The success of electromobility depends heavily on the corresponding battery technologies. In addition to the storage units’ cell chemistries, the »rechargeable battery system« plays a crucial role in the construction of electric vehicles. In order for the system to function safely and on a long-term basis, a multitude of tasks need to be executed that belong to different fields such as cell packaging, cell connectors, battery management system and thermal management, as well as case design and integrated safety and protection circuitry.
The Fraunhofer IVI researchers have gained valuable experience and highly specialized know-how in numerous projects in the fields of
- Testing and characterization of battery cells,
- Modeling and parameter determination,
- State estimation,
- Battery management systems,
- Case design,
- Thermal design and
- Assessment of galvanic high current contacts.
This expertise is available to our clients both for the development of prototypes and for series production.
