The aim of INCOBAT is to provide innovative and cost efficient battery management systems for next generation HV-batteries. To that end, INCOBAT will propose a platform concept in order to achieve cost reduction, reduced complexity, increased reliability as well as flexibility and higher energy efficiency.

The main outcomes of the project will be:

  • very tight control of the cell function leading to an increase of the driving range of the FEV for current chemistry and by enabling the use of new cell chemistries such as LiFeS or Lithium Manganese Dioxide (LiMnO2)
  • radical cost reduction of battery management system with respect to current solutions
  • development of modular concepts for system architecture and partitioning, safety, security, reliability as well as verification and validation, thus enabling efficient integration into different vehicle platforms

Ideas & Motion is involved in design and development of an highly complex algorithm for SoH based on Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) methodology.
