Course Overview

Batteries for EV Applications introduces principles of operation of secondary batteries and their different chemistries: Lead Acid, Nickel Metal Hydride, and Lithium Ion. The relationship between cells, modules, and packs will be discussed in the context of sizing batteries to meet vehicle performance needs. The mechanical construction of batteries will be described. A review of various components in battery packs for xEVs will allow the learner to understand functional purposes and trade off with cost. The course will look at test procedures recommended by regulatory bodies for safe operation and transportation of batteries.  Learners will learn how to build equivalent circuit models (ECM) for cells. Concepts of battery life, secondary life, and various failure modes of batteries will be addressed. The course will introduce battery management systems (BMS) and various accessories needed for eliciting durable performance from battery packs.
