Digitalisation of battery testing, from cell to system level, including lifetime assessment (Batteries Partnership)

The current way of developing batteries is mainly based on trial-and-error processes, which are time-consuming, costly, and do not always lead to the best product design. It is particularly the case when it comes to testing batteries to assess their performance, lifetime, reliability, and safety. Existing methods and tools lead to high costs, because of long test durations, and/or the high number of required test samples, and/or the use of costly test infrastructures. There is significant room for improvement, by relying on digital methods and tools to minimize the use of standard trial-and-error processes. Digitalization of battery testing will lead to an acceleration of the battery development time, a higher quality of the battery assessment (better evaluation of battery performances, lifetime, reliability, and safety), and an improvement of the battery design itself (by better adapting the design to the application requirements and production capabilities) and a better estimation lifetime (by better modeling of battery aging). Improvement in battery testing will result in major cost savings, in particular in the development phase (test before invest). The award value is EUR 15 000 000.
