Description: a battery pack accounts for a very important part of the value of a fully electric vehicle. However, batteries can be damaged due to use and time. Manufacturers must therefore guarantee the performance and range of vehicles over their lifetime.
The MOBICUS project aims to develop and confirm the viability of strategies to prolong the life of batteries depending on vehicle use and charging modes, based on experimental measurements and validations.
The new approaches of the MOBICUS project include:
- non-linear coupling between the two ageing methods,
- validation on a broader temperature scale, in particular when cold
- the distribution of characteristics of the cells in the pack,
- the use of real-time HIL (Hardware in the Loop) testing to reproduce the behaviour of the vehicle, validation on a fleet of vehicles.
