Introduction to Battery Pack Design, Integration, and Validation in China C1236

New energy requirements for China"s vehicle market are significantly increasing battery system development. This rapid increase in battery development is elevating the importance of optimized battery system design, integration, and validation. Once the vehicle platform is determined, the vehicle must realize benefits from an optimized battery system design that includes enhanced acceleration speed, stable performance, long life, and desired range.

This comprehensive 2 day seminar introduces participants to system level design considerations, including battery and vehicle interface requirements, battery design and production validations, design changes and the inevitable performance compromises that must be addressed when implementing these technologies. This seminar begins with vehicle level battery requirements and analysis of the battery-vehicle interface followed by an in-depth study of system electronics, thermal management, performance, and CAN communication requirements.

Learning Objectives
By attending this training program you will be able to:
  • Analyze battery system design parameters and their vehicle performance effects
