Monitoring System for Battery Cells

The main objective of this project is to develop disruptive technologies, aimed at solving challenges related with decarbonization and energy communities using sustainable energy. One specific goal was to take advantage of the higher number of second-life-batteries hitting the market, due to the enormous growth of hybrid and electric vehicles sales in the last years. This batteries have high potential to be used in energy storage compartments.

Purpose / Benefits

  • Monitor the state-of-health (SoH) of second-life batteries, not only to optimize their life-span, but to avoid catastrophic failure such as thermal runway
  • Printed temperature and strain gauge sensors offer the possibility of monitoring each individual cell on the battery, due to low thickness and high scalability
  • Allows a much tighter control of the battery and to pinpoint which cell is defective
