Monitoring Batteries Wirelessly

Lithium-ion batteries, when used to drive automobiles, can operate reliably over long periods, but require considerable care. That means not operating them to the extreme ends of their state of charge or SOC. With passage of time and usage, the capacity of a lithium ion cell changes, and therefore, each cell in the system has to be managed so that it remains within its constrained SOC. As vehicle operation requires generating as much as 1000 V or higher, tens or hundreds of cells are necessary, Read more [...]
