Leveraging Big Data in lithium-ion battery asset management can reduce safety risks, save money and extend battery life, but all Big Data comes with challenges.

In the current era, the digital revolution has brought with it a powerful tool that is transforming the way companies operate and make decisions: Big Data. NCPOWER, a leading manufacturer of sustainable and customised lithium batteries for electromobility with headquarters in Murcia, has this technology for the optimisation of battery performance. 

NCPOWER's latest Big Data Center upgrade goes beyond simple data collection. It integrates artificial intelligence and machine learning to take decision-making to the next level. 

The role of Big Data in battery efficiency

Big Data is not simply a large amount of information; it is the ability to analyse, understand and utilise data on a monumental scale. For NCPOWER, this means that every aspect of its production, from battery design to the supply chain, is supported by advanced data analytics.

One way to understand this is to look at what the famous 5 Vs of Big Data mean: volume, variety, velocity, value and veracity. Each of these elements are essential and highlight the challenges in this area.

Let us look in more detail at the 5 V's mentioned above:

1. Volume

In the context of Big Data, "Volume" is about the magnitude of data, from Terabytes to Pettabytes. In the battery universe, battery management systems (BMS) generate data, and while a single BMS produces a manageable amount, the accumulation of historical data from multiple subsystems can reach Terabyte scales.

For example, a domestic PV storage system might have 1-4 modules (5kWh to 15kWh) sending data, while a large-scale battery storage unit might have thousands of modules and range from 50kWh to 500MWh sending data continuously. This increase in size and complexity can result in large volumes of data, presenting challenges for efficient storage and proper information management.

2. Variety

Having a large volume of data is challenging enough, but having variety within that data increases the complexity.

The data generated by batteries varies according to the application: a home storage system may provide information on current, voltage and solar energy, while an electric bus provides data on speed, power, voltage and current.

To address this complexity, it is vital to consider the variety of data from the initial stages of designing a data pipeline. Implementing concepts such as the 'data lake', a non-relational storage method, offers flexibility by supporting different data formats. This approach is essential to anticipate and manage the diversity of data that may emerge as new types of battery systems evolve and are introduced.

3. Speed

In the field of battery data processing, "Speed" is crucial to perform real-time or near real-time analysis. In battery systems, especially with more computationally intensive safety algorithms, the ability to compute quickly is essential to prevent critical failures.

Historically, the battery management system handled this speed internally, but now, with the evolution of algorithms and the need for faster analysis, cloud computing becomes essential. This allows speed to be maintained in the embedded BMS algorithms, avoiding delays in results and improving security.

4. Value

Having abundant data is only the first step; the real wealth comes from analysing this data effectively and being able to deliver value. This is where you unlock the potential to:

  • Reducing security risks and related costs
  • Information on key decisions in the supply chain
  • Collateral monitoring
  • Battery life extension

By analysing information continuously, unplanned downtime and other risks are avoided. In addition, it improves profitability and also benefits the environment.

In short, value is generated not only by having data, but by leveraging it to make informed, strategic decisions that strengthen the profitability and sustainability of battery assets:

We get clarity on the operational performance of batteries when compared to the manufacturer's specifications. 

  • We analyse the expected value and whether there is an adequate return on assets.
  • We see whether electrics meet the warranty conditions for end customers.
  • In addition, we evaluate which battery suppliers perform best in their operating conditions and charging routines.

Continuous safety monitoring is also carried out to prevent critical failures and reduce operational risk. We use advanced ageing models based on machine learning to predict battery degradation with certainty, enabling the creation of robust business plans. 

5. Truthfulness

Data veracity can become challenging due to the wide variety and massive volumes of data. A voltage considered an outlier in one system may be completely normal in another.

To address this, it is crucial to add context to the Battery Management System (BMS) data through metadata describing the battery system. This metadata provides essential boundary conditions for future accuracy checks, ensuring that the data is interpreted correctly.

Understanding that battery data is embedded in the Big Data paradigm is the first step. Acting accordingly, by developing data channels that handle volume, variety and velocity, is critical to ensure accuracy.

Conclusion

In short, NCPower's latest Big Data Center upgrade represents not just a technological evolution, but a comprehensive strategy to address Big Data challenges. The company doesn't just collect data. It uses it effectively to make informed decisions, drive efficiency and lead the lithium-ion battery industry into a sustainable and profitable future.

In the evolution towards electric mobility, lithium batteries have assumed a leading role as the engine of the automotive revolution. However, beyond efficiency and performance, safety stands as the fundamental pillar underpinning confidence in electric vehicles. This article explores the safety of lithium batteries in automobiles in depth, unravelling the crucial challenges and innovative solutions that are shaping the future of safe electric driving.

The finances of some major automotive companies were affected by problems related to defective batteries in electric vehicles in 2020 and 2021. Beyond the heavy losses caused by such unforeseen events, today's post looks at the manufacturing and safety measures taken by NCPOWER and how they are keeping their 100% batteries safe and incident-free to date under strict control measures.

1. Quality

To operate safely, batteries must be produced with the utmost care and precision, from the processing of active materials to cell manufacturing and pack assembly.

Rigorous quality management, from goods receipt to final testing, is the only solution to control manufacturing defects.

In the field of electric vehicles there are two major challenges: on the one hand, many intermediate companies do not have the complete information, nor the ability to influence the quality of the cells and packs they purchase. In today's market, the simple ability to purchase batteries from a quality supplier may outweigh any quality management certification. Even the most stringent quality management measures do not guarantee 100% detection of faults.

In view of this fact, in addition to the aforementioned quality we must design systems risk prevention measures to ensure maximum safety.

2. System design

Battery systems incorporate multiple layers of protection, which serve to:

  • Maintain the battery in its intended period of operation.
  • Protect it from external damage
  • Minimise the impacts of potential individual cell failures

These measures include passive safety componentsas robust packaging to withstand knocks and bumps. hermetic sealing against fluid ingress, which act as final resources to reduce damage in critical situations. 

In turn, the Battery Management System (BMS) functions as the brain of lithium-ion battery systems, ensuring that no cell is over- or under-charged, and they bring with them basic status estimation functionalities, including state of charge (SOC) and state of health (SOH). However, BMSs also have shortcomings that need to be addressed: the BMS only sees the cells within the relevant battery pack, has little or no access to historical data or data from other battery systems, and has limited computing power. 

Therefore, NCPOWER carries out preventive analyses by monitoring the technical performance of the batteries. 

3. Cloud-based battery analysis

This approach employs more advanced methods than traditional battery management systems, allowing manufacturers and owners of electric vehicles to identify critical potential failures at an early stage. 

The implementation of cloud-based analytics represents an effective strategy to prevent critical failures and raise safety standards in lithium batteries. This approach not only empowers vehicle manufacturers, but also electric vehicle owners, enabling them to take preventive action before damage occurs. These diagnostics, based on existing field data streams, can be applied to any lithium-ion battery system without the need for product changes.

We scan sensor data for anomalies such as rapidly changing impedances or sudden voltage drops as precursors to thermal events, but the lack of baseline data and ongoing comparisons with similar systems severely limits the value of such analyses.

An example of risk detection thanks to BMS

Consider a hypothetical situation in which an electric car is equipped with an advanced Battery Management System (BMS) designed to monitor and manage the status of each cell in its battery. At a certain point, the BMS identifies an unusual temperature rise in one of the cells during the charging process. This could signal a possible risk of overheating and, ultimately, a fire hazard.

This early detection allows the BMS to take immediate action to reduce the risk. It can adjust the charging current, alert the driver or even temporarily interrupt charging until the situation is resolved. In addition, the system has the ability to store detailed data on this irregularity. This allows for continuous improvement in terms of safety and design.

An example of analysis-based risk detection

There are several ways in which cloud-based analytics can identify safety-critical battery behaviour in advance. Specifically, a robust battery analytics solution should monitor at least 20 safety indicators on a daily basis.

The algorithms capture electrochemical interactions and processes, providing insights into the internal states of the battery. As an illustration, the figure below presents an analysis of lithium inventory loss, a phenomenon closely related to lithium plating. The yellow dotted line indicates a warning period identified by NCPOWER's Safety Manager battery analysis solution, while the red line indicates a critical state.

Model-based safety diagnostics monitor active lithium depletion over time. They generate automatic alerts when certain thresholds (indicated by red and yellow dotted lines) are reached.

Lithium plating is a phenomenon that occurs mainly when a battery is charged at high current rates and low temperatures. It can also occur under what are considered "normal" operating conditions. What is this phenomenon? It is the accumulation of metallic lithium on the anode surface, which has been a significant challenge in the field of lithium-ion batteries for many decades. 

This problem not only leads to a rapid degradation of battery capacity, but can also pose a safety threat. The accumulation of lithium metal can lead to the formation of metallic dendrites and trigger secondary reactions, such as outgassing. This situation results in a depletion of lithium reserves, which are no longer available to participate in the main reaction. Cloud-based safety algorithms, among other functions, must closely monitor the loss of active lithium to accurately predict safety-critical events.

Using this methodology and evaluating various safety indicators, NCPOWER's Safety Manager has successfully prevented more than 50 fire incidents.

What is the next step?

There are several challenges we must overcome to make electric vehicles significantly safer. Cloud-based battery analysis ensures that public perception of EV safety does not become another hurdle to overcome. 

In contrast, the benefits of cloud-based software that examines battery operational data go beyond providing an additional layer of security. They also lower business risks and supply chain costs. At the same time, they increase sustainability and accelerate innovation.

The electric vehicle is experiencing strong growth worldwide due to the increased use of sustainable mobility, the reduction in battery prices, the growing investment of major car manufacturers in the battery supply chain and the emergence of new manufacturers. In the case of the Spanish company NCPOWER, which, in just four years of history, already has a presence in 20 markets and is in full global expansion.

When a company comes to us looking for a lithium battery solution, whether it is to switch from a lead-acid battery or to resolve problems with their current supplier, it is important that they understand how we work at NCPOWER compared to most battery manufacturers.

Our approach to work differs from the conventional approach of the lithium battery manufacturers. Rather than simply assembling components, we follow a development process consisting of several key phases to ensure a high-quality, customised solution.

In this way, we avoid problems such as:

  • Lack of flexibility in customisation
  • Long waiting times
  • High costs
  • Company's technical support deficit

At NCPOWER, we avoid these problems by taking a holistic approach to the work process. 

Analysis and specifications

Before starting any order, we invest time in a detailed analysis of the specifications together with the customer. 

  • We analyse the specific application in which the lithium battery will be used. 
  • We evaluate the power consumption of the application in detail to correctly size the capacity of the lithium battery.
  • We consider the size and weight of the battery, as well as the production processes of each customer. 
  • We care about meeting our customers' needs in terms of battery status information. 
  • We determine the type of charger required according to the set charging times.
  • We use our Battery Balancing System to program the electronics of the lithium batteries. 

This allows us to know and understand the specific needs of each customer and design a customised lithium battery that is perfectly suited to your application.

In-house design and manufacture

Unlike other manufacturers, at NCPOWER we take care of the entire design and manufacturing process of lithium batteries. We do not rely on third parties for lithium cells or control electronics. This gives us greater flexibility and control over the quality and performance of our products.

Customisation and optimisation

During the development process, we focus on key aspects such as power consumption, size, weight and the customer's production requirements. We tailor the battery capacity and electronic programming to ensure optimal performance and seamless integration with the application.

Monitoring and maintenance

Once we deliver the battery, our work doesn't stop. We implement remote control tools and automatic alert systems to monitor the status and performance of the lithium battery continuously. Our BMS connects to the NCPOWER Data Center providing accurate and constant information.

This allows us to detect and solve potential problems before they affect the vehicle's performance.

In short, our work process is based on personalised attention to customer needs, in-house manufacturing and continuous monitoring to ensure optimal performance and a trouble-free experience. 

At NCPOWER, we strive to provide superior lithium battery solutions that drive the transition to more efficient and sustainable electric vehicles.

Long hours in-house to deal with customer support requests? The process of understanding what is happening and gathering the information needed to fix the problem is often cumbersome and can be time-consuming. In addition, some of the problems technicians are presented with may not be the company's responsibility, making the time investment even more frustrating. It is therefore important to consider how much time is wasted on these tasks in order to improve the efficiency of the service and reduce the workload of the technicians.

At NCPOWER, we understand that in the automotive sector, information often passes through different departments before reaching those directly responsible. Something similar to the broken telephone game we played as children can happen, from the original message to the one that reaches the end of the chain, the result can be altered.

If we expose here one of the situations that you have surely experienced in recent days, we could cite for example the following: a user of a light commercial vehicle has the feeling that the battery is draining faster than usual and starts the search to determine the cause of the anomaly and contact the right person to solve the problem. However, there are many possible reasons for the problem, and one of them may simply be that the battery has been misused or that there is simply a bad connection.

We often see situations where the fault is passed from department to department and finally reaches the Service Manager with a generic description of the problem such as "the battery is not working". The nuances and ideas that would help to detect the anomaly and its possible solution have been lost.

To be honest, when it comes to traditional batteries it is virtually impossible to detect where the battery failure is coming from and it is difficult to disprove such an assumption. In these situations, an on-site intervention with the right tools is required to perform discharge and charge tests and prove to the customer that everything is already working properly. If you work in the electric vehicle industry, you are probably familiar with receiving false reports in the technical support department.

This is where it comes into play and remote control becomes essential. This means that the actual and precise data of the lithium battery is known at all times. This enables the technical team to carry out a thorough analysis and take action at any time.

From NCPOWER we offer the solution to the aforementioned problem. The tasks of time optimisation, early detection of risks, savings in operating costs and increased productivity of the company and users of the battery packs are solved by our NC-DATA CENTER.

The NCPOWER Data Centre 

The NC-DATA CENTER provides an overview of the performance of each lithium battery, making it possible to evaluate its efficiency and improve its use to optimise operating times and costs.

We have created the NCPOWER Data Center software to monitor on a daily basis the exact usage of each lithium battery installed in any electric vehicle. We also have a web portal that provides detailed information on the state of charge, Ah delivered, duration and thermal management of each NCPOWER lithium battery installed. 

The key feature of the NCPOWER Data Center is the automatic monitoring of battery data in real time. 

As well as allowing us to optimise battery performance, the system sends us warning reports on the use of each battery so that we can anticipate any eventuality before it occurs.

This process helps us optimise battery packs and eliminate false reports. In addition, the NCPOWER Data Center collects and analyses usage data from electric vehicles equipped with the new NCPOWER lithium batteries, improving work efficiency and enabling customers to optimise the performance of their cars. 

"These benefits make manufacturers working with NCPOWER batteries more competitive in the market and therefore able to guarantee longer-lasting, more stable and safer battery performance.

Take the leap to this new technology and get the best performance for your electric vehicles with lithium batteries including remote control and top quality!

Opting for a lithium battery for electric vehicles requires a large outlay, but is it worth it? The price of a lithium battery ranges from between 3 and 20 thousand eurosTo what extent does it make sense to make the leap to this technology that costs almost twice as much? It all depends on the return on investmentSo let's look at the implications, and all the benefits, of this type of solution.

Is the price of the LifePO4 Lithium Battery worth it?

The automotive industry is advancing rapidly, and many are asking whether it is justified to pay more for lithium batteries. Compared to lead-acid, they are much more expensive. However, there are several good reasons to consider them a good investment. 

1. A longer service life

When calculating whether the price of the lithium battery is a good investment, it should be taken into account that it lasts up to ten years. This is a key point to see how much the purchase will pay for itself. In addition to the possibility of prolonged use, this also means that the vehicle could be sold with its functional battery half a decade later.

A battery of NCPOWER with the use recommended in our manual can reach 4,000 charge cycles, 4 times more than the maximum number of charges that traditional batteries reach.

Batteries with shorter lifetimes need to be replaced more frequently and at least two lead-acid batteries may be needed to last as long as a lithium-ion battery.

2. Longer execution times

With this energy solution, you can drive longer before you need to recharge. 

  • Lithium-ion batteries typically run for about 7.2 hours before needing a charge. And they can be safely discharged to 20 % of their capacity. 
  • Lead acid batteries, on the other hand, require charging after approximately 5.4 hours of use. And they can only be safely discharged to 30 % of their capacity.

This means that the electric vehicle will perform better throughout its lifetime.

3. Shorter charging time

Being able to get the battery you need in less time is certainly another great advantage of lithium batteries. In addition, some lithium EV batteries also have the ability to partially charge in less time, which is useful if you need to charge the battery quickly before a short trip.

On the other hand, lithium-ion batteries take 1 to 2 hours to charge. They also allow for partial charges, while lead-acid batteries require 8 hours to charge and another 8 hours to cool down. This means that the true amount of time needed for a lead acid battery to charge and return to operation is closer to 16 hours.

4. Lower labour costs

As a business investment, no doubt reduce costs Electric vehicles have fewer moving parts and do not require oil changes, filters or spark plugs.

5. More safety for the driver

The lead-acid battery contains sulphuric acid and other chemicals that are potentially dangerous to people. Lithium batteries, on the other hand, are much safer in this respect. However, there may be other risks, such as fire, if the right battery is not chosen. manufacturer adequate. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, electrifying vehicles with lithium-ion batteries is certainly a smart investment. No solo dura más, mejora la productividad y ahorra costes, sino que también ofrece una gran seguridad and is better for the environment.

With the demand for electric vehicles on the rise, the market for lithium batteries for electric vehicles is also growing. This means that investment in lithium batteries for electric vehicles can offer a long-term growth opportunity. 

Lithium batteries mainly differ from traditional batteries in their performance level, service life, energy profile and because they are virtually maintenance-free. But this is only part of their advantages. There is one more reason to switch to lithium and that is that this technology is much more environmentally friendly than the more familiar lead-acid batteries. 

While it is true that the application of lithium-ion batteries brings huge savings in operating costs and increased productivity for companies, another great advantage is that thanks to the low carbon footprint of Li-Ion technology, a large amount of energy is produced with low CO2 emissions. 

Undoubtedly, lithium batteries with NCPOWER System are more sustainable and environmentally friendly, as they are designed with eco-friendly technology developed by our R&D team that is constantly researching, testing and improving the development of our batteries to offer the best solution to the market and contribute to the care of the environment. 

In addition to the above, the recycling process of lithium batteries is becoming standardised and in the future it will be possible to reuse most of the raw materials of lithium batteries. In fact, Redux Recycling GmbH in Bremerhaven (Germany) are already technically able to reuse 70% of lithium-ion battery raw materials per year and recycle more than 10,000 tonnes. 

Lithium is no longer the future, it is the present. It's time to switch to lithium. Will you join this change and therefore take better care of our planet?
