Equivalent Circuit Cell Model Simulation

In this specialization, you will learn the major functions that must be performed by a battery management system, how lithium-ion battery cells work and how to model their behaviors mathematically, and how to write algorithms (computer methods) to estimate state-of-charge, state-of-health, remaining energy, and available power, and how to balance cells in a battery pack.

Course Description

In this course, you will learn the purpose of each component in an equivalent-circuit model of a lithium-ion battery cell, how to determine their parameter values from lab-test data, and how to use them to simulate cell behaviors under different load profiles. By the end of the course, you will be able to:-State the purpose for each component in an equivalent-circuit model-Compute approximate parameter values for a circuit model using data from a simple lab test-Determine coulombic efficiency of a cell from lab-test data -Use provided Octave/MATLAB script to compute open-circuit-voltage relationship for a cell from lab-test data-Use provided Octave/MATLAB script to compute optimized values for dynamic parameters in model-Simulate an electric vehicle to yield estimates of range and to specify drivetrain components-Simulate battery packs to understand and predict behaviors when there is cell-to-cell variation in parameter values

Useful information, but definitely disappointing that you can easily get 100% throughout the course and then be caught by surprise on a capstone project that requires significant Matlab knowledge beyond the scope of the rest of the course material.

Good class for the fundamentals. I would highly recommend the honors if you don't use Octave. It's a good crash course. Also, take the time to look at some for the underlying code supplied for each lesson.

A fundamental course for any engineer interested in battery control algorithms.

The content for this course is great, the duration of each topic was clearly illustrated. Thanks to Dr.Gregory L Plett and Coursera team for providing me a wonderful opportunity to learn.Thank YouRegardsSuresh Kumar

The course is good. I did learn a lot. But, it will be more useful to provide some guidance in the capstone project. For example, some testing data to validate before submission. It would make it easier to troubleshoot. The submission feedback did not provide enough information to know why the code did not pass.

Would have been a lot better if the final programming assignment had any support for questions.
