Automotive Engineering - April 2019 - Intro

Autonomous vehicles require
batteries with lasting power.

Visualization of the temperature profile
in a liquid-cooled Li-ion battery pack.
The stage of the load cycle, potential, local concentration,
temperature, and direction of the current all affect the aging
and degradation of a battery cell. This is important to consider
when developing autonomous vehicles (AVs), which rely on
a large number of electronic components to function. When
designing long-lasting batteries that are powerful enough
to keep up with energy demands, engineers can turn to
The COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used for simulating
designs, devices, and processes in all fields of engineering,
manufacturing, and scientific research. See how you can apply
it to optimizing battery designs for self-driving cars.
