Rethinking battery management for EVs and grid-tied energy storage

Click image to enlarge

Figure 1: Typical battery packs like those being developed for electric vehicles and grid-tied energy storage systems are expensive, short-lived, big, complex, and limiting. Cell variations drive the degradation in pack capacity over the life of the pack. Ultimately, the weakest cells constrain both pack performance and operating life.

Large-format, high-power battery packs are expected to play a central role in two technological revolutions. One is the electrification of the automobile through the further development and adoption
