Research

In the Batteries research group, we focus on activities at both battery cell level and battery system level.

The research activities at cell level are related to:

  • Electrical and thermal performance characterization of battery cells in a wide range of environmental and loading conditions, emulating real-life usage
  • Lifetime testing (accelerated or real-time) of battery cells using synthetic and/or real-life mission profiles
  • Development and parametrization of accurate electrical and thermal battery cell models based on experimental data and data-sheet.
  • Battery lifetime prediction based on battery performance-degradation models and machine learning techniques
  • State estimation (SOC, SOH, SOP) of battery cells using battery models and/or data-driven methods
  • Battery post-mortem analysis and aging mechanisms identification

The research activities at system level are related to:

  • Designing and prototyping of smart batteries with extended lifetime and fault tolerance
  • Diagnostics of EV batteries in both first-life and second-life.
  • Optimized power and energy management strategies for batteries used in hybrid energy systems
  • Development of mission profiles for battery increased-performance and long-lifetime.
