SAE International will stream a free, 60-minute webcast entitled “Accelerating Electric-Vehicle Battery Development and Advanced Simulation” on 21 August at 10 AM US EDT, hosted by ANSYS Inc. Speakers will include Dr. Taeyoung Han, GM Technical Fellow; Mary Fortier, GM Battery Systems Engineering Group Manager; and Lewis Collins, Director of Software Development at ANSYS Inc. GM and ANSYS are members of one of three teams funded by NREL to develop tools to support DOE’s Computer-Aided Engineering for Electric Drive Vehicle Batteries (CAEBAT) program. (Earlier post.)
The panel will explain some of the technical challenges and showcase their recent progress from using the new technology. The webcast will delve into CAEBAT’s new technology that simulates the affect that electrochemical, thermal, fluidal, structural, and control systems have on lithium ion-batteries.
Created for the purpose of shortening the design cycle and optimizing the use of lithium-ion batteries, CAEBAT has seen much improvement over the last three years.
Webcast attendees will be able to engage with the experts during an audience Q&A session that will be moderated by Lisa Arrigo of SAE International.
