【Seminar】Battery Modeling with MATLAB
Dr. Javier Gazzarri
MathWorks, Novi, Michigan, USA.
Prof. Xiangqiang Chu(储祥蔷)
2018-11-21 10:00~11:00 AM
C405 Conference Room, 4th Floor
This seminar is intended for engineers and scientists interested in battery technology.
You may have noticed that your old cellphone does not hold as much charge as it used to when it was new. Or that your electric car can go a shorter distance in the winter than in the summer. The reason for these phenomena is the distinct behavior of a crucial component of cellphones and electric cars: the battery.
Batteries are everywhere, from cellphones and laptops to cars and airplanes. Lithium ion, currently the most popular battery chemistry, requires careful management to ensure safety, performance, and durability.
In this seminar we will discuss the MATLAB/Simulink approach to modeling battery systems starting from the basics of creating battery cell blocks using equivalent circuits parameterized with experimental data. Then, we will scale up the unit cell to form a pack. Finally, we will show example applications of battery management.
1) Physical modeling of electrical systems in Simulink;
2) Equivalent circuits;
3) Model correlation using experimental data;
4) Application cases: SOC and SOH estimation, cell balancing, thermal management.
About the Speaker
Javier Gazzarri is a Principal Application Engineer at MathWorks, focusing on the use of physical modeling tools as an integral part of Model Based Design. Much of his work gravitates around battery modeling, from cell-level to system-level, parameter estimation for model correlation, battery management system design, balancing, aging, and state-of-charge estimation. Before joining MathWorks, Javier worked on fuel cell modeling at the National Research Council of Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), a MASc degree (Inverse Problems), and a PhD degree (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell degradation diagnosis) both from the University of British Columbia (Canada).
All interested are welcome!
