Battery management systems (BMS)

At MPLab we're studying and developing several industry-oriented and research-directed BMS projects.

Battery modeling

We study various techniques for battery modeling, including equivalent circuit models in both the time and frequency domains. We also consider higher scale models beyond cell-level such as module- and pack-level models. 


Battery diagnostics

We're using data-driven techniques to perform battery diagnostics, including state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH) estimation. We also study battery degradation using long-term experimental cycling protocols. 


Battery balancing

We study active battery balancing from both the hardware design and control perspectives. We use a modular design to reduce cost and space, potentially accelerating the adoption of active balancing.
