Parameter design of power battery for pure electric vehicle

The power battery is the energy source of the whole vehicle, and all the energy consumption of the whole vehicle comes from the power battery. Therefore, the type, quality and various technical parameters of the selected power battery will affect the performance of the pure electric vehicle, and it is one of the key components of the pure electric vehicle. Power battery parameter matching includes the matching of battery capacity, battery number, battery voltage and other parameters.

1.Power battery matching principle
The choice of power battery type should meet the operating requirements of pure electric vehicles. Pure electric vehicles require power batteries to have high specific energy and specific power to meet the requirements of pure electric vehicles’ driving range and power performance. At the same time, it is also hoped that power batteries have a charge-discharge cycle life equivalent to the service life of a car and have high efficiency. , Good cost performance and maintenance-free features. The power batteries currently available for pure electric vehicles mainly include lead-acid batteries, metal nickel hydride batteries and lithium-ion batteries. Among them, the superior performance of lithium-ion battery, such as high energy and fast charge and discharge speed, has attracted more and more attention, and it is a product with the best market prospects.
The voltage level of the power battery must be consistent with the voltage level of the drive motor and meet the requirements of motor voltage changes. At the same time, because accessories such as electric air conditioners, electric vacuum pumps, and electric power steering pumps also consume a certain amount of electric energy, the total voltage of the battery pack is larger than the rated voltage of the driving motor.
Power batteries generally have two types: energy type and power type. In order to meet the driving requirements of pure electric vehicles, energy-type batteries are used. When matching, the energy of the battery is mainly investigated, that is, the battery should have a larger capacity to increase the driving range of the vehicle . The battery capacity is proportional to its power. The larger the capacity, the greater its output power. Therefore, its output power can meet the requirements of the entire vehicle power system. Therefore, the battery capacity is mainly determined according to its driving range, and the determined battery capacity is also Must meet the standards of existing products in the market, and design through repeated verification of existing products.

2.Power battery parameter matching design
A power battery pack is a single mechanical assembly composed of one or more battery modules; a battery module is a combination of a group of connected single batteries; a single battery is the smallest unit that constitutes a battery, generally composed of a positive electrode, a negative electrode, and an electrolyte. .
(1) The capacity of the power battery pack.
The capacity of the battery pack depends on the driving range of the pure electric vehicle. The larger the capacity of the battery pack, the longer the driving range of the pure electric vehicle, but the quality and cost of the vehicle also increase. Therefore, reasonable matching of the capacity of the power battery pack can greatly improve the performance of the entire vehicle.
