AVL is the world's largest independent company for the development of powertrain systems with internal combustion engines as well as instrumentation and test systems.
With rising market demand for Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries to power electric vehicles, AVL needed to identify the best way to package its customers’ battery cells for optimum thermal and electrical performance.
Dassault Systèmes Response
AVL employed the electro-thermal capabilities in Abaqus Unified
FEA, coupled with their proprietary software, to capture the
characteristics of Li-ion cells and analyze thermal behavior in
different battery system configurations.
Good correlation between FEA models and lab measurements
gives AVL the confidence to develop increasingly complex battery
models, enabling them to offer their clients more sophisticated
performance evaluations and product design recommendations.
