High voltage power distribution and EV charging for commercial vehicles (Webinar)

Electric commercial vehicles need to drive farther and charge faster to be an effective solution for fleets. But what does this mean for system safety, reliability & scalability? How best to optimize this power distribution within the system and into the charging infrastructure?

EV manufacturers and fleets need reliable technology to handle higher power levels while delivering the safest vehicle systems possible, and fleets need this technology to be serviceable and cost effective. In addition, fleet owners need scalable, compatible and networked charging to keep their vehicles on the go.

Join this presentation at next week’s Virtual Conference on EV Engineering, presented by Eaton, where we will discuss the unique requirements and solutions for high voltage power distribution in electric commercial vehicles to help improve platform flexibility, system efficiency, serviceability. In addition, as fleets receive these vehicle, we will also discuss how they can deploy scalable, reliable and flexible fast charging solutions to lower their total cost of ownership (TCO) as well uptime to meet their business goals.

Drive Performance Through Battery Cell Chemistry

The demand for safer, longer-lasting, faster charging, cheaper and energy-dense batteries is disrupting the entire industry. Rapid battery evolution, affordability, sustainability and recyclability are key to delivering the next generation of EVs. The automotive and transportation sector is transforming their fleets to electric cars, electric buses, and electric trucks. Auto OEMs, start-ups, battery makers and specialty chemical companies are all investing large amounts of resources for groundbreaking innovations. Time is of the essence and accelerating innovation is key.

Launching and managing a battery innovation program presents a unique set of challenges due to the rapidly shifting consumer expectations, evolving public energy options and of course, the amazing advances that are happening at what seems like an almost daily pace. Coupled with that is an acute need to source scientific talent that is well versed in both the language of battery development and the specific contours associated with the wider transportation sector that is driving battery development.

This webinar, presented by Dassault Systemes, will cover case studies on design, optimization and innovation of battery chemistry, as well as design-for-manufacturing approaches.

Webinar highlights:
• Virtual twin of battery cell and simulation of cell performance
• Validated use-cases covering challenges, solutions and results
• Driving battery innovation programs from ideation through to delivery
• Engagement framework with our Customers to drive performance of cell for the next generation

Choosing The Right Tape When Designing for Electrical Insulation in EV Batteries

Choosing a dielectric protection barrier during the design and construction of EV battery modules and packs is a critical engineering decision. With an optimized solution, engineers can maximize pack energy density, improve vehicle reliability, and enhance consumer safety.

In this session, presented by Max VanRapporst and Scott Kruskinski of Avery Dennison Performance Tapes, we will discuss the comparative advantages of using pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes versus coatings to create dielectric barriers. He’ll explain how to choose a specific dielectric tape based on the application, including pack electrical insulation, cell wrapping, cooling plates, and insulation around flexible busbars. He’ll also discuss how proper tape selection can help maximize scale-up and large-volume production. Finally, Max will highlight some of the potential pitfalls and failure modes that can occur when the wrong dielectric protection barriers are chosen.
