Gamma Technologies has acquired the battery modeling software package AutoLion from EC Power. AutoLion, a predictive, physics-based simulation software that models the internal electrochemical processes of Li-ion batteries, will augment GT-SUITE, Gamma Technologies’ multi-physics automotive-related CAE system simulation tool.
Battery suppliers and OEMs use AutoLion for 1D and 3D battery analysis and design. It includes a comprehensive electrochemical database for many different materials and chemistries used in Li-ion batteries, and its capabilities include:
- Evaluation of different battery chemistries (including mixed chemistries) and cell designs under a range of conditions
- Modeling of chemistry-specific degradation mechanisms
- Prediction of battery aging over a wide range of operating conditions
- Safety simulation (resistance to abuse)
AutoLion will now be integrated into Gamma’s GT-SUITE and GT-DRIVE+ products. This allows the battery models to be used as an integral part of vehicle system simulations for battery performance and thermal modeling and to predict battery life. The technology can be used for modeling electrification concepts such as hybrids, battery EVs and fuel cell vehicles.
