Accelerate EV Battery Development With Machine Learning

Reduce validation testing time and effort. Get to market faster.

Electrification is driving industry disruption in automotive and mobility. Huge investments to develop longer-lasting, faster charging, lower-cost battery technologies are in flight. Traditional simulation cannot accurately model battery performance. OEMs and cell manufacturers are forced to rely on physical testing - increasing costs, schedule delays, and uncertainty. Battery development requires a different approach to stay competitive. Learn how AI and machine learning can reduce battery validation and speed up new product development. Can you afford not to?

Build machine learning models of your battery designs from test data for a simpler, more accurate model than traditional simulation.  Self-learning models built using test data can be more accurate than ECM models and less complex than P2D models.  With the interactive tools in Monolith, you can quickly gain a deep understanding of your design, make predictions for how your battery will react under different conditions, and optimise parameter values for key use cases. 

Battery testing

Understand which design parameters and operating conditions have the greatest impact on battery performance and lifetime.  Apply model evaluation tools in Monolith to visually and quantitatively compare the accuracy of different modelling algorithms to find the best model. Build understanding and confidence in your model with sensitivity analysis and explainable AI functions to guide you on where to focus to improve battery performance.

Use machine learning models to predict test outcomes for a wide range of conditions ahead of time.  Use prediction tools to exercise your design with different input values and instantaneously see the results.  Use interactively sliders to vary inputs and see how scalar and curve outputs are impacted.  Make more educated decisions on which parameters require more rigorous testing, or which values can be removed from the test plan altogether. 

Time-Series Forecast (1)

Apply active learning techniques to create more efficient test plans. Achieve the same test coverage in fewer steps, or test more conditions in the same amount of time.  Apply Monolith's proprietary test plan optimization tools to explore your battery design space and get recommendations for the most important values for your test plan.  Reorder your test plan or remove unnecessary test steps to find the most efficient test plan without jeopardizing coverage.

Ensure battery design quality & safety using AI

 

With the power of AI, you can model battery performance across the design space with a fraction of a traditional test plan. Using the Next Test Recommender, you can apply multiple machine learning algorithms at once to chart your testing path using the fewest steps possible incrementally.

 

Predict the critical tests to run


Test too much and you waste time confirming what you already know. Test too little and you risk missing performance issues. Schedule, quality, and your career depend on finding the balance.

 

  • Run the most important tests and skip the rest
  • Optimize resources spent on costly test rigs and facilities
  • Validate your designs faster with fewer prototype iterations

What if I don't have alot of data or I'm modeling a new product?

Most often, you need less data than you think! 100s of rows and a handful of columns for a tabular data approach can already get you going on your journey to adopt AI. If you don't have enough data for an AI project, we recommend the following: 

  1. Data augmentation: Create new training examples from existing data by applying transformations or scaling to existing data (this is how our customer Kautex Textron did it).
  2. Transfer learning: Use and reuse data gathered from an old product to improve a new product.
  3. Consider a simpler model: A simpler model requires less data to train. The best approach will depend on the specific task and constraints of your project.

Our mantra: Start small - but start! Find a small, incremental quick win, and let our AI team of experts guide you on your way forward to intelligently acquire more data and build even more impactful models.

Does my team need to start from scratch once an AI model is built?

Monolith's self-learning models automate repetitive or time-consuming tasks, allowing teams to focus on more complex work. However, data quality, model drift, and interpretation are critical considerations, all supported by Monolith. Teams may need to update or retrain models to account for changes and understand their decision-making processes. By monitoring and managing these factors, teams can ensure ongoing value from Monolith's AI models.
