ELECTRIFICATION

Full-Service Lifecycle Management for Electric Vehicle (EV) Batteries

We provide support throughout the entire lifecycle of a battery. The Dynamic Team is composed of experts in the Closed Loop Economy of EV Batteries. A closed-loop economy is an economic model in which no waste is generated; everything is repaired, remanufactured, repurposed, or recycled.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Battery Testing

As an established automotive remanufacturer, we can provide considerable expertise and knowledge in various battery module and pack level testing services. Working together with our dedicated electrification team, our engineers will collaborate with your team to create a suitable test plan. Our process for testing ensures that the final product meets the maximum level of quality and reliability as defined by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

Dynamic provides one-on-one support to customers by helping to develop customized test programs to support their individual testing needs. We create custom test scripts and provide additional guidance and expertise for EV systems and components. As an industry leader in electric battery testing, we offer a comprehensive range of testing procedures to help estimate the overall battery State of Health (SoH). Some of these tests and services include:

  • Open Circuit Voltage (OCV) measurement and recording
  • Life Cycle, Characterization, and Performance testing
  • Battery Management System (BMS) validation
  • Low and high discharge rate testing
  • CAN bus communication and control
  • Temperature monitoring & control
  • R&D battery pack design
  • Module & pack cycling
  • Development testing
  • Consulting Services
  • Validation testing
  • Thermal Imaging
  • Load Testing

Logistics Management

Our team delivers the highest standard of shipment care to mitigate en-route risks. Our specialized shipping and receiving department is DOT 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Hazmat Certified to help customers understand packaging and documentation requirements. The final product is identified with hazard labels including but not limited to appropriate UN shipping labels and other required markings to adhere to regulatory standards laid out by all governing bodies at both the regional and international level.

Our Battery Test Facility

Our Battery Test Facility consists of 6 Electric Vehicle (EV) battery test systems and their supporting framework. Our test management software and Data Acquisition Unit (DAQ) continuously collect, timestamp, and archive temperature measurements. For thermal management, we also operate a standalone glycol chiller system with custom-designed liquid cold plates for Units Under Test (UUT). Utilizing this equipment and software, we can provide our customers with full-service turnkey operations for Remanufacturing, Repurposing, Logistics Management, and Recycling.

OUR ELECTRIFICATION OFFERINGS

INSPECTION

Learn More

Each Electric Vehicle (EV) component or system is disassembled as defined by the Original Equipment Manufacturer. Our rigorous inspection process ensures proper characterization and determines the next steps.

TESTING

Learn More

Dynamic provides one-on-one support to define Electric Vehicle (EV) battery performance testing for capacity, stress, and cycle life. We develop custom test scripts and provide additional guidance and expertise for EV systems and components. Dynamic prioritizes quality and transparency throughout our testing and reporting service.

REMANUFACTURING

Learn More

All products are verified through Dynamic’s disciplined remanufacturing process. Traceability is maintained for every component and/or system.  After validation is completed, a detailed analysis report is generated and provided to our Customer.

REPURPOSING

Learn More

We can help provide alternative options for batteries that no longer meet OES automotive specifications. Applications such as energy storage systems and stationery backup power systems can help maximize the total lifetime value of each battery.

STORAGE & MAINTENANCE

Learn More

We store and maintain each battery pack within our secure on-site warehouse. Scheduled activities are conducted to maintain the required state of charge.

RECYCLING

Learn More

We provide responsible recycling services for batteries that are damaged, unrepairable, or have reached end-of-life status.

FAQ

What is the Typical Battery Life Cycle?

The typical life cycle of lithium-ion cell in an electric vehicle battery pack consists of the following steps:

  1. A battery cell manufacturer produces cells and conducts initial cycling.
  2. The battery cell OEM then ships cells to a battery pack assembler or manufacturer.
  3. The battery pack assembler or manufacturer combines cells into various combinations, adds protection electronics and controllers,  and case materials suitable for its intended application.
  4.  A distribution center sells, and potentially ships the device containing a battery pack to a customer.
  5. The customer uses the device containing a manufactured battery pack.
  6.  At the device end of life or battery pack end of life, the device or battery pack is discarded.
  7. The battery pack is transported to a solid waste disposal site or to a recycling site.

Why Is There a Need for Battery Testing Facilities?

When an EV battery reaches the end of its useful first life cycle in an automotive application, on average, it still has around 80% – 70% of its original storage capacity. Instead of transporting these packs to a recycling center, they can be repurposed into second-life applications such as stationary power sources. By reusing EV batteries, we can decrease the demand for further battery production and minimize landfill waste. Testing facilities such as Dynamic work hard to enable a closed-loop economy for EV batteries. Testing services we provide at Dynamic help prepare these batteries for safer use in their second life applications.
