HOW TO ENHANCE COOLING SYSTEM DURABILITY AND LIFETIME IN CURRENT AND UPCOMING EV BATTERY SYSTEMS
Time: 4am Detroit | 10am Stuttgart | 1.30pm Mumbai | 5pm Tokyo

Contamination in cooling air and liquid coolants for electric vehicle battery packs leads to reduced heat dissipation, caused by wear and blocking of narrow cooling channels, leading to faster cell ageing. In upcoming immersion cooling systems, cooling oils must be dried to prevent corrosion.

In this 60-minute session, Dr. Michael Harenbrock of MANN+HUMMEL discusses solutions for contamination control.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Overview of different cooling system architectures for high-voltage battery packs
  • Causes for contamination-induced performance in cooling systems

NEXT-GENERATION E-FLUIDS FOR ULTRA-FAST ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING
Time: 9am Detroit | 3pm Stuttgart | 6.30pm Mumbai | 10pm Tokyo

Ultra-fast electric vehicle charging will require a step-change in battery thermal management performance.

In this presentation, Shell‘s Volker Null and Sundeep Kamath discuss how conventional cooling concepts with water/glycol compare to immersive cooling with next-generation E-fluids under ultra-fast charging.

Shell’s experts also discuss how cutting edge E-fluids offer the potential to rethink system integration with other vehicle components, thus ultimately enabling better engineering solutions for the next generation of electric vehicles.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Understand the benefits of immersive battery thermal management versus conventional cooling with water/glycol
  • How immersive battery thermal management can enable ultra-fast charging and extend battery life, thereby reducing TCO
  • Enhanced battery safety – passing abuse test with no propagation and thermal runaway control
  • New methods for vehicle integration by combining circuits for battery, e-motor and electronic components with a single dielectric fluid
  • Showcase: immersive battery thermal management in automotive applications

 

HOW SILICONE SEALING SOLUTIONS ENABLE GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN ELECTRIC VEHICLE DESIGN
Time: 10am Detroit | 4pm Stuttgart | 7.30pm Mumbai | 11pm Tokyo

Silicone sealing solutions offer reliable, cost-effective options to manufacturers who seek foamed-in-place or cured-in-place gaskets that are dispensed and cure directly on parts. These integrated compression gaskets deliver long-lasting, flexible seals that enable design flexibility for a competitive edge.

In this 60-minute session, Dow‘s Christopher Windiate outlines the critical role silicone sealing solutions play in the electric vehicle design process.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • The case of silicone sealing solutions for EV seals and gaskets
  • Understand the different types of silicone sealing solutions
  • Introduction to dispensed foam gaskets and cure-in-place elastomer gaskets
  • Overview of DFG/CIPG application/process
  • The “decision tree” for selecting the best solution for various applications

 

MANAGING UNSPRUNG MASS – EVERYTHING WE'VE EVER BEEN ASKED
Time: 11am Detroit | 5pm Stuttgart | 8.30pm Mumbai | 12am Tokyo (+1 day)

Chief Engineer Dr. Richard Ford provides unique insight into Protean Electric‘s in-wheel motor technology for electric vehicles and explains how its experts manage unsprung mass.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Introduction to vehicle ride characteristics
  • The effect of changing sprung and unsprung mass and other suspension characteristics
  • Abuse load cases
  • Rotating inertia (effect on steering)
  • Independent subjective evaluations of Protean demo vehicles

REMOTE TEST TRIP EXECUTION FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES - THE WORLD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Time: 4am Detroit | 10am Stuttgart | 1.30pm Mumbai | 5pm Tokyo

With COVID-related global travel restrictions making the in-vehicle testing process more difficult and expensive than ever, engineers are searching for ways to replace outdated and complex manual testing procedures.

In this session, AVL‘s Marijn Hollander and Jaime Rodriguez explain how engineers can utilize a remote test trip solution to fulfil electric vehicle testing requirements from the comfort of their desk. 

Key topics and takeaways:

  • How AVL experts can support your EV testing activities from local networks to minimize your travel efforts and expenses
  • How to efficiently plan and execute calibration testing and validation in the vehicle
  • How to avoid significant amounts of correction loops between the calibration engineer and the driver, whatever their geographic location
  • Live demo: mastering the setting up, execution and reporting of vehicle tests without needing a co-driver

 

CHALLENGES AND BENEFITS OF LITHIUM-ION AND POST-LITHIUM RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES FOR THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE MARKET
Time: 5am Detroit | 11am Stuttgart | 2.30pm Mumbai | 6pm Tokyo

As the performance and cost of Li-ion batteries become the crucial parameter in the mass adoption of electric vehicles, we need to take a deep look into the future generations of EV battery technologies.

The success and the rate of market penetration of EVs will strongly depend on increasing the miles per minute of charging, and the total range obtained on a single charge. To achieve these, significant performance improvement in energy density and high-power charging is critical.

In this presentation, StoreDot CEO Dr Doron Myersdorf reviews the state of the art achievements in both extreme fast charge in Li-ion and extreme energy density in post-lithium technologies such as solid-state batteries.

U.S. ELECTRIC VEHICLE SUPPLY CHAINS: LOCALLY CHARGED?
Time: 10am Detroit | 4pm Stuttgart | 7.30pm Mumbai | 11pm Tokyo

Electric vehicles are a growing part of the automotive industry, and EV batteries remain the key determinant for electrification.

In this presentation, Jeff Horowitz and David Coffin of the U.S. International Trade Commission explore recent changes and trends in EV supply chains and EV demand, describe newly available trade data, and estimate the value added to batteries from EVs sold in the United States.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • EV sales are increasing rapidly as global capacity continues to climb while battery costs decline.
  • Due to newly available international trade data, we now know that Europe is the leading importer of EVs, but the U.S. is up almost 500% year-on-year. The U.S. leads the way in terms of EV exports and does so by a substantial margin.
  • Battery data is more difficult to parse out due to significant limitations in how the data is recorded, but China appears to lead the way in terms of global imports and exports of lithium-ion batteries.
  • Across all EVs sold in the U.S. in 2019, the United States contributes almost 75% of the value-added to the battery powering those vehicles. However, this number varies significantly across vehicle manufacturers, with Tesla leading the way in terms of U.S. value-added.
