TITLEAdvanced Battery Management Systems for Lithium-ion Batteries
ABSTRACTBattery Management Systems (BMSs) manage the charging and discharging of the battery providing estimates of state of charge and health during its use to protect the battery from misuse and ensure safety and longer duration. In this talk, we discuss the Stanford Energy Control lab’s recent research on advanced BMS using control theory tools, electrochemistry and hardware validation. Specifically, we will discuss i) state of health estimation using advanced observer design, ii) battery-in-the-loop experiments, and iii) battery pack modeling and optimization. Throughout the seminar, we will also point out relevant courses that introduce students to the topic of electrochemical energy storage and Li-ion battery modeling and control.
