Cylindrical lithium-ion batteries are widely used in consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and energy storage applications. However, safety risks due to thermal runaway-induced fire and explosions have prompted the need for safety analysis methodologies. Though cylindrical batteries often incorporate safety devices, the safety of the battery also depends on its design and manufacturing processes. This study conducts a design and process failure mode and effect analysis (DFMEA and PFMEA) for the design and manufacturing of cylindrical lithium-ion batteries, with a focus on battery safety.
