We offer the following research topic

Thesis - System Modelling for HV Battery Failures leading to Thermal Propagation 

Master Thesis

 

The automotive industry is crucial for reducing emissions and promoting sustainable transportation. Electric vehicles offer a promising solution to environmental challenges and growing transportation needs. Accurate system models reflecting the complexities of thermal runaway are essential for understanding its factors and assessing battery reliability.

 

This master's thesis aims to develop and validate precise system models for advancing automotive battery technology.

  

 

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES:

 

  • Review state-of-the-art system modeling approaches for automotive batteries.
  • Investigate the fundamental processes during thermal runaway and their predictability in comparison with existing tests.
  • Develop mathematical and computational system models for battery thermal runaway behavior under different conditions and different batteries.
  • Compare the developed models using experimental data in a statistical sense.

 

YOUR PROFILE:

 

  • Ongoing master studies in the fields of technical or natural sciences (physics, mathematics or similar...)
  • Basic knowledge of any system modelling language and software (e.g. SysML, Modelica, …)
  • Good proficiency in mathematical statistics
  • Experience in applying data science methods is a plus
  • Highly developed quality awareness with strong attention to details
  • High level of self-reliance with the ability to work in a team, as well as autonomously
  • Fluent English language skills are essential, fluent German is beneficial

 

WE OFFER:

 

  • You can write your thesis independently and receive professional guidance and support from our experienced employees.
  • You will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with experts in the company and benefit from their expertise.
  • Take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of AVL and embed your theoretical knowledge in a practical environment.

 

The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR €3,500.00 before tax.

 

You don't want to write your final thesis just for the books, then explore the mobility of the future together with us! Maybe you will be a part of it soon!
