AABC 2014 - AABTAM Symposium: Advanced Automotive Battery Technology, Application and Market - Session 4

Session 4:

Battery Pack Technology

Energy-storage pack design and integration present mechanical, thermal, and electrical challenges beyond those of cell chemistry. In this session, automotive-system integrators will discuss requirements, challenges, and solutions relative to the integration of energy-storage packs into light-duty vehicles, buses, commercial hybrids, and electric vehicles. This will include design, qualification verification, and field experience at the pack level.
