The Handbook of Lithium-Ion Battery Pack Design: Chemistry, Components, Types, and Terminology, Second Edition, provides a clear and concise explanation of EV and Li-ion batteries for readers that are new to the field. The second edition expands and updates all topics covered in the original book, adding more details to all existing chapters, and including major updates to align with all the rapid changes the industry has experienced over the past few years. The second edition adds two new chapters; the first delves into the processes of module and pack manufacturing, while the second introduces topics that are adjacent to the battery such as charging infrastructure, battery swapping, and charging as a service.

This handbook offers a layman’s explanation of the battery industry and technology, including the history of vehicle electrification and battery technology, describing the various terminologies and acronyms, and explaining how to do simple calculations that can be used in determining basic battery sizing, capacity, voltage, and energy. By the end of reading this book, the reader will have a solid understanding of the terminology around Li-ion batteries and be able to undertake simple battery calculations.

This book is immensely useful to both beginning and experienced engineers alike. The Handbook of Lithium-Ion Battery Pack Design: Chemistry, Components, Types, and Terminology, Second Edition is a reference tool for anyone that is transitioning into the battery industry. Whether you are an electrical or mechanical engineer, chemist, purchasing, sales, executive, or government, it will help you better appreciate the interrelationships between the various battery engineering fields that are required to understand the battery as an Energy Storage System.
