Agenda Day 1

Monday, September 17th, 2018


2:40 PM Round table session | Requirements to future Battery Management systems

BMS is an integral part of a car since it protects the battery from damage, predicts battery life and maintains the battery in an operational condition. A discussion on the requirements is needed in order to understand what the current status of the technology and what is necessary to make sure that the future is carried out safely. We invite delegates to discuss and elaborate with experts. For each topic you chose, you have 20 minutes to discuss it in your group. The results will be presented at the end.

14:40 Session I • 15:05 Break for Switching • 15:15 Session II

Table A | Battery state estimation
• Factors to be aware
Dr. Jorge Varela Barreras, Senior battery researcher, Imperial College London


Table B | BMS algorithms
• How intelligent BMS algorithms can ensure lifetime and safety
Torsten Wik, Professor, Electrical engineering, Chalmers University


Table C | BMS architecture requirements future outlook
• Centralized (BCU&CSC as one unit) vs. decentralized BCU and CSC separated
• Com. Bus @ decentralized systems(CAN / Daisy Chain / Wireless)
• BMS partitioning (HV Part within BCU / HV part within together current sensing / BCU within BDU)
Chrysanthos Tzivanopoulos, Senior engineer of the Battery Management System Hardware
Development for Lithium Ion Batteries, Robert Bosch GmbH

Agenda Day 2

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018


11:40 AM Adaptive battery control

• How to make algorithms cope with changes in operating conditions and battery health
while maximizing performance
• Use of traditional equivalent circuit modelling
• Base our algorithms on limitations on internal physical variables instead of terminal voltage
and external temperature
