Battery Testing

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 facility has a wide range of battery testing solutions

First, an optimum cell must be chosen for the application from the large range of chemistries, designs, and sizes. Followed by a design of a control system that must allow 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. At the same time 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.

In brief, these tasks all require testing. Both to acquire the relevant information for development and to validate each stage of integration.
