Continuous improvements in battery technology has paved the way for adoption in growing number of applications. However, the state-of-the-art graphite anodes remain sensitive to heat dissipation during fast charging or short circuits, and possibly causing inflammation of the battery. This is a limitation for safety critical applications and prevents ultra-high charging rates. In addition, power electronics is required for preventing hazardous and inefficient operating conditions, maximizing, for example, the lifetime of the battery system. Batteries with silicon anodes overcome the limitations of today’s battery technology and enable charging rates of multiple Cs, while operating up to 100 °C and being non-flammable. Nevertheless, this does not reduce requirements for the battery management system (BMS) to control the performance of the battery.
