A model’s accuracy can only be as great as the quality of material properties used in the simulation. EC Power, in conjunction with The BEST Center at Penn State, is currently developing the world’s most comprehensive database of Li-ion battery material properties. Over 100,000 coin cells have been tested, with characterization still ongoing, yielding high quality data for the following materials:
This advanced materials database is such a crucial factor to the accuracy of the TCB model that it is included in every version of our AutoLionTM Suite of software programs. This enables the model to accurately predict temperature and performance over wide-ranging conditions: another feature that sets EC Power apart from our competitors and puts an invaluable tool into the hands of battery engineers.
