STRATEGIC LEVEL PANEL SESSION - THE HOLISTIC VIEW ON DESIGNING COST-COMPETITIVE VEHICLES

0900 Evaluate New Vehicle Design Concepts Incorporating The Latest Ideas On Cost Competitive Battery Pack Integration & Thermal Optimization For Key Market Segments

The conversation starts by addressing the interlocking vectors of holistic whole vehicle design concepts for individual market segments. Is there now a divide in the technology depending on the vehicle’s requirements? If so, what are the emerging design philosophies for different classes of B.E.V.?  For example, what is an acceptable range for a city car versus a vehicle designed for more extended distance, longer-distance applications?  How does this impact the design philosophy for the overall vehicle, including battery pack integration and thermal optimization?  And perhaps the most essential critical question of all, how do you incorporate cost optimization into your whole vehicle design concept to reduce the price of the vehicle for mass-market B.E.V’s?

13:10 Evaluating Competing Battery Pack Design & Integration Concepts For Lightweight Efficiency

A Cost-Benefit & Technical Analysis Of Each Individual Approach – What Is The Optimal Way Forward?

Since the last live BEVA USA conference in February 2020, new battery pack design and integration concepts have emerged. Structural battery pack engineering has received significant media attention. It is perhaps the leading example of a multi-function component that protects the battery cell and forms part of the vehicle body structure. How could the industry adopt such a concept, and does this approach represent the future? As many OEMs commit to unibody and skateboard-type configurations, what are the optimal strategies for evolving these more traditional battery pack designs to make them more lightweight and efficient?

OPTIMIZING DESIGN OF THERMAL MANAGEMENT AT THE SYSTEM LEVEL

SESSION FEATURING CASE STUDIES AND EXTENDED Q&A

15:40 Design Of Thermal Management At The System Level To Optimize The Global Performance Of The Vehicle

Optimal thermal management must be considered at the system level as it is critical to the battery’s performance and the powertrain system.  Too often, however, conversations about individual thermal management design options do not consider the holistic design requirements and objectives of the overall vehicle architecture.  Efficient thermal management involves every system and sub-system to optimize the vehicle’s global cooling and warming performance.
