Optimized Battery Management Solutions through Simulation
Time: March 22, 2022, 10:20AM - 11:00AM EST
Speaker: Rolf Reinelt (Lead Application Engineer)
Dr. Reinelt was born in Berlin and studied Aeronautics at TU Berlin and Cranfield Institute of Technology before gaining a PhD from TU München. Dr. Reinelt joined Ansys in 2002 based out of Germany in Darmstadt and is currently a Lead Application Engineer focusing on Battery Management.
During this session, hear how introducing new processes and workflows using engineering simulation tools can optimize, validate and increase efficiency of your Battery Management System (BMS). Discover:
- The use of a cell selection tool to design a more efficient battery based on existing cells.
- Workflows to calculate thermal fields within battery modules and packs to better manage the thermal properties of the battery.
- How deriving Reduced Order Models (ROM) of the thermal behavior of the battery pack directly from a 3D field simulation causes system simulation of drive cycles to become more efficient.
- Why Model-based system engineering and software development provides huge advantages for testing, code quality and optimization. And how designing the BMS software using this method allows for qualified C code consistent with the model, enabling a smooth integration with BMS system simulation.
- The impact on the battery pack through structural and impact analysis, including adopting a new approach to thermal runaway to ensure vehicle and passenger safety.
