Safe Handling of High Voltage Battery Systems

C1019

Abstract
Content

This course will introduce participants to the risks encountered in handling high voltage battery systems and their component parts. With the understanding of these risks, the course will then address how to raise risk awareness and then methods of dealing with those risks. The outcome of this course should be improved avoidance of personal injury, reduced risk of reputation loss, product liability actions and reduced risk of loss of property and time. Participants will have an opportunity to participate in a real world battery handling case study scenario in which they will identify solutions for potential risk situations.

Learning Objectives
Content
By attending this course, you will be able to:
  • Identify the handling risks of the battery system
  • Respect the risks and work with them
  • Develop a safety program to manage the risks
Who Should Attend
Content

This course is primarily intended for vehicle and battery engineers, battery system integration engineers, battery testing engineers, safety systems engineers, electrical engineers and thermal management engineers recently assigned to their roles or returning to hybrid or electric vehicle programs. It will also be beneficial to those involved in the specification, design, development, testing and planning of hybrid vehicle programs. Prototype shop staff will find the safety protocol aspects helpful.

Prerequisites
Content

SAE course C0626, Introduction to Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Battery Systems, is recommended as a prerequisite. Material presented will be practical in nature and is based on selected fundamentals of chemistry, materials science, and electrical and mechanical engineering. An undergraduate degree in electrical, mechanical or chemical engineering will assist in gaining maximum benefit from the material presented. Experience or training in battery electrochemistry is helpful, but not essential.
