Orient and Ricardo have teamed up to jointly develop next-generation battery management system. They added that the next generation energy storage system will be designed, developed and manufactured by Singapore-based Orient Technology and incorporate elements of the advanced battery management and control algorithm technology from Ricardo.
Orient Technology (S) Pte Ltd is known for providing solutions for safe, reliable and high-performance battery pack design and manufacturing. It has developed products across a wide range of applications for customers worldwide. Ricardo’s has experience in the field of hybrid and electric vehicle battery pack development.
Rapid design, simulation and analysis of a wide range of battery design concepts
Ricardo Asia president Gary Tan said, “The automotive industry has over the past five years invested over $10 billion in the developing Li-ion technology to meet safety, performance, durability, and warranty targets. Ricardo’s extensive experience in the development of energy storage enables the company to offer expert assistance in bringing forward further battery system innovations. We are also able to deploy our virtual engineering toolset to this challenge, which enables rapid design, simulation and analysis of a wide range of battery design concepts. We are proud to partner Orient Technology and look forward to supporting the development of its next-generation energy storage system.”
The battery pack development support offered by Ricardo ranges from applying new cell chemistries and battery architectures to designing and building prototype packs and supporting customers through to full-scale manufacturing implementation. The main areas of Ricardo expertise that Orient Technology will utilize are in the incorporation of advanced battery state and parameter prediction. It will be based on Ricardo-developed condition monitoring, modelling and control algorithms that have been proven robust across different cell chemistries and in challenging applications.
Jonathan Colim, project manager of Orient Technology said, “Orient is pleased to partner Ricardo in this project. We have a team of highly experienced engineers specialising in battery pack design, but we also value the ability to utilise the expertise, knowledge and technical know-how of leading international partners such as Ricardo. This will further help Orient Technology deliver the speed and ingenuity to meet even the most stringent requirement from our global customers. This project is just the beginning and we look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration between both companies.”
