Battery System Design for NEV Applications C1526

In recent years, rapid developments in the field of new energy vehicles (NEVs) in China have created a need to advance the new energy products currently available. The technology requirements for the NEV market have significantly increased the development of battery systems. This rapid increase in battery development has elevated the importance of optimized battery system design, integration, and validation. For a manufacturer, once the vehicle platform is determined, the vehicle must realize benefits from an optimized battery system design that includes enhanced reliability, power performance, long life, desired drive range, low cost and recycling. The battery system is a key factor in NEV development for manufacturers.

This comprehensive two day seminar introduces participants to the basic knowledge of battery system design and development including the development process, mechanical design, testing and verifying of vehicle powertrain battery systems. Pack design, integration and validation will be discussed. In addition, it will cover battery material evaluation, battery cell selection, battery module development, battery management system (BMS) design as well as development and failure analysis of the battery system. It is recommended that engineers looking to learn about battery system development as well as ways to improve technology capabilities for developing new energy products attend this seminar.
