Batteries power our modern lives. From a simple decoration using LEDs to some complex vehicles operated purely by a Battery pack. Vehicles also include the batteries we send into space!
Battery management system is the core fundamental engineering aspect in any battery-operated system. From monitoring the cell condition, the battery pack parameters as a whole, BMS is the heart of an Electric Vehicle.
Match terminology to a list of definitions
Identify major components of lithium-ion cell and their purpose
List the major functions provided by a battery-management system (BMS) and state their purpose
Understand how a BMS “measures and manages” current, temperature, and isolation and how it controls contactors
Identify electronic components that can provide protection and specify a minimum set of protections needed
Compute stored energy in a battery pack
List the manufacturing steps of different types of lithium-ion cells and possible failure modes
Creation of a National Instruments and Mathworks account is recommended, it's free.
Some knowledge on arduino programming will be appreciated
Understand the working of basic electrical/electronic components
