VW Motorsport Presents: Battery Simulation - An Essential Technology for the ID. R at Nürburgring and the Record at Pikes Peak

The thermal management of batteries for electric vehicles is critical for performance, safety and cost. It must be investigated on both the component and system levels.

Challenges include:

  • Highly dynamic electrical loads from the driving profile of the line.
  • Optimization of battery performance with minimum cooling mass flow.
  • Development of the racing car within a few months.

View this on-demand webinar to learn from Benjamin Ahrenholz, Head of Calculation/Simulation at Volkswagen Motorsport GmbH, how ANSYS software was used for the Volkswagen Motorsport ID R. race car that broke the all-time record at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in June 2018 and how Volkswagen plans to break the electric car record at Nürburgring-Nordschleife later this year.

Discussion topics:

  • Conjugate Heat Transfer in Fluent
  • ECM (Equivalent Circuit Model)
  • LTI-ROM (Linear Time Invariant Reduced Order Model)
  • Twin Builder
