As there was nothing available on the market that suited all the design constraints, the design team opted for their own design of joining and constraining the prismatic cells.
Due to the way the lithium battery would be integrated and where it had to be tested we created a modular design that allowed the battery to be disassembled and transported safely to its test location.
The high current path needed to handle 200kW continuous so when the voltage dropped we expected to see currents approaching 400A. This posed a challenge to create a system that was modular, safe, reliable but extremely high performance.
The entire mechanical design, manufacturing, software design and hardware design and testing was all performed in-house (Apart from the odd bit of metal bashing)
