Real-Time Battery Modeling in HiL testing of Battery Management Systems
April 3, 2015 by News Editor
For testing ESS Battery Management Systems (BMS), the use of “virtual” batteries is proving to be an effective alternative to the use of real batteries. They allow the engineer to avoid the risks of damage to the batteries – and subsequent costs – while testing and optimizing the BMS design in a close-to-reality loading environment. Maplesoft, a developer of battery modeling technology, recently partnered with ControlWorks, Inc. of South Korea to develop a turn-key BMS system. The end result was a battery model capable of being configured to represent a stack of up to 144 cells that can be connected in any combination of parallel and series networks.
