Maplesoft has announced the release of the MapleSim Battery Library, an add-on component library to their system-level modelling tool.
The MapleSim Battery Library allows engineers to incorporate physics-based predictive models of battery cells into their multidomain models so they can take battery behaviour into account early in the design process. With this information, engineers can optimise battery and system performance, and reduce the risk of undesirable effects such as battery overheating. The MapleSim Battery Library supports both equivalent circuit and electrochemical battery models, and includes parameter identification tools for determining model parameters from experimental data. It can be used in any modeling project that involves batteries, including consumer electronics, electric and hybrid-electric vehicles, power electronics, and energy storage in power generation applications.
