We need all the strategies to cut carbon emissions promptly may be by addressing the threats of climate change. Electrification of vehicles is the promising solution for the same as every nation is driving by expanding deployment of batteries to store electrical energy. On the other hand, specific energy density of batteries compared to fuels is the barrier for this EV penetration. However, overcoming these barriers can be possible by adding the cell / module in the battery pack.
Engineers recognizes the battery is the power source for the electric vehicles to propel. Battery pack sizing with respect to wheel energy and it’s real – time monitoring is utmost important as it is directly linked with the vehicle performance in terms of specific power and specific energy required, EV’s range, overtaking and hill climbing ability. In addition to this, understanding how to integrate a battery pack for EV application, the requirements of a battery-management system in an electric vehicle and to learn- how to model, simulate, and enable product decisions using the results are the skills required for effective sizing and modelling of the EV battery pack.
Real time monitoring / analysing the state of charge, heat generation, battery power consumption (kW) and energy consumption (kWh) is the key of maintaining vehicle performance at desired level and so the managing and planning the service and maintenance cycles of the EV.
The global training program of pManifold’s EV academy (https://pmanifoldevacademy.com/courses) on “Battery Modelling and Simulation” will provide with you a firm foundation in EV battery basics and function, technical specification and battery management system, and most importantly how to model the battery as well as BMS in Excel and Sci-Lab.
