Charged EVs Webinar: Thermal Optimization Of An EV Battery Pack – Simply Via Browser
Electric vehicle manufacturers need to design innovative battery solutions for a fast-growing customer base with an increasing range of product portfolio requirements while maintaining a leading position in the ultra-competitive EV industry. These challenges can only be met by optimizing the battery pack across all stages of the design cycle with very different levels of simulation UX and integration required between early stage design validation and fully operational digital twins that combine the best of simulation, testing, and real field data. For the simulation world, this calls for flexible yet powerful solutions that provide everything from ease of use, and live expert support to sophisticated, programmatic API access and powerful hardware access.
This session explores two use cases from different ends of the simulation UX and integration spectrum: One battery pack thermal management design validation use case requiring an intuitive simulation UI, high level of automation, and in-product support, and secondly an API-driven geometry optimization study of a cooling plate flow channel. Alexander Fischer, co-founder and product manager at SimScale will walk you through the example projects and provide insights into the application and workflow integration, demonstrating the accessibility and highly scalable nature of cloud-native simulation, including providing designers and engineers the ability to run hundreds of design iterations in parallel with the desired accuracy and get design insights in a timely fashion.
Co-Founder & Product Manager
With a background in computational mechanics and control technology, Alex Fischer worked for 10 years in different product and engineering roles, building a fully cloud and web-based simulation platform. He is a co-founder of SimScale, and leads the company's efforts for thermal management and electronics solutions.
“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
