Why InnoBMS?

IDIADA’s main activities regarding battery systems comprise engineering and battery testing for development, validation, homologation and certification. Engineering and development tasks include researching on battery safety validation, abuse conditions and BMS advanced functionalities as state estimation.

InnoBMS project will increase and complement IDIADAs know-how in Battery Management functionalities. Specifically, the improvement on state estimation algorithms will lead to a more efficient usage, higher performance and durability of the batteries in electric and hybrid vehicles.

What in InnoBMS?

IDIADA will work in the development of a real-time closed loop state estimation algorithm. For this purpose, the battery models built within the project will be integrated in the estimator running on the BMS edge. The algorithm will compute low complexity models based on electrical equivalents circuits which will be derived from the more complex physical-chemical models. Thus, this adaptive algorithm will contribute to achieve a more accurate state estimation during the battery lifetime and in different operating conditions including state of charge, state of power and state of health.
