Navigating the Charge – Insights into Electric Vehicle Battery Handling
In the transition towards a more sustainable future, adopting high-efficiency vehicles is widely recognized as imperative to optimize energy utilization. The electrified vehicle has emerged as a crucial alternative for mitigating local pollution. Consequently, this has resulted in a transformation of the transportation sector. The focal point of this technological system resides in the battery, which serves as the primary energy storage component. The expansion of battery technology is driven by the increasing need for energy storage, leading to the ability to store greater amounts of energy within a single battery, irrespective of its form factor. In general, the energy storage capacity of an individual battery can vary between 10Wh and 400Wh. For a reasonable driving range, the energy storage capacity must be three orders of magnitude greater than that of a single battery. This can be achieved by arranging the batteries in series and parallel to become battery modules/pack. The proposed arrangement is designed to meet the voltage and capacity specifications of a particular electric vehicle (EV). The proper installation and repair of the batteries are of utmost importance due to the high associated costs and the inherent safety risks involved in dealing with a high-energy system.
