Involved Presentations, Reports, and Projects

2011

For a leading lithium-ion battery manufacturer,  led a electrical vehicle (EV) Lithium Ion battery pack manufacturing cost assessment project. The assignment required to assess the manufacturing costs including battery cell, battery block, battery stack, and battery pack. Various manufacturing processes were evaluated, such as ultrasonic welding vs. laser welding and spot welding, etc. The results helped the better understand their electrical vehicle lithium-ion battery pack manufacturing costs.

PHEV Battery Cost Assessment, PHEV Battery Costing Phase II, 2009 (PDF)

DOE Hydrogen Program Annual Merit Review, Arlington, VA

2009

For the Department of Energy (DOE), led a plug hybrid electrical vehicle (PHEV) Lithium Ion battery technology & manufacturing cost assessment project (Phase II). The assignment required to assess the manufacturing cost on four different cathode materials (NCA, NCM, LiFeP4, and LiMnO4) for sixteen scenarios. The results helped DOE better understand the PHEV battery technical requirements and manufacturing costs.

2008

For a tier one automobile supplier,  led a hybrid electrical vehicle (HEV) Lithium Ion battery technology & manufacturing cost assessment project. The assignment required to assess the HEV battery pack manufacturing costs according to  various cathode active materials and manufacturing scenarios. The results helped the client better understand the HEV battery manufacturing cost drivers.

2007

For the Department of Energy (DOE), led a PHEV Lithium Ion battery technology & manufacturing cost assessment project (Phase I). The assignment required to assess the manufacturing cost on four different cathode materials (NCA, NCM, LiFeP4, and LiMnO4) for sixteen scenarios. The results helped DOE better understand the PHEV battery technical requirements and manufacturing costs.

For the Electric Power Research Institute, led a residential Lithium Ion battery backup power system technology & cost assessment project. The assignment required preliminary energy storage system architect design and detailed manufacturing cost analysis on four different cathode materials (NCA, NCM, LiFeP4, and LiMnO4). The results will help EPRI better understand the lithium ion battery stationary application as well as system costs.

2005

For a major computer manufacturer, led an assignment to develop a Lithium Ion battery pack manufacturing cost model for a major computer manufacturer. The assignment required to design high volume 18650 cell manufacturing process as well as cost analysis. Results from the analysis were used to help the client in a legal case.
