Temperature measurement in e-mobility

Temperatures play a major role in the performance and safety of vehicles with electric, fuel cell or hybrid drive systems. If the temperatures in components such as the HV battery deviate significantly from their ideal range, performance losses, accelerated wear or even total failure are the result. Accordingly, temperatures must be measured intensively at many points.

  • What is the significance of temperatures in electromobility?
  • How can a HV-safe measurement chain be built - from the temperature measurement point to the data acquisition unit?
  • What are the options for temperature measurement for the various applications?
  • What advantages and disadvantages do the various options offer?
  • How can hundreds of temperatures in HV batteries be measured efficiently and safely?

The Vector CSM E-Mobility Measurement System

For the comprehensive analysis and testing of electric vehicles, physical parameters from numerous sources (HV and low-voltage environment) must be acquired and analyzed. A precise evaluation of the data is only possible through the synchronous acquisition of the data. In addition, the design of such a measurement system should be conceivably simple and precisely tailored to the measurement task.

  • How can various physical parameters (such as acceleration, strain, flow, humidity, and many more) measured with fast or slow signals and HV-safe or conventional?
  • How can measurement data from additional sources, such as vehicle buses and ECUs, be integrated?
  • How can the synchronicity of the measurements be ensured?
  • What does an ideal measurement system for measurements on the test bench and in road tests look like?

Thermal characterization of HV batteries

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 of analog signals in worldwide fleet testing

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.

Current and voltage measurement in confined spaces

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

Acceleration measurement in e-mobility

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?

Durability measurement in e-mobility

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?
