Batteries for Low- and High-Voltage Hybrids
The large variability in energy-storage requirements for the wide spectrum of hybrid-vehicle architectures creates opportunities for multiple cell chemistries and system designs. In this session, automakers will present vehicle development and energy-storage requirements for micro, mild, and strong hybrid vehicles, and energy-storage developers will present the latest achievements in meeting the requirements of the various hybrid architectures.
Session Chairman:Frank Moebius, Head of R&D High Voltage Battery,
Dr. Moebius studied mechanical engineering at the Stuttgart University, Germany. In 1990 he started his professional life as a Project Engineer in the technical section of Lufthansa German Airlines in Frankfurt. From 1992 until 1996 he conferred a doctorate at the chair of production automation at the Kaiserslautern University. In 1996 Dr. Moebius entered the BMW Group in Munich where he first was employed in the experimental vehicles department. After a 4 years side step into the HR division he started as a department manager the BMW pre-development activities of the inhouse-production of e-drive components. Between 2004 and 2013 he was responsible for manufacturing development and the prototype shop of high-voltage batteries and traction e-motors.
Since April 2014 Dr. Moebius is head of BMW R&D high-voltage battery department.
- Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Technology for 12V Micro-hybrid Systems
Scott McCaskey, Senior Application Engineer, Automotive Battery Division, East Penn Manufacturing Co.
The most cost-effective battery for 12V micro-hybrid systems is still a lead-acid battery. The most appropriate battery for a micro-hybrid system varies with duty cycle and position on the vehicle. Carbon enhanced EFBs (enhanced flooded batteries), Carbon enhanced AGM batteries (EPM trademark Synergy®) and small footprint auxiliary AGM batteries have been developed to fill various rolls on these vehicles. The capabilities of each technology will be compared with regards to performance, cycle life and how that ultimately relates to calendar life.
