EV TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION TECH TALK WEBINAR SERIES JULY 2022

Mon. 11 July 9:00 CET

Testing Conformance & Interoperability Of EV’s And Charging Infrastructure

EV and EVSE manufacturers and providers are striving to reach that magical tipping point where range, charging time, availability, safety, and price come together to help EVs become the consumer’s preferred choice versus conventional gasoline cars. However, any single design fault in this complex ecosystem will cost money and delays, and no one wants to be late to market. As more EVs roll on the roads, real issues are surfacing, on top of those discovered during R&D. In addition, there is the challenge of learning new and evolving conformance standards.
We will focus on the test of Combined Charging System (CCS) high-power chargers and vehicles. The same principles are also applicable for the Chinese charging standard GB/T, Japanese CHAdeMO, and ChaoJi-1/-2.
This session introduces the concept of harmonized conformance and interoperability testing, current trends in charging technology like bidirectional charging and Megawatt Charging, and the broad Keysight Charging Test Solution portfolio.

Flexible Cell and Component Manufacturing Driven By Digital Twins

The problem is that EVs are relatively new, so not much real-world data has been gathered with respect to battery performance. Physical prototypes and road tests are prohibitively expensive and time-consuming, especially given the urgent nature of this engineering challenge. As with so many other complex, pressing product design problems, the answer lies in engineering simulation.
A digital twin is a virtual replica of a working product, such as an EV battery system, that allows engineers to apply real-world operating parameters and study their impacts. Using sensors mounted on an actual battery, engineers feed real-time performance data into a simulated model of that battery.

Advances In Thermally Conductive, Electrically Insulated Materials For E-Mobility Applications

Ray L. Szparagowski, Technical Director, Automotive and High Performance Plastics, Global Fluid Power Division, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies
Plastics are often used in electric components. For these materials, many requirements such as mechanical properties, temperature capability, flammability, thermal conductivity, and mold ability, among others, are considered in their selection. In addition, electrical resistance is required to isolate the system for safety reasons. In general, plastics are good electric isolators (electrically safe) but poor conductors of heat compared to metals.
In response to this challenge, work in developing Thermally Conductive Electrically Insulated (TCEI) materials has become an important focus for use in E-Mobility applications. Fillers play an important role in material properties of plastics, and Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, with its expertise in filled polymeric systems, has developed multiple new grades of TCEI materials that demonstrate improved conductivity over commercially available choices. The company has quantified the thermal conductivity of these novel materials using a unique finite element model to capture the effect of material choice on temperatures within systems. The model incorporates material orientation and also evaluates effect of air gap between components. Results show that materials with improved thermal conductivity can significantly reduce temperatures in applications.
  • Plastic grade materials that improve thermal management for temperature control and maintain electrical resistance for safety.
  • TCEI (Thermal Conductive Electrically Isolating) grades offer significant improvements in temperature control in E-Mobility applications.
  • FST advanced modeling techniques can evaluate application design and material  impacts on temperatures to address critical hot spots that can occur.
  • E-motor applications such as bobbins and slot liners have shown significant temperature reduction using these new TCEI materials.
