Boeing's Electrical Problem: Bad lithium-ion batteries on the Dreamliner could have negative repercussions throu...

January 25 , 2013 – Vol.17 No. 45 BOEING'S ELECTRICAL PROBLEM. by Bruce Mulliken, Green Energy News With a fascination of aeroplanes and a dedication to energy efficiency, I watch the still-unfolding story of the battery problems on Boeing's 787. Burning and smoldering batteries aboard two Dreamliners led to the global groundings of the aircraft. The 787 was designed to save 20 percent on fuel compared with similarly-sized aircraft. The lithium-ion batteries were incorporated in the aircraft to save a few dozen pounds in weight, about equivalent to a couple of checked bags. According to the latest reports the batteries in question experienced a short circuit in a least one cell, as well as a thermal runaway of the batteries. In that situation one cell gets too hot, causing the neighboring cell to overheat, etc, etc. Overheating, can cause cell cases to melt, exposing the c...
