Gamma Technologies Buys AutoLion Software

By David Lubach27 February 2018

Gamma Technologies LLC, a software company and the maker of GT-Suite, a multi-physics CAE system simulation tool serving the automotive and related industries, said it as acquired the AutoLion battery modeling software business from EC Power. Terms of the deal were not available.

AutoLion is a manufacturer of lithium-ion battery simulation software used by battery suppliers and original equipment manufacturers for both 1D and 3D battery analysis and design. It is a predictive, physics-based simulation tool that models internal battery electrochemical processes, thus allowing fast evaluation of a wide range of battery chemistries, including mixed chemistries, and cell designs under even extreme conditions.

In addition to advanced simulation capabilities, AutoLion includes a comprehensive electrochemical database for many different materials and chemistries used in lithium-ion batteries, reducing the burden for laboratory testing for electromechanical properties.

The purchase means that GT users can now access this battery modeling tool under the name AutoLion-GT, integrated into GT-Suite and also directly with the new GT-Drive+ solution for direct application to electrified vehicle systems and battery thermal modeling. This allows for use of fast-running battery models as an integral part of vehicle system simulations to model battery performance and predict battery life, the company said.
