As OEMs are electrifying their vehicle fleets, electrical component modeling is becoming increasingly critical to the design of electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles (xEV).  

Problems surrounding thermal management are one of the largest challenge areas faced when designing electrified vehicles.  Poor thermal management can result in weaker product performance, reduced lifecycle and, in a worst-case scenario, thermal runaway events in which serious damage to the product and/or user can occur.

Learn more about how thermal conductivity measurement from C-Therm’s Trident instrument platform can be incorporated into ThermoAnalytics’ advanced TAITherm 3D modeling software for improved design.  For example, in modeling the loads on the battery pack it is important to consider battery thermal management strategies to maintain the pack in an optimal operating range, especially for adverse thermal conditions in both hot and cold environments.

 In doing so, it is crucial to have a proper understanding of the thermal conductivity of the materials used in the construction of the battery pack.  This webinar will show how thermal conductivity plays an important role in the design optimization of battery packs and electric motors in xEVs. 

It is recommended to engineers, scientists and product managers involved in the development of EVs and related components.

In this live webinar, we will cover:

  • How to improve accuracy of 3D xEV electric motor and battery pack models
  • Case studies that illustrate the most important modeling aspects of xEV design
  • Best practices in measuring thermal conductivity of battery packs, phase change materials, potting compounds and conductive polymers
  • When it is important to consider anisotropic properties of materials
  • Q&A to follow with guest speakers
