We will discuss enabling the MODSIM approach across multiple disciplines and the values offered for cutting-edge engineering of battery systems across various industry verticals.

Development Drivers

In the dynamic field of battery innovation, several factors drive the development and enhancement of battery technologies, shaping the future of energy storage and usage. One of the primary drivers includes the rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs), necessitating better battery performance for longer range and faster charging—a key area where efficient 3D modeling and simulation (MODSIM) can make a significant impact. The shift towards renewable energy sources like solar and wind power highlights the need for efficient energy storage, where batteries play a crucial role. Consumer electronics also demand devices with longer battery life and quicker charging capabilities.

Green, Fast, and Safe

The battery industry is rapidly evolving, driven by technological advancements and changing market demands. There’s an increasing focus on green products, with efforts to make batteries more sustainable and recyclable. Batteries are becoming integral in renewable energy systems for storing excess energy. Faster charging technology is critical for electric vehicles; however, speedy charging increases thermal challenges, another excellent area for a MODSIM approach to make a positive impact. There’s also a heightened focus on safety, and the list of regulations and standards continues to grow.

Design and Engineering Hurdles

The webinar will highlight how battery innovation efforts face several significant engineering challenges. Safety is paramount, especially for high-energy batteries, to prevent overheating, fires, and explosions. Thermal testing in a digital environment with 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation can help minimize these issues. Batteries often perform poorly in extreme temperatures, so developing batteries that operate efficiently across a broader range of temperatures is essential. These challenges and more are the focus of research and development in both academic and industrial settings.

The Power of the Cloud

The webinar will cover how using 3D CAD modeling and simulation (MODSIM) together enables you to identify potential problems and innovative design opportunities at an earlier stage. This streamlines design efficiency. Also, spotting issues early in product development helps avoid delays and unexpected costs during production.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the technology infrastructure to manage your team’s people, data, and documents, including suppliers, manufacturers, and customers. Plus, you can securely access, manage, and share SOLIDWORKS data and 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation results from any location with an internet connection.
