Battery Engineering for Automotive Applications
Building Better Batteries
December 6-7, 2022 | San Diego, CA
As battery technology continues to improve, so does the need for well-engineered battery systems that take full advantage of the active cell materials. We need to design packs that guarantee a reliable cell performance and integrate battery pack into
vehicles to meet vehicle constraints and ensure safety, reliability, and durability. Cell design, including the choice of non-active components, has a considerable impact on battery performance and reliability. Battery pack design and integration
presents thermal, mechanical, and electrical engineering challenges, almost independent of cell chemistry. Optimizing cell and pack design according to the duty cycle of the application requires a careful balance between cell and pack energy, power,
manufacturability, abuse tolerance, thermal characteristics, and cost.
