AKASOL Project Partner In the composite project LIANA +, the Darmstadt AKASOL GmbH developed a novel high lithium-ion battery system for diesel-electric hybrid in the non-road sector. MTU Friedrichshafen, sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW), the Institute for drive technology and Mechatronics from the University of Rostock (IAM) and the Centre for solar energy and hydrogen research (ZSW) are project partners. The aim of the project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and technology (BMWi) LIANA + is a highly innovative technology that is currently available for non-road applications not yet available to the development and proof of the applicability of large lithium-ion battery modules in mobile diesel-electric hybrid drive systems. The focus of the project is the admission capacity of the entire system to be developed. In contrast to typical solutions for road traffic, higher services are necessary when vehicles and non-road mobile work machines. Also applications in the rail due to the significantly expiring frequent charge / discharge cycles significantly stricter requirements on the carrying capacity of the battery system. The research are therefore focused on the battery and energy management system, as well as on the functional robustness - and proof of the safety of the hardware and software components. Not about AKASOL was selected as technology partner for this extraordinarily challenging project. For one, the German company is one of the world's leading developers and producers of mobile and stationary high-battery systems. Furthermore AKASOL specialists project demonstrated already at the HEBEA sponsored also by the BMWi, that they confidently control the development of complex lithium-ion batteries including system integration. If successful, can the LIANA + battery system be further developed to the point of production and should be in the future for non-road applications as well as for commercial vehicle applications with similar performance figures used.
Rapid Cycle Project Seminar ' rapid cycle project - 100 days to project completion!' by the 19.-20 June 2013 in the Haus der Technik Berlin rapid cycle projects called breakthrough projects in German-speaking countries and are strictly result-oriented. The specific architecture of the "rapid-cycle projects method" with its functional structures and communication-enhancing routines can organise a project so that it can be implemented successfully in 100 days. This results-oriented approach focuses on important and challenging business objectives such as cost reductions, revenue increases, market expansion, etc. In contrast to classical projects, the processes with rapid-cycle projects (called breakthrough projects in the German-speaking area) be designed such that the required results can be achieved quickly. The project is organized by a specific "architecture" with functional structures and promotional communication routines. Already an active "learning by doing" takes place in the course of the project. So can the project in other areas as Model"are used. The seminar on project management presents the essential aspects and framework conditions for the implementation of strategic projects with the "rapid-cycle projects method" in individual and group work and provides impulses for their transfer into practice. "The seminar rapid cycle project - 100 days to project completion!" from 19-20 June 2013 in the Haus der Technik Berlin is aimed at executives, project managers and project staff with basic knowledge in project management. founded in 1927 in Essen, the Haus der Technik (HDT) is not only the oldest, today but also one of the leading independent training institutes for specialists and managers of in Germany. About 15,000 participants annually use the facilities in Essen and at the branch offices in Berlin and Munich. With a wide range of education in technology, economy, electrical engineering, automotive engineering, medicine, chemistry, construction, quality management and environmental protection, the HDT focuses on future-oriented core industries....
