FASTEST project aims to overcome these barriers by developing and validating a fast- track testing platform able to deliver a strategy based on Design of Experiments (DoE) and robust testing results, combining multi-scale and multi-physics virtual and physical testing. 

This will enable an accelerated battery system R&D and more reliable, safer and long-lasting battery system designs. Such innovative platform, will be designed from a user-centric approach, managing the requirements for a certain application and battery system or sub-system (from the whole pack to the module, cell or material levels).

Project Key Research Areas


Fast-track hybrid testing platform

The fast-track hybrid testing platform will be composed of different, inter-twined, modules. From test planning (in the cloud), over partly and full physical testing (incorporating simulations) a closed cycle or network of interconnected components is built.

DT structure for information management

The virtualisation of battery testing will use the DTs of the battery components as an enabler. These will serve as a structured data picture of the physical asset, containing all the relevant characterising information, from telemetry and static data to analytical and physics-based models.

The virtualisation of characterisation experiments

Different modelling approaches are required for multi-physics and multi-scale models to aid in the minimization of physical testing and, as a result, the expected reduction in resources required in the battery value chain development of new chemistries.
