Addressing Range Anxiety, the Achilles Heel for EV Adoption
With growing fuel costs and concerns about climate change caused by CO2 emissions, the popularity of electric vehicles is only set to grow. However, for EV adoption to truly gather pace, automotive OEMs must address the issue of range anxiety. What if I run out of charge in the middle of the road? What if […]
Evaluating drive cycle current for better battery pack design
oorja’s drive cycle current app predicts the current in each battery cell, allowing for accurate battery design and enabling accurate calculation of battery degradation and temperature rise While evaluating battery pack performance during the design phase, information on drive cycles for which the battery is being designed is critical. A drive cycle is basically a […]
How hybrid physics-based machine learning simulation is driving a paradigm shift in design
Solve complex engineering problems fast and accurately with oorja’s hybrid physics-based machine learning simulation Till a few decades back, designing a product from scratch meant extensive experimentation at the component level and prototyping. Experimentation was cost and time intensive, and prone to inaccuracies as measurement techniques were performed manually. The rise of CAE and […]
Predicting anisotropic thermophysical properties of batteries using oorja
Lithium-ion batteries today power the lives of millions of people each day. From laptops and cell phones to electric cars and scooters, this energy storage technology is growing in popularity due to its light weight, high energy density, and ability to recharge. In our recent blogs, we spoke about how crucial temperature is to battery […]
EV manufacturers, are you prepared for the new EV battery regulations that kick in from October 1, 2022?
In light of the recent EV fire incidents in different parts of the country, the Government of India has brought in a fresh set of recommended safety norms for both existing and new EVs. These norms will help prevent battery explosions, which are a biggest deterrent to consumer confidence. The new set of measures: Amendment […]
What is HPPC testing and why is it important for battery modelling?
The Hybrid Pulse Power Characterization (HPPC) test was first proposed by the US DOE as a standardized test to determine the dynamic power capability over the cell’s useable charge and voltage range1. The primary objective of the test is to establish, as a function of the depth of discharge (DoD) the Vmin discharge power capability […]
Battery Modelling and Hybrid Simulations: A Marriage Made in Heaven?
The electric vehicle (EV) industry continues to grow in leaps and bounds spurred on by growing fuel prices, sustainability concerns, and strong regulatory backing. The Indian electric vehicle market is expected to reach USD 15,397.19 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 47.09%, as per a report by Mordor Intelligence. However, in order for electric […]
