Battery DEsign and manuFACTuring Optimization through multiphysic modelling

Project description

Battery manufacturers will be charging ahead with an open-source modelling platform

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) power everything from portable electronics to electric cars. Since the first one was launched nearly 30 years ago, they have continued to evolve to support rapid innovation of the products that depend on them. A critical bottleneck in today's LIBs is the cathode material. Cathodes based on nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) are among the most promising. These materials could significantly reduce costs and enable longer driving ranges for tomorrow's electric vehicles. The EU-funded DEFACTO project plans to turbocharge the development of next-generation LIBs for the automotive market with a comprehensive open-source modelling tool. Using experimental data from two existing NMC cells to optimise algorithms, the platform promises to reduce development time and cost while enhancing performance and durability.
