CIC energiGUNE, the Basque research center of reference in electrochemical and thermal energy storage and a member of the Basque Research & Technology Alliance-BRTA, and its spin-off BCARE, specialized in offering added value services to the industry on matters of energy storage, have presented today to the automotive industry gathered at the forum AVL Tech Week the advances obtained on the knowledge of the battery, through tools such as “post-mortem” analysis, and its application to new products and services.
Roberto Pacios, Technology Coordinator of the Electrochemical Energy Storage at CIC energiGUNE, and Soraya Romo, General Manager of BCARE, have been the people in charge of presenting the results of the work carried out at the Technology Park of Álava, and which has resulted in the obtaining of advanced models for the batteries of the future electric vehicle in three critical sections: state of charge, the device’s health and battery life. Some of these models have already been successfully implemented on concrete products and services that are part of BCARE’s assets.
Specifically, doctor Pacios has explained the way in which the operation conditions of the vehicle affect on the duration and security of the battery; and which are the technological trends to advance in the state of the art, in autonomy as well as in security. For her part, General Manager of BCARE has made known the advanced systems of battery management based on predictive models.
