Presentation abstract

ADVANCED BATTRY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR LI-ION BATTERIES AND BEYOND

Electrical storage can tackle a lot of challenges we are facing in the transition towards large-scale introduction of renewable energy. Battery technologies will take up an increasing share in the portfolio of storage solutions. In the first decade to come, Lithium-ion batteries will be the leader of the pack. However, in the quest for more and more cost-effective and high-performant systems serving various applications, other technologies are being developed.

To ensure their safe and reliable operation, at different locations and in variable grid and environmental conditions, batteries are equipped with battery management systems (BMS). Those clearly stretch further than standard monitoring functions and can comprise sophisticated technologies enabling an intelligent control of the storage unit and its interaction with other systems.

This talk presents first of all an overview of current state-of-the-art BMS solutions, followed by a discussion on the needs for further development and challenges which are waiting on this track.
