Understanding The Thermal And Safety Challenges In Next-Generation Battery Packs

Bret Trimmer, Applications Engineering Manager at NeoGraf Solutions, LLC

Speaker Bio | Company Bio

  • The ability to consistently fast charge Electric Vehicles is a primary focus area for battery pack designers. Surprisingly, the main factor in achieving this goal is thermal management.
  • During the fast charge operation, the amount of energy that can be taken in and the number of times a cell can be fast charged is greatly determined by the heat generated and removed during the charging operation. The primary thermal management material in use today to spread this heat is aluminum. Unfortunately, aluminum is thick, dense, and is a poor conductor of heat.
  • When used for demanding thermal goals, such as fast charging and extended driving range, the battery pack becomes too large and heavy to be practical for EV use. For the same heat spreading as aluminum, flexible graphite heat spreaders are only half the thickness and one third of the weight.
  • Already widespread in the world’s most advanced electronic devices, graphite enables fast charging and increased energy density, while making the battery pack smaller and lighter.

Efficient BMS Testing Throughout the BMS Development Lifecycle

Peter Blume, CEO   Speaker Bio | Company Profile

Grant Gothing, CTO Speaker Bio

Many EV suppliers utilize inefficient approaches to testing electronic subsystems, including the battery management system (BMS). For example, use of either live li-ion cells or conventional power supplies and loads limits the safety, repeatability, efficiency and test coverage. Use of traditional, vendor-defined test systems limit the flexibility and scalability of the system.

  • BMS test techniques to address issues using commercially available cell simulation hardware
  • Several different test applications throughout the BMS development lifecycle from R&D test bench, validation through production
  • HIL, HALT/HASS and PCBA manufacturing functional test system examples
  • An open system’s approach to BMS testing throughout the development cycle

Demystifying BMS Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) Testing

Peter Blume, CEO – Speaker Bio | Company Profile

Grant Gothing, CTO – Speaker Bio

Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) testing is a powerful approach to validating many complex automotive ECUs, including the battery management system (BMS). It can dramatically accelerate the battery and electrical systems development for new EV programs, while optimizing the safety, reliability, and performance.  But what comprises a typical BMS HIL Test System, and how do they work?

  • BMS HIL test objectives and benefits
  • Methodologies for validating core functionality and edge-condition responses
  • Instrumentation and connectivity for simulating cells, thermistors, contactors, and other real-world interfaces to the BMS
  • Test software for model execution, closed-loop control, and sequential scripting
  • Intuitive user interfaces for automated and manual control
  • Specific BMS HIL test scenarios for safety, balancing, control algorithms, and SoC/SoH estimation
  • (Optional) Case study
