Bring Your Battery to Life
Li batteries are temperature sensitive. This means that the temperature affects the battery's performance, lifetime, charging behavior, etc. When developing vehicle batteries, this characteristic must be considered, especially since overheating can quickly become a safety risk.
Cooling concepts must therefore be selected so that they are suitable for both a rise in ambient temperature and temperature increases due to operation.
If the temperature drops below 0°C, the battery management system (BMS) must react to this, as well as to a possible deep discharge. Since both can irreversibly damage the battery and thus lead to a reduction in capacity.
The various concepts can be quickly created and compared using Virtual Twins. As the very image of individual components or even larger units, they enable initial design decisions to be made at an early stage and, above all, based on facts.
At Batemo we create virtual twins of common battery cells to backup battery system development. But why do we partner with AVL? Because only together, we can support our customers along the full battery system process: from electrode recipes to cell design and pack development, to validation testing and in-operation solutions.
