Battery Management Systems Development with Simulink and Model-Based Design

Arpad Forberger

Battery management system (BMS) simulation allows you to gain insight into the dynamic behavior of a battery pack, test operational cases, explore software architectures, and perform hardware testing early in the design process.

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). 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 you 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 allows you 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.
