Battery Testing Solutions by HORIBA Automotive an EV Battery Set Up

Turnkey Automotive Battery Testing Solutions for Research, Development and Validation

The development and commercialization of Li-ion cells has made batteries a fundamental system component in a range of industries including transportation, stationary energy storage, and consumer electronics. The requirements of these industries place high demands on Li-ion cells, and their associated battery packs, leading to a development process with high levels of characterization, modelling, design, and validation.

There are several stages of battery pack development

HORIBA MIRA testing facility has a wide range of battery testing solutions

An optimum cell must be chosen for the application from the large range of chemistries, designs, and sizes. A control system must be designed that allows for safe, functional, and optimized use of the cells across the useable operating range. Battery modules and packs must be developed with the required safety and functionality traits while being optimized for space, weight, and cost. Thermal management systems must be integrated into packs to maintain optimal performance. Accurate and computationally efficient simulation models need to be developed to allow for co-design with the system for which the battery is intended. These tasks all require testing, both to acquire the relevant information for development and to validate each stage of integration.

HORIBA Automotive has a range of experience globally to develop testing solutions for the development and validation of battery packs

A test cell using battery testing solutions

Testing facilities in the UK (ABDS) and Japan (E-harbor), along with the University-partnered HiMaC2 facility in California, provide direct cell and pack testing experience which can be used to benefit customers. HORIBA MIRA has proven projects in full battery pack and battery management development in addition to proprietary approaches to efficient cell characterization, degradation analysis, and battery cell simulation modelling. HORIBA Automotive also has the flexible STARS test automation and STARS ENTERPRISE lab management system, and decades of system integration experience of R&D facilities.

We understand the fast-paced nature of the battery industry

HORIBA MIRA is a facility specializing in battery testing solutions

Strong partnerships with University College London and Queens University Belfast, among others, allow for product development and integration of the latest cell technologies, modeling techniques, and testing enhancements. Internal development also ensures continued improvement of our products to meet the latest industry needs, combining our testing experience with the experience of developing in-house battery packs and control systems to understand customer challenges and experiences.




More about Battery Testing

The End-of-Line battery testing system of the Evaluator series is tailored to the needs of complex production processes for batteries used in electric vehicle development.

Why Managing Battery Temperature is Vital...

A key component of electric vehicle performance is effective battery pack design. To accomplish battery pack design, a range of tests are performed across cells, modules, and packs.
