Battery management system for HEV
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this thesis is to build a battery management system for hybrid electric vehicles to increase the lifecycle of the batteries. An intelligent battery management system is needed because the battery chargers presently in use are shortening the life of entire sets of batteries. This new battery management system will recharge the batteries connected in series individually, and monitor each individual battery while the entire set is being charged. This will enable the battery management system to recharge the batteries fully and to determine if any of the batteries is not accepting charge.
