SuperLIB: Smart Battery Management of a Dual Cell Architecture for Electric Vehicles
A dual-cell battery concept has been proposed to address electro-mobility challenges where the concept entails a combination of high energy and high power optimized cells combined with an advanced management system. This concept and its advanced management system are being investigated as part of a European Seventh Framework Programme research project with the name SuperLIB, where the target is to extend life time of the battery and utilize an advanced battery management system to increase overall performance. An overview is provided on the main areas of development including cell design, battery management system development with advanced algorithms and energy distribution and advanced temperature sensor development.
