Energy humanities is a box of scholarship that, like scientific and electronic humanities prior to it, goals to beat conventional limitations among the disciplines and among educational and utilized study. Responding to becoming public crisis approximately anthropogenic weather switch and the unsustainability of the fuels we use to energy our smooth society, strength humanists spotlight the basic contribution that humanistic insights and techniques could make to parts of research as soon as idea most sensible left to the common sciences.

In this groundbreaking anthology, Imre Szeman and Dominic Boyer have introduced jointly a delicately curated number of the simplest and such a lot influential paintings in power humanities. Arguing that today’s power and environmental dilemmas are essentially difficulties of ethics, behavior, mind's eye, values, associations, trust, and power—all conventional components of workmanship of the arts and humanistic social sciences—the essays and different items featured right here display the dimensions and complexity of the problems the realm faces. Their authors provide compelling probabilities for locating our manner past our present strength dependencies towards a sustainable future.

Die Lithium-Ionen-Batterie wird zukünftig zwei großtechnische Anwendungen dominieren: Hybrid- und Elektrofahrzeuge im Bereich zukünftiger Mobilitätsstrategien und Zwischenspeicher elektrischer Energie im Umfeld der Dezentralisierung der Energieerzeugung.
Das vorliegende Fachbuch stellt das Speichersystem Lithium-Ionen-Batterien in all seinen Facetten vor. Nach einer Übersicht über die heute verfügbaren Speichersysteme werden die Komponenten einer Lithium-Ionen-Batterie - von den Anoden- und Kathodenmaterialien bis hin zu den notwendigen Dichtungen und Sensoren - ausführlich beschrieben; auch die Battery-Disconnect-Unit, das thermische administration und das Batterie-Management-System werden abgehandelt. Ein weiteres Kapitel behandelt die Fertigungsverfahren, die dazu notwendigen Anlagen und den Aufbau einer Fabrik zur Fertigung von Zelle und Batterie.
Die beiden großen Anwendungsbereiche der Lithium-Ionen-Batterie-Technologie, additionally der Einsatz in Hybrid- und Elektrofahrzeugen und die Nutzung als Zwischenspeicher, werden ebenfalls dargestellt, bevor im letzten Kapitel Querschnittsthemen wie Recycling, delivery, elektrische und chemische Sicherheit oder Normung diskutiert werden. Ein umfangreiches Glossar schließt das Buch ab.
Die Zielgruppe
Das Fachbuch wendet sich an alle Personen, die im Umfeld der Lithium-Ionen-Batterie tätig sind: Von Studierenden im Bereich der Energietechnik bis hin zum Geschäftsführer von Zulieferfirmen im Umfeld der Automobilindustrie.
