Battery Cell and Module Performance and Life Testing
At a glance
Millbrook has a flexible facility for testing EV battery cells and modules.
Most testing is performed on Lithium-ion chemistries, but testing can be safely conducted on almost all chemistries within Millbrook’s battery test laboratories.
Battery Cell Testing
For performance and life testing of battery cells, most test channels are rated at 5V/250A. However, these can be run in parallel for higher currents, for example two channels running in parallel allows testing at 5V/500A. Battery cell testing is conducted to a number of standards including IEC 62660 and QC/T 743.
Battery Module Testing
Millbrook tests the performance and life of battery modules in line with a range of standards including ISO 12405 and QC/T 743.
Module and small pack testing is supported by test channels of:
- 100V/500A/50kW (can be paralleled for higher currents/powers)
Millbrook also performs EV battery life and performance tests on full packs.
Safety systems are in place to minimise risks during battery testing. Millbrook offers a wide range of battery abuse tests for cells, modules and full EV battery packs.
Customers are provided with test reports at the end of testing and are given daily updates on progress, which can include the previous day’s logged data.
