Charged EVs Webinar: EV Battery Module Design
Presented in collaboration with:
EV manufacturers need to design for a wide range of battery operating conditions and cooling strategies under the tight deadlines dictated by the growing requests of the electric mobility market. Designing the right solutions, while reducing the need for lengthy and costly physical prototyping, calls for modern simulation tools that don’t require time-intensive manual setup and are not hindered by computational limitations of traditional CAE tools. By adopting simulation tools born in the cloud, the full simulation workflow is shortened from days, sometimes weeks, to hours enabling engineers to explore the full design space and reduce the need for testing.
In this session at the 2022 Virtual Conference On EV Engineering from Charged Electric Vehicles Magazine, we explored the thermal performance of a liquid-cooled battery module by Rimac using cloud-native engineering simulation. Alexander Fischer, co-founder & product manager at SimScale, investigates how the change in different design parameters influences the temperature of battery cells inside the module with the goal of increasing battery life by maintaining an optimal operating temperature distribution. By simulating in the cloud, engineers can run hundreds of design iterations in parallel with the desired accuracy and get design insight 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.
