In the scope of DEMOBASE project, numerical simulation is used to design an efficient and safe storage
system for a light weight electric vehicle. Multi-scale modelling is used in order to assess the safety of the
battery pack when submitted to thermal and electrical abuse situations. 3 cells generations are to be studied
in the project so that development times should be reduced. First study has been carried out on the first
generation with the calibration of lumped electrothermal model taking into account thermal runaway. 0D
numerical simulation on module behaviour with abuse tolerant design show the effect of new materials on
the module safety.
