Abstract"Digital Twins for Battery Design and Test"

When designing and validating new batteries, testing can be time consuming, energy intensive, hazardous, and require expensive DUT and capital test assets. Using simulation and modeling, a digital twin of both the DUT and the test system provides virtual testing to shorten the time and expense of design verification. This presentation describes a software framework to achieve lower costs and faster design cycles with reduced real testing when taking new designs to completion.
