Battery Thermal Management Simulation

GT-SUITE provides the ideal platform for optimizing battery thermal management systems 

Battery Thermal ManagementELECTRO-THERMAL MODELING

In GT-SUITE batteries are optimized on the cell, module, and pack level. The temperature and current distribution within the cells and pack are simulated to predict the battery performance under a variety of dynamic conditions. 

These battery thermal models are integrated with the electrical system and coolant system to capture the transient effects on battery performance, heat generation rate, vehicle range, and more. 

Battery Thermal ManagementAPPLICATION HIGHLIGHTS

  • Integrate battery thermal model with electrical and fluid systems
  • Use well-established 3D-CAD based process to create high-fidelity component models
  • 1D flow +3D FE thermal models built using GEM3D, which are unique to G-SUITE, can provide accurate pressure drop and temperature distribution much faster than 3D CFD
  • Quickly size cooling plate geometry
  • Easily review results for both steady-state and transient conditions
Synergetic 1D & 3D Battery Solution

Advanced Features

  • Discretize individual battery cells for accurate analysis of current and temperature distribution within the cell
  • Analyze multiple battery cooling techniques, such as direct contact liquid cooling, indirect contact liquid cooling, air cooling, and two-phase refrigerant
  • Predict temperature distribution across the battery pack and within the cell
  • Study battery performance across a range of environment conditions including transient warm up and cool down
  • Predict thermal runaway propagation within the battery pack
  • Optionally link with GT-AutoLion  for electrochemical cell modeling to predict aging, distribution of heat generation, and state of health
  • Optionally link GT-CONVERGE  3D CFD to GT-SUITE’s 3D thermal finite element solution for a detailed prediction of 3D flow effects
