An effective forecast method to trigger Thermal Runaway (TR) warning in an early stage is essential for monitoring battery safety. In this paper, we propose a novel data-driven approach to perform multi-step ahead forecast accurately for battery thermal runaway state at cell-level. We formulate this forecasting task as an imbalance data classification task and propose Meta Thermal Runaway Forecasting Neural Network (Meta-TRFNN) to solve it. Essentially, we exploit high-dimensional thermal images along with low-dimensional temperature and voltage data to capture a more representative thermal profile. Moreover, we adapt a meta-learning framework to handle the data deficiency problem. We evaluate Meta-TRFNN on simulated samples and real-world samples. Although this classification task is highly imbalanced, Meta-TRFNN is still proven effective with limited historical information. Our further comparison experiments not only demonstrate the forecasting ability of Meta-TRFNN, but also validate the benefit of involving high-dimensional thermal images and the efficacy of meta-learning framework.

All-solid-state batteries (SSBs) are one of the most fascinating next-generation energy storage systems that can provide improved energy density and safety for a wide range of applications from portable electronics to electric vehicles. The development of SSBs was accelerated by the discovery of new materials and the design of nanostructures. In particular, advances in the growth of thin-film battery materials facilitated the development of all solid-state thin-film batteries (SSTFBs)—expanding their applications to microelectronics such as flexible devices and implantable medical devices. However, critical challenges still remain, such as low ionic conductivity of solid electrolytes, interfacial instability and difficulty in controlling thin-film growth. In this review, we discuss the evolution of electrode and electrolyte materials for lithium-based batteries and their adoption in SSBs and SSTFBs. We highlight novel design strategies of bulk and thin-film materials to solve the issues in lithium-based batteries. We also focus on the important advances in thin-film electrodes, electrolytes and interfacial layers with the aim of providing insight into the future design of batteries. Furthermore, various thin-film fabrication techniques are also covered in this review.

... A battery pack is composed by a number of single cells connected in series or in parallel and this asks for the design of a proper battery cooling system, able to control temperature rise and temperature gradient from the single cell level to the entire pack [4]. In fact, different temperatures between different cells may lead to different charge/discharge performance along the battery pack, which, in turns, causes the cells to be electrically unbalanced and the overall pack performance dramatically reduced [5]. ...

Lithium-ion batteries are the main energy storage unit for electric vehicles. The prevention of thermal runaway is essential for ensuring safe operation of these batteries. Different cell packaging patterns have an influence on the thermal runaway behavior of lithium-ion batteries during overcharging. In this paper, prismatic and pouch lithium-ion battery cells with the same capacity and chemistries are used to experimentally investigate the internal failure mechanisms and associated external characteristics during overcharging. The entire overcharge process is divided into five stages according to the voltage and temperature curves. The results indicate that the pouch battery cell exhibits better thermal behavior characteristic and overcharge tolerance when compared to the prismatic battery cell in stages I to III. However, the prismatic battery cell has better thermal runaway buffering characteristic, smaller deformation and longer early warning time. This is due to the use of a safety valve which results in subsided damage caused by thermal runaway. Their maximum surface temperature differences increase linearly with the overcharge process, until thermal runaway occurs and rapid rise to the highest temperature point takes place. These results provide an insight into the safety and thermal management design of battery systems.

Lithium-ion batteries have many advantages such as the high specific energy, the high specific power, the long calendar life, being environmentally friendly, and can be used without the memory effect. Thus this type of battery is widely used as the core component in many applications such as electric vehicles, portable electronic devices, and distributed energy storage systems. However, lithium-ion batteries can easily develop into thermal runaways due to the stress and abuse from mechanical, electrical, and thermal perspectives, posing a major threat to the overall safety of many battery systems. On the premise of passing the manufacturer's safety inspections, a variety of methods for monitoring and detecting thermal runaway events are developed to enhance the safety and robustness of lithium-ion batteries in different application scenarios. This paper thus summarizes the existing literature on this topic and presents a comparative study on the sensitivity of various monitoring and detection methods. Potential future research directions are also discussed in detail to further enhance the safety and robustness of lithium-ion battery systems.

Lithium-ion battery is an appropriate choice for electric vehicle (EV) due to its promising features of high voltage, high energy density, low self-discharge and long lifecycles. The successful operation of EV is highly dependent on the operation of battery management system (BMS). State of charge (SOC) is one of the vital paraments of BMS which signifies the amount of charge left in a battery. A good estimation of SOC leads to long battery life and prevention of catastrophe from battery failure. Besides, an accurate and robust SOC estimation has great significance towards an efficient EV operation. However, SOC estimation is a complex process due to its dependency on various factors such as battery age, ambient temperature, and many unknown factors. This review presents the recent SOC estimation methods highlighting the model-based and data-driven approaches. Model-based methods attempt to model the battery behavior incorporating various factors into complex mathematical equations in order to accurately estimate the SOC while the data-driven methods adopt an approach of learning the battery’s behavior by running complex algorithms with a large amount of measured battery data. The classifications of model-based and data-driven based SOC estimation are explained in terms of estimation model/algorithm, benefits, drawbacks, and estimation error. In addition, the review highlights many factors and challenges and delivers potential recommendations for the development of SOC estimation methods in EV applications. All the highlighted insights of this review will hopefully lead to increased efforts toward the enhancement of SOC estimation method of lithium-ion battery for the future high-tech EV applications.

... On one hand, in the process of battery production, coating, ingredients, and unevenness of impure contents of batteries will lead to the difference on original capacity, resistance, columbic efficiency and self-discharge rate of the battery [12][13]. On the other hand, the thermal distribution in the battery pack is always non-uniform under the same current rate and the state of charge (SOC) usage, which will lead to temperature variations among cells [14]. As a result, the differences in battery cells' performance and degradation behavior would be aggravated by those differences in battery state [15][16]. ...
