Battery Solutions for Engineering and Testing

E-Mobility is a rapidly moving topic that requires highly professional solutions. Standards, regulations, market requirements and customer expectations are changing quickly. Thus, durable and reliable batteries are required to satisfy those needs and expectations.

AVL Approach

As a privately owned company AVL is always operating independently and hence has access to different cell and battery technologies and is not limited to a special chemistry or cell design. With our global battery team we have the possibility to support battery projects around the world.

We take care about the most important topics for the development of tomorrow’s batteries.
The focus on a dedicated range of services and products allows the development of batteries from the assessment and selection of a single cell up to SOP of a fully validated battery pack.

While focussing on performance as well as on mechanical and thermal integration of the pack
into the vehicle, the overall cost of the battery at volume production stage is always considered. As of today, questions regarding the technology are in everyone’s focus, but low cost design, serviceability and recyclability become more and more important as the e-mobility matures.

AVL’s Product Portfolio for Battery Development And Testing

Testing & Benchmarking:

A variety of highly instrumented cell and battery test beds allows us to test and benchmark the full range from high power and high energy cells up to full battery packs with 500 kW power.

Thermal & Mechanical Simulation:

All electrical and thermal parameters that are obtained by advanced cell measurements are used to parameterize our dedicated electro-thermal models for best thermal performance of batteries.

Battery Design Engineering & Battery Build

Battery design experts take care of all mechanical and electrical integration aspects and make sure that the design meets volume production requirements.

Battery Management System (BMS) Development

AVL’s proprietary battery management system assures a safe operation of the battery pack according to ISO 26262 while maximizing the battery performance.

Battery System Validation

With battery experts and a dedicated methodology in the field of reliability, durability and validation, lifetime and warranty targets are assessed.

Battery Testing & Emulation

All expertise in the field of battery development helps us to develop advanced solutions for battery testing and emulation (AVL E-Storage TesterTM and EmulatorTM).Furthermore we deliver turn key solutions for entire battery labs to our customers.
