3:00 – 3:45 PM CET
Session One – How do PCM-filled open porous metal structures for improved thermal management of batteries work?                                                          High power batteries in electric vehicles release large amounts of heat due to high charge and discharge rates.
• PCM can be used to dissipate peaks of thermal load
• With open porous metal structures the system’s thermal behavior can be optimized to thermal boundary conditions
Dummy battery cells with were developed to test the system in proper dimensions applying official driving cycles
André Schlott, Head of Business Unit Energy and Thermal Management, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM

4:00 – 4:45 PM CET
Session Two – How to Improve HVAC efficiency with heat pumps and thermal storage?
In this presentation, the expert will go into the following topics:
• Impact of HVAC system energy consumption on EV range… and some ideas for improvements
• Heat pumps and heat sources for them
• Thermal storage and waste heat usage
Christian Rathberger, Senior Manager, Magna Powertrain Engineering Center Steyr

5:00 – 5:45 PM CET
Session Three – How to simulate a battery module faster with a 3D thermal network model?
 In this presentation you will hear a perspective of an EV car maker, discussing:
• A faster 3D thermal simulation method for a full battery module
• Using a 3D network of thermal links representing conduction between important thermal masses in the module.
• The thermal masses are lumped representations of module components including battery cells and cell holders.
• Comparison of the simulation results with those of the full fidelity 3D model for 1.5C  discharge and a fast charge cycle
