We design systems and develop diagnostics and control algorithms for electrochemical energy devices such as batteries and supercapacitors, in applications from electric cars to grid power systems. Find out more
Our aim is to improve performance and cost by predicting dynamics and lifetime, estimating temperatures and faults, and measuring how and why devices perform in the real world. This requires us to address fundamental issues in modelling, instrumentation and data processing.
Our new pre-print Improving optimal control of grid-connected lithium-ion batteries through more accurate battery and degradation modelling is available. Check it out, let us know what you think!
We’re delighted to have two Oxford students spending the summer in our team, working on some super exciting skunkworks projects: Han Zhou, who is just finished his 2nd year at St Hilda’s, and Federico Ferrari, who has just finished 4th year at LMH.
It’s spring time and the conference season is beginning - this week a number of us are off to the lovely German city of Aachen to present recent work at the Battery Power conference.
