Williams Superior Engineering might be showcasing its newest low-carbon car applied sciences at Cenex LCV2019 from Four-5 September at Millbrook, Bedfordshire, UK.
The principle focus of the stand might be an progressive battery pack showcasing Williams Superior Engineering’s Adaptive Multi-Chem know-how, which brings collectively the corporate’s information from all kinds of tasks, together with 4 seasons as the only battery provider to FIA System E in addition to many electrical car programmes.
Adaptive Multi-Chem know-how permits decreased mass and quantity, thus elevated vitality and energy density inside motorsport, hypercar and electrified flight functions.
The corporate can even be showcasing a lot of its patent-pending lightweighting applied sciences, together with the revolutionary 223TMcomposite manufacturing course of.
Growing the vitality and energy density of batteries is extensively considered electrification’s biggest problem. With the trade ramping up manufacturing of electrical and hybrid automobiles, there may be vital demand for brand spanking new battery applied sciences. Producers are often confronted with a compromise between vitality and energy density as they attempt to minimise the dimensions and weight of battery packs for a goal efficiency stage. Williams Superior Engineering’s Adaptive Multi-Chem know-how supplies one of the best of each worlds. It makes use of a state-of-the-art, bi-directional DC/DC converter to ship excessive vitality and excessive energy density in a single pack.
Use of Adaptive Multi-Chem know-how permits a 37 p.c improve in vitality density for a goal energy density. The system is extremely adaptable, with semi-independent sizing of vitality and energy cells via the usage of scalable blocks. A compact thermal administration system is ready to present adequate cooling with out pointless bulk, bettering packaging. Adaptive Multi-Chem will permit the usage of novel, ultra-high vitality and energy dense cell applied sciences in quite a lot of excessive efficiency functions together with motorsport, efficiency vehicles and aerospace.
The Williams Superior Engineering stand will characteristic a battery module that includes Adaptive Multi-Chem know-how. Peak energy, steady energy and saved vitality of the module may be tailor-made to particular person necessities. The unit on show has a complete saved vitality of 60kWh, with a core battery mass of 345kg. Peak deployment energy is 550kW (20 second pulse), and peak regeneration energy is 550kW (10 second pulse).
The brand new battery module additionally options an exoskeleton manufactured utilizing the corporate’s lightweighting know-how, 223TM. This distinctive manufacturing course of creates an engineered hinge embedded inside a single composite preform of carbon fibre strengthened polymer (CFRP). 223TM permits the creation of 3D constructions from 2D supplies, opening the potential for manufacture methods beforehand constrained by value or manufacturing charge. It permits for fast, low-cost composite manufacturing and consists of the usage of recycled supplies.
The 223TM exoskeleton vastly improves the battery’s structural efficiency, with the entire base and case weighing simply 40kg. It has an exceptionally excessive strength-to-weight ratio, spectacular stiffness and wonderful fatigue and environmental resistance. The know-how is especially related to the automotive trade, the place lightweighting is seen as one of many main instruments wanted to satisfy more and more stringent gas economic system and emissions targets, in addition to help the vary required from electrical automobiles.
“We’re creating and delivering applied sciences that may form the way forward for low-carbon automobiles,” defined Paul McNamara, Williams Superior Engineering Technical Director. “We’re working to speed up electrification within the trade and are very excited to share our progress at Cenex LCV2019. Our huge expertise in battery know-how, which has included appearing as the only battery provider in FIA System E, to not point out enterprise many electrical car programmes, alongside lightweighting and composites from F1 supplies us with unparalleled experience. We’re effectively geared up to analyse and resolve challenges from vitality administration to aerodynamics and thermodynamics. These abilities are being put to improbable use, creating the applied sciences you see right here and serving to a few of the world’s most profitable producers develop electrical and hybrid automobiles.”
Williams Superior Engineering might be exhibiting at stand 602 in Corridor three all through Cenex LCV2019.
