Aluminum-doped lithium manganese powders were successfully produced by internal combustion-type spray pyrolysis using metal nitrate solution. As-prepared particles with an average diameter of about 4 μm had a porous microstructure and were nonagglomerated. Chemical analysis showed that the molar ratio of Li/Mn and the content of Aluminum were kept contact with the starting solution concentration. A lithium ion battery module for electric vehicle (EV) was also developed and its performance was examined. A 53 kWh lithium ion battery module was set on an electric microbus, and then its performance was examined.
