Develop safer batteries through comprehensive impact tests
The high-voltage batteries used in electric vehicles face many challenges in terms of functional safety and crash safety. In order to address these challenges, vehicle OEMs and battery systems manufacturers need to have reliable information on the safety of the product during accident conditions. To ensure that the battery is as safe as a conventional fuel tank, it is necessary to test electric vehicle batteries by modelling the actual conditions of a crash that may cause major deformation of the battery.
TÜV SÜD can perform dynamic impact tests for electric vehicle batteries and provide advice on the optimum test design. We have a modern, fully equipped crash testing facility staffed by a dedicated team of automotive and battery experts who collaborate with you to support your development needs.
