Increasingly stringent CO2 reduction targets at the public and private levels have accelerated the development of clean transportation and renewable energy. Due to the continuous improvement in Li-ion battery technology and concomitant cost decrease, electric vehicles (EV) are increasingly gaining market shares over traditional internal combustion engines (ICE). Simultaneously, increased penetration of intermittent sources of renewable energy is being made possible through the availability of reliable, long-life energy storage. This rapid change in technological platform requires an industry-wide mobilization and shortened development timelines. To accelerate the development of novel battery systems, the transportation and grid industries are increasingly turning to high-fidelity, multi-scale simulation. In this talk, we will discuss how Siemens' Simcenter software suite can assist the battery design process at the micro-structure, cell, pack, and systems scales. • Analysis of systems requirements (vehicle dynamics, grid requirements) • Electrochemical performance • Battery aging and battery safety Who should attend? • System design engineers (transportation, grid storage) • Battery pack engineers • Cell design engineers • Materials engineers • Process design engineers
