Electrical Energy Storage
Electrical Energy Storage, EES, is one of the key
technologies in the areas covered by the IEC.
EES techniques have shown unique capabilities
in coping with some critical characteristics of
electricity, for example hourly variations in demand
and price. In the near future EES will become
indispensable in emerging IEC-relevant markets in
the use of more renewable energy, to achieve CO2
reduction and for Smart Grids.
Automated battery management system for electric/hybrid electric vehicle

This paper proposes an automated battery management system (ABMS) for electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) to increase the lifecycle of the batteries. Automated battery management system is needed to enhance the life of the battery set by individually recharging the batteries and monitoring them while being charged. This will enable the battery management system to recharge the batteries fully and to determine if any of the batteries is not accepting charge. Based on the state of charge (SOC) of the set, a specific number of batteries is automatically selected for propulsion by using computer and associated interfacing circuits. To realise this logic, a programme has been developed in C language which automatically rejuvenates batteries, charges and discharges individual batteries in pack, and protects each battery from over discharge and over charge.

SAE International Connect2Car: Connecting with Confidence
Join us for the SAE International conference track at the CES® 2018.
The 2018 program is bigger and better than anything we have done at CES®! We have partnered with the GENIVI Alliance to create a full-day program that brings the best of current automotive technology discussions to CES!
The Tuesday program covers the industry’s hottest topics, including the future of connected smart cities, connectivity and data, autonomous vehicles, cybersecurity, and the connect2car aftermarket.
These technical sessions attract a good crowd with senior managers from startups, tech companies, aftermarket suppliers, and automotive technology enthusiasts all interested in gaining insight into the future of automotive technology.
If you are interested in experiencing an SAE program with a CES flare, especially if you are an OEM or supplier executive, consumer electronics leader, mobile application developer, or aftermarket entrepreneur focusing on enhancing the driver experience and accelerating the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicle technologies, you should plan to attend.
