AutoLion-GT™

Li-ion Battery Simulation for Electric Vehicles

AutoLion is the industry-leading Lithium-ion battery simulation software suite used by cell designers and OEMs. It predictively models the electrochemical processes within Lithium-ion cells.  Its fast and reliable electrochemical simulations are used to predict performance and life characteristics for any Lithium-ion chemistry under any operating conditions.

AutoLion-GT is a product developed specifically for integration of AutoLion battery models with GT-SUITE models. With AutoLion-GT, these electrochemical models are integrated directly into GT-SUITE’s electrical and thermal domains. This enables fast-running electrochemical models to be used in GT-SUITE system-level vehicle, thermal, and battery models, allowing performance and life prediction simulations to be run in an integrated environment.

In addition to the advanced capabilities, every installation of AutoLion-GT includes a comprehensive electrochemical materials database, reducing the burden for laboratory testing for electrochemical properties.
