Battery demand is changing fast – mainly thanks to electric vehicles but also because of renewables and storage. The time to market for new batteries to meet new needs has to be shortened.
- Industry has found it tough to obtain robust, good quality physics-based battery models it can trust. The BPX standard defines what a good physics-based battery model should look like. As an open standard, it establishes a common language and supports improved information flow across industry.
- Today, only the largest and most technically advanced companies can afford the necessary skills and processes to leverage the benefits of physics-based models – usually through proprietary simulators. Standardisation reduces fragmentation, drives interoperability and opens up a bigger market to innovators in the battery modelling space because it enables wide access to collective knowledge, best practice and a constantly evolving development roadmap.
- BPX describes physics-based battery modelling parameters that can be used for DFN, SPMe and SPM models without any need for conversion/translation.
- Access to a freely available battery modelling standard with a commercially informed development roadmap will drive industrial uptake of more accurate physics-based modelling.
- Standardisation encourages and supports agile development workflows by reducing or eliminating time-consuming and resource-heavy in-house modelling.
- Standardised physics-based modelling for batteries opens the door to more precise, innovative and customised product specification.
