battery cooling and cold plate design are becoming increasingly challenging, but our generative design technology has entered this expert domain.
Our software ColdStream will help you during every phase of the battery cooling design process - from first battery cooling designs to virtual testing and detailed thermal management analysis.
In the context of thermal design, battery cooling refers to the methods and systems used to manage the temperature of batteries in various applications.Batteries generate heat during operation, and if their temperature is not controlled, they may suffer from reduced performance, accelerated aging, and even pose potential safety risks.
Therefore, effective battery cooling is essential for optimal battery performance, longevity, and safety.Various methods are used, including air cooling, liquid cooling, and phase change cooling. These methods may involve different techniques, such as fans, heat exchangers, pumps, and refrigerants.
The choice of cooling method depends on factors such as the battery type, application, operating conditions, and performance requirements.
Battery cooling is a critical aspect of thermal design that is crucial in ensuring the reliable and efficient operation of batteries in various applications; and Diabatix is here to help.
Temperature management is crucial when designing battery packs and a battery cooling system. While traditional engineering approaches (such as manual design, trial, and error, etc.) have proven to be effective, they have their limits.
By employing generative design, you can push these boundaries, beyond what is required for a standard thermal management system, and explore outside-of-the-box solutions.
ColdStream is the first software platform in the world that offers generative design specifically for the thermal management system of batteries to design a bespoke and optimized battery cooling system.
Whether you need mass manufacturing-ready designs or only prototypes for limited volumes, our generative design engine will serve all of your thermal management needs.
Battery cooling designs can be adapted to various production techniques, from plate stamping to roll bonding.
Enable high energy-dense batteries with Diabatixhigh-energy lithium-ion batteries allow designs for products like electric vehicles (EVs) to increase their payload capacity and range, while also decreasing cost.
However, cooling EV battery packs inversely affects the ability to increase their power and battery life.Here at Diabatix, we can solve these cooling barriers with our AI-driven approach.
A key cost factor in thermal management battery pack optimization is weight. For example, the EV industry is combatting this challenge by reducing the weight and volume of the battery pack itself.
Another choice is to decrease the mass of the heat sink, which also takes up a large amount of volume and weight. Diabatix has achieved mass reductions of up to 40%, through the thousands of design iterations our artificial intelligence (AI) solution creates.
The result is a lightweight, thin design that retains high thermal efficiency. Reducing mass in a heat sink has the advantage that less material is needed for production, making it lighter and cheaper. Read more...
