About

Get Started in Algorithms for Battery Management. Learn how to model lithium-ion battery cells, and how to use those models to manage battery packs in this Algorithms for Battery Management Systems course offered by Coursera - University of Colorado Boulder.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

In this Algorithms for Battery Management Systems course offered by Coursera - University of Colorado Boulder, you will learn the major functions that must be performed by a battery management system, how lithium-ion battery cells work and how to model their behaviors mathematically, and how to write algorithms (computer methods) to estimate state-of-charge, state-of-health, remaining energy, and available power, and how to balance cells in a battery pack.

Skills

  • Design equivalent-circuit models for lithium-ion battery cells
  • Implement state-of-charge estimators for lithium-ion battery cells
  • Understand how lithium-ion battery cells work and basic requirements of battery-management systems
  • Implement state-of-health estimators for lithium-ion battery cells

Applied Learning Project

Learners will start with supplied code templates (in the Octave/MATLAB language) to build their own code to simulate lithium-ion battery cells and packs, and to estimate battery cell state-of-charge, state-of-health (capacity and resistance), remaining energy, and available power.
