With high-performance electric vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan in production, and several manufacturers slated to release EVs with 800 V battery systems in 2021, using high-voltage battery systems in EVs is no longer just theoretical. The advent of higher-voltage vehicles means the decisions EV designers and OEMs must make when selecting the components used within the battery system are changing.
This webinar covers the ways in which EV OEMS can address the following new challenges and evolving industry standards as battery system voltages continue to increase:
- Performing high-voltage insulation testing at voltages up to five times higher than normal operating voltages to prove designs are well insulated and fail-safe
- Maintaining proper creepage distance to prevent arcing and dangerous sparking
- Protecting components from surge voltages and high operating temperatures
- Eliminating the risk of mechanical cracking in the harsh operating environment inside an EV with flexible AEC-Q200 certified components
The webinar, hosted by Charged on January 13, 2021, at 11am EST, will include a live Q&A session.
