Design, Develop, and Deliver Winning Battery Technology with 3DEXPERIENCE

Battery technology has come a long way in recent years, but there is still much room for improvement. With the rise of electric vehicles and renewable energy storage, developing better batteries is more important than ever. By implementing a single, connected system for project planning, design and development, and manufacturing and logistics, battery manufacturers are unlocking new opportunities for success. With streamlined project management, reduced time to market and enhanced product quality, discover how 3DEXPERIENCE is driving the future of connected engineering.  

Deliver Winning Battery Technology with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform 

From concept to delivery, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a single, connected and collaborative system for virtual design, simulation, and testing of batteries before they are built in the real world. 

End-to-End Project Planning and Product Lifecycle Management

Recognize Goals and Requirements: Start with a clear understanding of the requirements and goals for the battery. Some requirements include energy density, power density, cycle life, and safety.

Implement Streamlined PLM: Enables teams from across the value network to securely collaborate and innovate together, helping transform market opportunities into marketplace advantages.

Benefit from Data-Driven Project Management: By linking product development data to the project the updated status of any project member’s deliverable is immediately reflected in the project plan. Through “invisible governance” project managers govern the project without interrupting those doing the work.

Ensure Quality Control: Empowers your teams to design in quality and compliance from the start by enforcing common quality processes, supporting global and local regulatory requirements and managing all quality events, such as corrective and preventive actions (CAPA), product nonconformance and audits.

Industry Leading Design Capabilities: From Chemistry to System 

With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform you can design, model, and optimize different battery configurations and chemistries. The platform’s simulation capabilities allow for testing these designs in virtual environments, providing insight into how they will perform in the real world.

Key Capabilities Include:

  • 3D CAD Modeling: Design and model different battery configurations. This includes the ability to create and edit 3D models of the various components of the battery, such as electrodes, separators, and electrolytes
  • Materials Modeling: Learn the properties of different battery chemistries. This includes simulating the behavior of electrodes, separators, and electrolytes under other conditions
  • Simulation and Analysis: Test the performance of different battery designs. This can include testing factors such as energy density, power density, cycle life, and safety
  • Multiphysics simulation: Simulate different physical phenomena that affect the battery’s performance, such as thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. This allows you to understand how the battery will perform under different conditions and respond to other loads
  • Collaboration and data management: Share and manage the data associated with different battery designs. This can include CAD models, simulation results, and testing data

Virtual Testing

Use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s virtual testing capabilities to simulate real-world conditions and ensure the battery is safe and reliable. Some of these capabilities include:

  • Thermal Management: Predict the battery’s performance under different temperatures and thermal loads. This can include simulating how heat is generated within the battery and dissipates into the environment
  • Cell balancing simulation: Test how the battery will perform when cells within the battery have different charge states. This can include simulating how the cells respond to other loads and how well they interact with one another
  • Safety Simulating: Simulate safety-related scenarios, such as short circuits, overcharging, and over-discharging. Safety simulation can predict how the battery will respond to these scenarios and identify potential safety risks
  • Durability and cycle-life simulation: Simulate how the battery will perform over tie, including how It will degrade and how many cycles it can withstand
  • Real-world scenario simulation: Simulate how the battery will perform in different real-world scenarios, such as other weather conditions, temperatures, and types of usage

Manage Manufacturing Process

Once the design is finalized, the platform can manage the manufacturing process, ensuring that the final product meets all the design specifications. DELMIA (Digital Enterprise Lean Manufacturing Intelligent Automation) is a software suite within 3DEXPERIENCE designed to help manufacturers plan, simulate, and optimize their production processes. Some of the key benefits of using DELMIA for the manufacturing process include the following:

  • Improved Efficiency: Identify and eliminate bottlenecks in your production processes, resulting in improved efficiency and productivity
  • Reduced cost: By simulating and optimizing production processes, manufacturers can reduce the costs associated with production, such as materials, labor, and energy
  • Increased Flexibility: Quickly adapt to changing market conditions or customer demands by easily enabling them to reconfigure their production processes
  • Better Quality: Improve the quality of your products by identifying and eliminating sources of variation and defects
  • Digital Twin: Create a virtual representation of your production processes for simulation and optimization, reducing the need for physical prototypes and mockups
  • Enhanced collaboration: DELMIA’s digital twin technology allows all stakeholders to access the same information, which enables better collaboration, communication, and decision-making

In Summary

By using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, battery manufacturers can accelerate the development process, reduce costs, and improve the performance of their batteries. This can lead to batteries that are more energy dense, longer lasting, and after, which are all critical factors in delivering winning battery technology.

In conclusion, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a comprehensive solution for designing, simulation, and testing batteries before they are built in the real world. This can lead to more energy-dense batteries, longer-lasting and safer, which are all critical factors in building winning battery technology.
