Gamma Technologies the maker of GT-SUITE, a multi-physics CAE system simulation tool serving the automotive and related industries, has acquired the AutoLion battery modeling software business from EC Power.
AutoLion is used by battery suppliers and OEMs for both 1D and 3D battery analysis and design. It is a predictive, physics-based, simulation tool that models internal battery electrochemical processes, thus allowing fast evaluation of a wide range of battery chemistries (including mixed chemistries) and cell designs under even extreme conditions.
It also models chemistry-specific degradation mechanisms and allows prediction of battery aging over a wide range of operating conditions, as well as battery safety simulation (resistance to abuse).
In addition to the advanced simulation capabilities, AutoLion includes a comprehensive electrochemical database for many different materials and chemistries used in Li-ion batteries, reducing the burden for laboratory testing for electrochemical properties.
GT users can now access this battery modeling tool under the name AutoLion-GT, integrated into GT-SUITE and also directly with the new GT-DRIVE+ solution, for direct application to electrified vehicle systems and battery thermal modeling. This allows the use of these fast-running battery models as an integral part of vehicle system simulations to model battery performance and predict battery life.
