iModBatt
The objective of the GHOST project is to develop an InteGrated and PHysically Optimised Battery System for Plug-in Vehicles Technologies. The modular battery system can either be a single or a dual system. In both cases the system will have fast-charge capability due to improved thermal management system: enhanced cooling. The system will enable the reduction of integration costs as well as the assembly times. Two demonstrators will be done for the single battery system: a plug-in electric vehicle and an electric bus. Further, the dual battery system will be bench tested. This GV-06-2017 project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 770019.  

The aim of i-HeCoBatt is to achieve a smart, cost bursting industrial battery heat exchanger to minimize the impact on full electric vehicle range in extreme conditions. The project will develop a solution to remove the currently used expensive and heavy gap filler to enhance the overall efficiency, as well as an advanced instrumentation system to feed the battery management system and a cloud-based monitoring system. The solution will be tested in a laboratory and on-board in EVs. Finally, it will be industrialised to enhance the cost reduction and to introduce the product in OEMs value chain in a maximum period of 2 years after the closure of the project.
