First place award at ECCE Conference
“Advanced Cell-level Control for Extending Electric Vehicle Battery Pack Lifetime”
SELECT researchers at Utah State University received the first place award from the IEEE Transportation Committee for their 2016 publication of “Advanced Cell-level Control for Extending Electric Vehicle Battery Pack Lifetime." The research expounds the advantages of cell-level control systems that enhance the lifetime of large battery packs. The proposed control approach uses comprehensive algorithms to assess individual cells based on their state of charge, capacity, and internal resistance. The result minimizes energy loss from capacity mismatch and optimizes the usable energy of the battery pack over an extended period.
The IEEE Industry Applications Department notified USU of the award in late July 2017 after concluding a formal review of the 2016 Milwaukee, WI conference.
