IAM-AWP 01-2022 Master Thesis in Electrothermal modelling and SoX estimation of lithium-ion batteries

Organizational unit

Institute for Applied Materials - Applied Materials Physics (IAM-AWP)

Job description

The principal area of research related to the thesis is the characterization, modelling and state estimation of lithium-ion batteries. The master student is expected to develop and verify equivalent electric circuits and 3D-thermal models based on laboratory measurements and provided data. An essential part of the thesis concerns developing algorithms for SoX estimation of the lithium-ion batteries to be implemented in a Battery Management System (BMS). The SoX estimation includes state-of-charge, state-of-health, and state-of-power of the lithium-ion batteries.
