Description

The Energy Storage Lab (ESL)

Provides evaluation capabilities for ground vehicle energy storage systems

The ESL evaluates and qualifies batteries and other electrochemical technologies at the cell, module and battery pack levels. The ESL also uses an Electrochemical Analysis and Research Laboratory (EARL) housed within the Propulsion Lab.

Capabilities

The ESL is comprised of three large battery test rooms, two test chambers and storage rooms. Multiple cell/battery cyclers on a centralized control system, thermal ovens and temperature controlled water baths support a variety of electrochemical tests. The EARL has battery and cell cycler equipment that can test up to 50 V modules at charge or discharge currents up to 200 A with temperature controls ranging from minus 37° C to 177° C.

Benefits

Provides cradle-to-grave research and testing support for all DoD ground vehicle energy storage systems.

Aids in assessing technical readiness levels (TRLs), understanding new technologies and supporting the PEOs when determining whether systems are ready for fielding.

Provides warfighters with solutions for fielded and future systems.

The EARL can test manufacturer performance claims on battery products and provide usable data for design purposes.
