Techniques for prediction of cell- and casing behaviour after the initial trigger event for thermal propagation

Kick-Off: 3rd July, 2024 Do you know…
  • … what happens at a thermal runaway event for different battery cell chemistries? Will a flame result? What temperatures will occur?
  • … how will the hot released gasses spread through the battery pack and put thermal and mechanical
  • … how to predict whether a battery pack will safely survive a thermal runaway event according to regulations?
  • … how effective different shielding materials avoid thermal propagation?
What you‘ll get: The project provides know-how and predictive methods for the events happening after a first thermal runaway of a battery cell.
  • WP1: Analysis of state of the art and future battery cell types.
  • WP2: Analysis of thermal runaway cell to cell propagation behaviour for different cell types
  • WP3: Analysis of hot gas development and flow through the battery pack, pressure build-up and temperature loading on the battery casing structure.
  • WP4: Example thermo-mechanical CAE analysis for different tray and lid layouts, using different materials.

Potentials for composite materials and technologies in the energy transition market

Kick-Off: 8th October, 2024 Electric motors are playing an increasingly important role, especially for future mobility. High-speed permanent magnet motors offer several advantages, including high power density and efficiency. Did you know?
  • Providing high torque at high speeds is the key to powertrain development.
  • Composite-based rotor sleeves are particularly suitable for securing the magnets at high rotational speeds and preventing them from lifting.
  • Fixing with composite rotor sleeves enables a smaller installation space and reduces eddy current losses compared to metal reinforcements.
  • Some manufacturers of battery electric vehicles, drones and eVTOLs are already using composite rotor sleeves to improve the efficiency and power density of electric motors.
What you‘ll get: Expert assessment and evaluation of potentials for composite materials and technologies in the field of rotor sleeves for high-speed electric motors.
  • WP1: Screening of current and future applications, research landscape and market situation.
  • WP2: Impact analysis on requirements, material, process and design layout.
  • WP3: Business case scenarios for future design- and manufacturing concepts of selected highlight-applications.
