Description

The Electrochemical Analysis and Diagnostics Laboratory (EADL) provides battery developers with reliable, independent, and unbiased performance evaluations of their cells, modules, and battery packs. These evaluations have been performed for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), government and industry consortia, and industrial developers to provide insight into the factors that limit the performance and life of advanced battery systems. Such evaluations help battery developers and DOE evaluate technical progress, and aid DOE in R&D decision-making. The EADL is an extensive facility designed to test large numbers of both small and large batteries designed within and outside of Argonne National Laboratory. It has the capability to conduct >240 concurrent advanced battery studies under operating conditions that simulate electric-vehicle (EV), electric-hybrid vehicle (HEV), utility load-leveling, and standby/uninterruptible power source applications. Each battery is independently defined, controlled and monitored to impose charging regimes and discharge load profiles that simulate the types of dynamic operating conditions found during actual use. The facility is supported by the US Department of Energy, Office of Vehicle Technologies, Hybrid and Electric Systems.
