Algorithms for Battery Management Systems Specialization

Get Started in Algorithms for Battery Management. Learn how to model lithium-ion battery cells, and how to use those models to manage battery packs

About This Specialization

In this specialization, you will learn the major functions that must be performed by a battery management system, how lithium-ion battery cells work and how to model their behaviors mathematically, and how to write algorithms (computer methods) to estimate state-of-charge, state-of-health, remaining energy, and available power, and how to balance cells in a battery pack.
