Cooling Performance Optimization of Electric Vehicle Batteries
April 12, 2022
The efficient cooling of battery packs is critical to ensure their optimum performance and lifecycle return on investment. High development costs can be mitigated with access to fast and accurate simulation insights. For example, additional R&D and machining costs are reduced by arriving at an optimized and less complex design, earlier in the design stage.
Watch this guided hands-on demonstration on the design and simulation of cooling plate technology for electric vehicle batteries. In this demo, our simulation specialists show users how to set up and run a complete thermal analysis of a cooling plate including pressure drop and temperature at various coolant flow rates. Users will learn how to quickly complete a parametric design study in SimScale and answer key design questions.

“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.
