil fuel-based engines. It is not possible to ensure the sustainable electrification of such technologies and industries without advancements in batteries. Despite several developments, the demand for batteries that are low cost, lightweight,  sustainable, safer, and able to provide improved performance, high-energy density, and longer lifetimes has tremendously increased. It is also important to improve testing methods for cells and modules to diagnose faults to avoid unexpected fire incidents, which can lead to thermal runaway or severe catastrophic events, in order to develop effective methods of assembling battery packs from individual cells and facilitate modelling to predict their performances and safety. The commercialization of battery technologies depends on how they will be processed when they will reach the end of life. Therefore, the reuse and recycling of batteries become an integral part of unprecedented acceptance.

This Special Issue aims to collate publications on the recent developments in battery materials, battery testing methods, battery modelling, the management of cells in a pack, and the application of batteries in different technological fields.

Topics of interest for publication include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Novel testing methods to evaluate battery cells, modules, and packs.
  • The ageing of batteries to evaluate performance in a battery pack.
  • Modelling battery cell/module/pack performances.
  • Novel methods for remanufacturing battery packs for second-life battery applications.
  • Developing safety standards for novel processes for second-life battery usages and recycling.
  • Recycling batteries after their end-of-life.

With the increase in the production of electric vehicles (EVs) globally, a significant volume of waste power battery modules (WPBM) will be generated accordingly, posing challenges for their disposal. An intelligent scrap power battery disassembly sequence planning method, integrated with operational risk perception, is proposed to automate the planning process. Taking into consideration the risk coefficients, energy consumption, and costs during disassembly, this method maximizes profits, minimizes energy usage, and ensures safety. Utilizing an extended part priority graph, an optimized model for integrated risk-aware disassembly sequence planning (IRA-DSP) is constructed. With the Guangqi Toyota LB7A-FX1 as a case study, and using real data from resource recovery enterprises, an improved MOPSO-GA algorithm is proposed to solve the model and generate disassembly plans. The results demonstrate the method’s ability to achieve unit-level disassembly of WPBM, avoid high-risk sequences, and optimize profit and energy consumption, exhibiting its practicality and feasibility.
