ECEC Battery Research: Integrated Simulation and Testing System for Electric Vehicle Batteries

Sponsors: U. S. Department of Transportation Advanced Vehicle Program through the Mid-Atlantic Regional Consortium for Advanced Vehicles (MARCAV), Arbin Instruments

This project is to develop and build a first battery testing/analysis system with both simulation and testing capabilities integrated seamlessly in a single product.  The simulation technology is based on the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique previously developed with Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) support.
