Managed-risk fire protection concept for stationary Li-ion battery energy storage systems in data centers

Since their market launch in the early 1990s, lithium-ion batteries have found their way into a wide variety of applications. Because of their characteristics – a combination of high energy materials with highly flammable electrolytes – an early and reliable fire detection is a must when designing fire protection systems for Li-ion battery systems. Rapid extinguishing is also essential and can be ensured by the use of automated extinguishing systems using an appropriate agent. This paper discusses the development of a managed-risk fire protection concept for stationary Li-ion battery energy storage systems.
