Upcoming web seminars

Thermal characterization of HV batteries

2022-02-09, 10:00 am (CET)

Duration of the presentation: approx. 30 minutes

Speaker: Timo Eich

The performance, operational reliability, fast-charging capability and aging of HV batteries depend crucially on comprehensive and good thermal management. For this, it is important to know the temperature profiles within the battery that occur in different operating states in as much detail as possible. Battery management systems (BMS) have the task of operating the battery within its "comfort temperature".

The development of high-performance thermal management systems requires extensive thermal analyses.

  • What is the significance of temperatures for the operation and safety of HV batteries?
  • What has to be considered for temperature measurements in HV batteries?
  • What special requirements does thermal characterization and validation of simulation models place on the measurement setup?
  • How can hundreds of temperature measurement points be precisely acquired, even between battery cells?

Data logging in worldwide fleet testing

2022-02-23, 10:00 am (CET)

Duration of the presentation: approx. 30 minutes

Speaker: Timo Eich

The electrification of mobility in particular has intensified competition among vehicle manufacturers. At the same time, the amount of data generated in modern vehicles is exploding as a result of progressive digitization. Extensive recording of fieldbus data, e.g. from control units by means of powerful data loggers, is becoming increasingly important.

To remain competitive, field tests and fleet tests must be as reliable and efficient as possible. For this purpose, worldwide data transmission of the recorded measurement data by means of modern wireless technologies is essential. In addition, it must be possible to manage large vehicle fleets easily and conveniently.

Learn how to meet these challenges in this issue of CSM Xplained.

Webinar

Current and voltage measurement in confined spaces

2022-03-09, 10:00 am (CET)

Duration of the presentation: approx. 30 minutes

Speaker: Johann Mathä

In electric vehicles, high currents and voltages often have to be measured in extremely confined spaces and on short high-voltage power cables. Nevertheless, high sampling rates and measurement accuracy are required.

In this episode of CSM Xplained, we show how such measurements are performed.

  • HV current and voltage measurement in confined vehicle spaces
  • Application of the measurement on short HV power cables or busbars
  • Simultaneous measurement on several power cables
  • 3-phase measurement on integrated high voltage components like E-axles

Webinar

Power and efficiency measurement

2022-03-23, 10:00 am (CET)

Duration of the presentation: approx. 30 minutes

Speaker: Johann Mathä

The components of electric vehicles are being further developed and optimized. For this, multi-channel, electrical power measurement is necessary. It is the basis for the comprehensive analysis of the efficiency of inverters, electric motors, converters or charging systems.

In this episode of CSM Xplained, learn how this is easily done with the Vector CSM E-Mobility Measurement System.

  • Overview of the basics of electrical power measurement
  • How is electrical power calculated with the eMobilityAnalyzer?
  • How can power analysis be easily performed on the electric motor?
  • How is the power and efficiency measurement performed on the powertrain?
  • How are power losses and efficiency determined at the inverter or charging system?

Webinar

Acceleration measurement in e-mobility

2022-04-06, 10:00 am (CET)

Duration of the presentation: approx. 30 minutes

Speaker: Timo Eich

Accelerations must also be measured safely and precisely in high-voltage environments. For example, HV batteries are used as load-bearing elements in the vehicle frame. Accordingly, extensive investigations of fatigue strength are required on high-voltage components, but also within the HV environment.

  • Where do accelerations need to be investigated within an electric vehicle?
  • How can accelerations be measured HV safe for system and user?
  • What challenges arise in acceleration measurement and how can they be solved?

Webinar

Durability measurement in e-mobility

2022-04-27, 10:00 am (CET)

Duration of the presentation: approx. 30 minutes

Speaker: Timo Eich

Testing of durability poses great challenges for the measurement equipment to be used, especially in the high-voltage environment. For example, the so-called "swelling" is to be investigated on HV battery cells. For this purpose, strain gauges are primarily used whose output signals, some of which are very small, must be recorded precisely, reliably and safely at a high voltage potential.

  • Which critical points in the electric vehicle typically have to be examined for their durability?
  • How can the signals of bridge-based sensors such as strain gauges be acquired in a HV-safe manner?
  • What challenges arise in particular with strain gauge measurements at HV potential and how can they be solved?
