Performance Analysis of an Integrated BEV Thermal Management

Fast introducing battery electric vehicles to the market leads to the accumulation of errors and recalls of the vehicle. It can be avoided by simulating battery electric vehicles (BEV) in an integrated manner. Electric vehicle thermal management is key in optimal performance of a vehicle. A drivetrain model is developed integrated with cabin, battery, and … Read more

Integrating Pressure Relief and Breather Devices for Overpressure Mitigation for battery safety. Author: OsecoElfab The rapid growth of Li-Ion batteries in various industries, including electric vehicles, portable electronics, and renewable energy storage has thrown a spotlight onto a critical battery safety concern: thermal runaway and its potential to trigger overpressure explosions. Managing Thermal Runaway To … Read more

Types of Battery thermal management Systems

Battery thermal management (BTMS) systems are of several types. BTMS with evolution of EV battery technology becomes a critical system. Earlier battery systems were just reliant on passive cooling. Now with increased size (kWh capacity), Voltage (V), Ampere (amps) in proportion to increased range requirements make the battery thermal management system a key part of … Read more

Remaining Useful Life

What is Remaining Useful Life (RUL)? Remaining Useful Life (RUL) is a key function declared by the battery management system. As per the title it gives you the remaining predicted lifetime of the battery based on its usage and degradation to the failure threshold [1]. It represents the period from the observation to the end of life … Read more
