Battery Cooling System Strategy & Modeling in Simulink (MATLAB) with Closed Loop Feedback Controller
Detailed Description & Targets (Refer Rulebook for Detailed Description):
1. Event Outline – The championship is divided into 2 rounds
1.1. Round 1 (Solution Outline): Each team has to analyze the problem statement thoroughly to provide the best possible solution of the problem statement titled as "Battery Cooling System Strategy & Modeling in Simulink (MATLAB) with Closed Loop Feedback Controller". Each team will be provided with problem statement and relevant battery cooling system model. Each team is supposed to work out the solution. The teams are supposed to submit the overall layout of the solution along with the strategy. The team with the best solution outline/strategy will be selected for the final round. The first-round evaluation will be done based on the following parameters:
1.1.1. Concept Clarity
1.1.2. Best Solution Layout/strategy (Problem approach strategy)
1.1.3. Flow chart for the solution to be submitted
1.1.4. Boundary Conditions Clarity
1.1.5. Feedback Controller Parameters & Parametric Optimization of the Cooling System
Top 5 teams will be selected for final round based on round 1 evaluation.
1.2. Round 2 (Final Round): The evaluation of final round will be in two-parts (Part 1 & Part 2) as mentioned below. Each part will have separate weightage.
Part 1: Final Report (50% Weightage): The team with the best strategy with the detailed mathematical & analytical calculations will be selected for this round. The criteria for the final round part 1 evaluation will be as follows:
1.2.1. Overall Understanding & Formulation
1.2.2. Detailed Thermal Engineering Analysis
1.2.3. Detailed Mathematical Calculation & Modeling
1.2.4. Logical explanation with the real-life solution, which can be implemented directly on the actual vehicle
1.2.5. Proper documentation of the work done with the strict adherence to the rule
1.2.6. Solution with zero plagiarism
1.2.7. Only solution, which can be implemented on the vehicle directly, without any deviation from the boundary conditions.
Part 2: Presentation at SAENIS TTTMS Conference 2023 (50% Weightage): Each team (Top 5 Teams Only) will be get an opportunity to present their case study at 6th SAENIS TTTMS Conference-2023, Samskara Resorts at Jaipur, Rajasthan, India on 23rd September, 2023. The presentation will be given in front of the evaluation committee & Jury at the conference. Total of 25 minutes (20 Minutes Presentation + 5 min Q&A) will be given for presentation during the conference.
Based on the overall score received in the final round (Both Part 1 & Part 2), top 3 teams will be selected for the cash prize & felicitation during the conference. There is NO WEIGHTAGE of Round 1 Score as this round is for qualification purpose only. All the qualified teams (Top 5) will be eligible for "Certificate of Appreciation" and rest of the teams will get the "Certificate of Participation".
1.4. Important Note
1.4.1. The detailed problem statement with relevant description will be provided by the organizing committee (Refer Annexure A).
1.4.2. The detailed rulebook will be provided by the organizing committee (Refer Annexure B).
1.5 Report Submission
