Battery Cell Voltage Measurement and Balancing system performs high-precision measurement and control of cell voltages in Li-ion batteries.
New rapid control prototyping (RCP) offerings from dSPACE are said to simplify the development of critical battery management algorithms by enabling precise, fast measurement and control of cell voltages for modern Li-ion batteries.
dSPACE’s newest Automotive Simulation Models (ASM) simulation package is a battery model for simulating high-voltage rechargeable batteries. The model is designed to virtualize rechargeable lithium-ion, nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) and lead batteries used for the electrification of vehicle drivetrains.
The MathWorks said that Dongfeng Electric Vehicle (DFEV), a research and development arm of Chinese automotive maker Dongfeng Motor Company, has developed a battery management system within 18 months using MathWorks tools for Model-Based Design. The new battery management system has been installed in Dongfeng’s EQ6110 hybrid electric city bus, which delivers 30% better fuel efficiency than standard city buses while also lowering emissions.
August 5, 2009 – Rotoblock Corp. has signed a memorandum of understanding to acquire a privately held firm in China that makes battery management systems for electric vehicles. Rotoblock did not identify the acquisition target, but said the firm’s factory can produce a minimum of 1,500 units per month.
