    Modern battery pack design has come a long way in a short period of time. While many engineers are familiar with the basic principles, designing battery packs for a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) or Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) requires advanced engineering.

    Modern battery pack design has come a long way in a short period of time. While many engineers are familiar with the basic principles, designing battery packs for a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) or Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) requires advanced engineering. 

    Knowing chemistry types and wiring, battery management systems and difference between parallel versus series cell arrangement is critical when designing battery packs because many cells connect together to create larger battery capacities.

    During this session, automotive engineers, programmers and product developers will learn about battery pack design basics, and how to identify the basic design elements of a properly designed HEV/EV high voltage battery pack.

    Jake Hawksworth, founder and CEO at Hypercraft, will present the different types of cells and their uses, the safety systems involved, and help attendees gain a deeper understanding of current high voltage architecture. 

    Hawksworth will answer participant questions live.
