Designing Batteries for Electric Vehicles: Accelerating Battery Development and Addressing Safety Concerns

Designing batteries for HEV/EV involves many challenges, and designers focusing on different aspects have different requirements. A properly designed thermal management system is crucial and requires knowledge of the cooling system as well as the amount of heat that will be generated by cells within the battery pack. This article discussed how simulation can assist in thermal design at both the cell level (a single battery cell) and the system level (a battery module or a complete battery pack) and accelerate battery development and address safety concerns.
