Advanced battery management technologies for electric vehicles

Description:Policies surrounding energy sustainability and environmental impact have become of increasing interest to governments, industries, and the general public worldwide. Policies embracing strategies that reduce fossil fuel dependency and greenhouse gas emissions have driven the widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), including hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), pure electric vehicles (PEVs) and plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs). Battery management systems (BMSs) are crucial components of such vehicles, protecting a battery system from operating outside its Safe Operating Area (SOA)), monitoring its working conditions, calculating and reporting its states, and charging and balancing the battery system. Advanced Battery Management Technologies...

Battery Management Algorithm for Electric Vehicles

DescriptionThis book systematically introduces readers to the core algorithms of battery management system (BMS) for electric vehicles. These algorithms cover most of the technical bottlenecks encountered in BMS applications, including battery system modeling, state of charge (SOC) and state of health (SOH) estimation, state of power (SOP) estimation, remaining useful life (RUL) prediction, heating at low temperature, and optimization of charging. The book not only presents these algorithms, but also discusses their background, as well as related experimental and hardware developments.

Main contents

Chapter 1 analyzes the development plan of China's new energy vehicles in the 13th five year plan and the technical indicators of the power battery management system, and systematically expounds the design and implementation points of the power battery system and its management;

In Chapter 2, the construction, experimental design and characteristic analysis of power battery test platform are described. The working characteristics of power battery under different aging, temperature and charge discharge rate are analyzed systematically, which provides direction guidance for the development of core algorithm of power battery management system;

From Chapter 3 to Chapter 7, the basic theory, algorithm construction and implementation details of the core algorithms of power battery management system, such as power battery system modeling, state of charge and health collaborative estimation, peak power prediction, residual life prediction, low temperature rapid heating and optimal charging, are discussed systematically and deeply. Finally, the "V" development process of power battery management system algorithm is discussed from the aspects of hardware and software in the loop simulation verification, bench test and real vehicle verification of the core algorithm.
