EV Battery Testing for Safety and Performance

At TÜV SÜD, we understand the critical importance of thorough testing and validation for rechargeable energy storage systems (RESS) used in electric vehicles (EVs). Our comprehensive approach ensures the safety, reliability, and performance of EV battery packs, adhering to international standards and regulations. Whether you are an EV manufacturer or a supplier, we provide high-quality battery system testing and support to help you meet the stringent requirements of the industry.

On this brochure, you will find information on:

  • Regulatory Compliance: UNECE Regulation No. 100
  • Global Considerations: U.S., Canada, and China
  • Advantages of a Step-by-Step Approach to Battery Systems Validation

The demand for more powerful EV batteries with extended range and faster acceleration necessitates rigorous battery testing. To ensure safety and performance, our multi-step approach to battery pack validation consists of the following phases:

  • Cell Evaluation: Assessing various cell types to identify potential weaknesses and vulnerabilities, helping you select suitable battery cells for your vehicles.
  • Cell Assessment: Conducting in-depth safety and performance assessments, including lifetime evaluations, to validate cell selection and generate data for battery management system simulation and testing.
  • Module Validation: Repeating safety, performance, and lifetime assessments at the module level, focusing on external safety mechanisms, to affirm findings from cell-level assessments and understand battery behavior.
  • Pack/System Validation: Repeating safety and performance assessments at the pack level, validating earlier testing, evaluating environmental influences, and ensuring battery performance under real-world conditions.
  • Failure Analysis: Testing battery packs to evaluate potential failure modes, understand root causes, and refine pack design, enhancing overall safety and reducing the risk of battery failure.

Our step-by-step approach helps you identify battery-related issues early in the design process, enabling design changes without impacting development schedules. It also supports product verification requirements necessary for regulatory approval, ensuring compliance with industry standards and enhancing your competitive advantage.

In our brochure, we explore two case studies from customers.
