Battery Modeling and Simulation

One of the key elements of automotive electrification is electric storage technology. Electric storage systems come with a variety of designs and chemistry to fit with the large spectrum of applications, vehicles, and expected performance levels. As a consequence, designing, sizing and selecting the most appropriate storage system always results in a trade-off between key attributes like range, reliability, size, weight, and lifetime.

Siemens Digital Industries Software offers simulation solutions together with engineering services to support multi-scale battery modeling and testing, from micro-structure electrochemistry, cell component to battery systems model, and overall battery performance evaluation during integration.

Developing competitive battery electric vehicles (BEVs) for mass markets is strong on the agenda of automotive OEMs. But the big challenge still remains on one key system: the battery. Designing a battery pack is not only a question of design and size optimization to fit within the targeted vehicle packaging. The choice of geometry, chemistry, cell packs, and cooling system has a strong impact on performance, safety, lifetime, and vehicle range. Being able to model different battery pack architectures and simulate the performance within the vehicle context can save considerable development time and push the innovation level forward to meet market expectations.

Siemens Digital Industries Software offers battery modeling and simulation solutions together with engineering and consulting services to accelerate the design and engineering of batteries by virtually exploring design variants and assessing multi-level performance. Our solutions range from system simulation to 3D and CFD simulation, covering the wide scope of engineering domains required for battery systems design. Engineers can easily model various cell chemistry and battery pack designs and evaluate the overall performance in a vehicle context. Our battery modeling and simulation solutions also enable to consider battery charging and thermal management aspects and investigate the best possible control strategies for optimal performance.
