Peer-reviewed publication and presentation at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers National Aerospace Electronics Conference ( IEEE NAECON)-August 29, 2023
On August 29, Professor Mubenga and student attended the IEEE NAECON in Dayton where Sanjaya did a great job presenting the paper to an audience of engineers, researchers and professors in the field of AEROSPACE POWER SYSTEMS AND POWER ELECTRONICS.
This was the first time for Sanjaya to present at an IEEE conference and to have a peer-reviewed paper published!
Below you may find an abstract of the paper.
Abstract: Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular, and as a result, second-life EV batteries are being produced in copious quantities. When the EV battery capacity falls below 80% of its original capacity, it is no longer considered suitable for use in EVs. The end-of-life EV battery issue is becoming more pressing with the rising popularity of EVs. One of the most popular uses for these batteries is in stationary energy storage systems, but to do so efficiently, it is crucial to ensure that every cell within the battery stack is charged and balanced properly. This paper conducts a literature review and an overview of different equalization techniques that have been adopted or are being researched for second-life EV batteries. It also provides information on which method is more efficient by measuring the efficiency of the equalizer. This paper details the advantages and disadvantages of each technique and evaluates their effectiveness in balancing cell charges. It also reviews techniques to measure the efficiency of charge transfer during equalization.
