Invited speaker in eWEAR Symposium
Prof. Simona Onori, Engery Resources Engineering, Stanford University
Abstract: Battery Management Systems (BMS) manage the output, charging and discharging and provide estimates on the status of the battery during its use, and protect the battery from misuse to ensure safety and longer duration. In this talk, we discuss the Stanford Energy Control lab’s recent research on advanced BMS. Specifically, we discuss i) state of health estimation using electrochemistry and control theory tools, ii) battery-in-the-loop validation, and iii) battery pack modeling and control.
