Battery Design Studio 11.x | 181.4 mb
CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced the release of Battery Design Studio 11.02, is a unique tool that allows engineers to design battery cells, simulate performance, and analyse data from both simulation and test work.
Battery Design Studio, originally created by Battery Design LLC, has been evolving over the 15 years it has been available and it is now part of the CD-adapco stable of products. Combining CD-adapco's ever popular dedicated support model with this leading software in electrochemistry modelling allows even the most occasional analysis user to add value and understanding to a project.
Battery Design Studio can be applied to all cell form factors (pouch, cylindrical & prismatic wound) and will consider all aspects of the design to initially compute volume, weight, and power densities of designs. The comprehensive user interface walks the user through the setup up of their cell including electrode design, chemistry formulation, tabbing strategy, and external packaging to arrive at a complete cell model.
Once a cell is created this can be used to simulate performance over a given test cycle, confirming the models operation, or an appropriate drive or duty cycle enabling the limiting factors of the cell to be understood. These can be identified from simulation output highlighting the evolution of internal quantities, such as lithium concentration, across the electrode pairs within the cell. Such understanding provides insight into how a cell could be improved and a cost/benefit analysis conducted to understand if this is 'good' solution. Uniquely, this cell model can be imported in to STAR-CCM+ using the Battery Simulation Module to enable a detailed flow, thermal and electrochemistry analysis of a battery pack using this cell model to be computed.
Battery Design Studio can also be used as a neutral environment to compare battery cell test work from various cycler manufacturers. The software contains converters for all popular cyclers, allowing data to be presented in a regular format showing all data. This also enables simulation data to be presented against cycler data and the software contains many specific tools aimed at battery analysis, e.g. Voltage vs. DOD/SOC.
CD-adapco is the world's largest, privately owned CFD-focused CAE provider. Our core products are the technology-leading simulation packages, STAR-CCM+ and STAR-CD. The scope of our activities, however, extends well beyond CFD software development to encompass a wide range of CAE engineering services in fluid dynamics, heat transfer and structural engineering. Our ongoing mission is to "inspire innovation and reduce costs through the application of engineering simulation software and services." CD-adapco has maintained 15% organic year-on-year growth over the last five years. CD-adapco employs over 900 talented individuals, working at 40 strategic locations across the globe.
