In this workshop, we will provide an overview of the current state of the art, technical and technological challenges, and future research directions for battery management system (BMS) design in electrified vehicles. Specifically, the workshop will provide a technology overview, including the latest techniques in battery systems modeling, control, and diagnosis, along with current trends in modeling energy storage systems for automotive applications. We will then introduce methods for battery models using experimental data with emphasis on parameter identification techniques for both battery cell and battery pack modeling design. Next, we discuss state of charge and state of health estimation methods, including analysis and comparison of different model-based approaches using field application data. The development of safe management systems is critical for the Li-ion industry. In the second part of the workshop, attendees will learn about a critical algorithm required for developing a safe BMS. Model-based design techniques will be used to design, implement, and validate algorithms that ensure the safety of a Li-ion battery pack by monitoring each individual cell for overvoltage or undervoltage conditions. Next, the discussion will move to charge equalization to emphasize open issues and compare different solutions. Finally, some BMS implementation examples will be presented.
