The face of the industrial marketplace is changing at an unprecedented rate. The increasing demand for electrical power and growing dependence on battery pack energy storage have underlined the importance of battery management systems (BMSs). The use of BMS can ensure safe operation, maximum performance, and optimal battery pack lifespan under various charge-discharge conditions.

Simulating BMS using Simulink® and Model-Based Design allows engineers and researchers to reduce design errors by gaining insight into a battery pack’s dynamic behavior, testing operational cases, exploring software architectures, and performing hardware testing early in the design process. In addition to that, Model-Based Design also lets engineers and researchers to use your battery management system model as the foundation for all your design and development activities, including:

  • Desktop simulation of the design’s functional aspects
  • Formal verification and validation of industry standards
  • C- or HDL code generation for real-time testing and implementation.

In this video, we discuss how you can develop battery management systems using Simulink and Model-Based Design.

You will learn about:

  • Battery management systems (BMS): battery management system development with Simulink
  • Battery modeling: How to model batteries when designing battery-powered systems using Simulink and Simscape
  • Battery state of charge: Balancing and state of charge (SOC) estimation
  • Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing: how to perform HIL simulation to validate and test battery management systems.
