Day 3

08:30 AM - 09:00 AM Workshop registration and welcome coffee

Workshop A 09:00 – 11:30:

09:00 AM - 11:30 AM Combined electrochemical-thermal characterization and modelling of Li-ion cells to prevent thermal runaway

Andreas Melcher, Researcher, Karlsruher Institut of Technology

Use this workshop to gainfurther understanding into the combined electrochemical-thermalcharacterization and modelling of Li-ion cells. The workshop will bedivided in two parts.

The first part will explorethe characterization of Li-ion cells in battery calorimeters underdifferent thermal conditions in order to study the influence of ageingphenomena on different modes of heat generation and to collect data thatcan be used in battery and thermal management systems.

In the second part, a generalthermal model will be derived, discussed and extended with respect tothermal runaway. You will have the opportunity to discuss the application ofsuch model and give simplifications of the model suitable for the use inthermal management systems and for solving issues of thermal runaway.

Workshop B 09:00 – 11:30:

09:00 AM - 11:30 AM Innovative e-motor design and smart material packaging

In this workshop you willdiscuss the following aspects: How will the next-generation e-motor designlook like? What are the current challenges in e-motor technology designand how can they be addressed? How does smart material packaging in e-motortechnology look like? And what are the ways to improve efficiency, cost,weight and production?

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Networking luncheon

Workshop C 12:30 – 15:00:

12:30 PM - 12:30 PM Alternative heating solutions with heat-based cabin surfaces

This workshop’s primary goal is to discuss and find solutionsfor minimizing thermal energy consumption without compromising cabin comfort. Smart solutions on reducingclimate control need with zone-based cabin temperature controls as wellas possibilities ofdashboard and steering wheel heating will be explored with the ultimategoal of energy optimization. Whatare the current trends and how can you advance cabin comfort to the next level?

Workshop D 12:30 – 15:00:

12:30 PM - 3:00 PM Global market trends of e-motor development from light to heavy duty vehicles

This session is designed to give you a profoundinsight into latest and upcoming market trends of e-motor technology forboth, light and heavy duty vehicles. You will discuss the futuretrends of e-motor technology in Europe, USA and Asia. How is theEuropean market preparing to react on the Chinese market? How will thenext 1-5 years look like in this respect?

3:00 PM - 3:15 PM Networking break

Workshop E 15:15 – 17:45:

3:15 PM - 3:15 PM Implementation of modern heat transfer materials for passive cooling improvement and systems cost reduction

This workshop’s primary goal is to learn about modernmaterials and their appliance in maximizing passive thermal energydissipation without increase in systems cost. There are ways toachieve optimal heat transfer from electronic components – by using passivemeasures such as radiators and dissipation plates. Such systems costs arecheaper than the ones with active cooling thus a competitive advantage canbe achieved. Join us and learn more about it.

Workshop F 15:15 – 17:45:

3:15 PM - 5:45 PM Thermal management for e-motors

To significantly improve efficiency of e-motortechnology thermal management is of very high importance. This workshop is aninteractive session which will focus on understanding the relevance of heattransfer when it comes to improve performance and efficiency ofe-motors. In this interactive session you will discuss the recent findingsrelated to innovation of thermal management and the possibilitiesand limitations.
