Battery management systems (BMS) ensure maximum performance, safe operation, and optimal lifespan of battery pack energy storage systems under diverse charge-discharge and environmental conditions. With Simulink®, engineers can use simulations to model feedback and supervisory control algorithms that monitor cell voltage and temperature, estimate state-of-charge (SOC) and state-of-health (SOH) across the pack, control charging and discharging rates, balance SOC across the battery cells, and isolate the battery from source and load when necessary. Starting from early design tradeoffs to hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing of BMS hardware, Simulink can help engineers perform desktop simulations to ensure the BMS performs as intended under all desired operating conditions and meets design durability requirements. In this talk, you’ll learn how Simulink helps engineers from electrical, thermal, and software backgrounds collaborate throughout the development cycle of BMS algorithms.
