As the electric-vehicle (EV) aftermarket evolves and changes, engineers, programmers and product developers must understand how to keep an electric vehicle battery safe and at peak performance levels.
During the webinar “EV Calibration” presented by the SEMA Emerging Trends & Technology Network (ETTN), September 28, at 12:30 p.m. (PDT), participants will learn how a battery’s vehicle control unit (VCU) operates and why it performs the way it does. Attendees will hear from Kirk Miller, an expert in the performance aftermarket who focuses on the tuner, EV and motorsports market segments. As vice president of sales and marketing for AEM Electronics/AEM EV, Miller will break down the basics for working on EVs.
This will be a detailed session covering information that is communicated to and from the battery management system (BMS), and what the VCU does with regard to reacting to performance demands and/or de-rating due to changes in temperature, current and voltage that are outside of what is determined to be ideal. Miller will answer participants’ questions live.
