Thesis work - Study of wireless communication in a battery system

Europe: Sweden
  • Gothenburg
Department: - not defined

Your Responsibilities:
  • Background: A BMS typically includes a battery-control unit (BCU) and module control units (MCUs) for a battery pack consisting of the battery modules and utilizes wired communication systems (e.g., CAN, I2C/SPI) for module communication. The wired-communication in the BMS requires the installation of a large and complicated extra wiring, which causes the critical wire-harness issues such as a physical connection failure under vibratory environment; complexed battery pack design due to the concerns about isolation, protection; limited battery pack shapes; and manufacturing difficulty. Therefore, these might lead to increased cost, weight, and size, as well as decreased productivity and reliability.The objective of the thesis is to do a market analysis of wireless communication on system level.
  • This is done by
  • performing qualitative assessment of different wireless systems based on cost, feasibility, reliability, and availability, security, etc.
  • Comparison of conventional state-of-the art wired communication with the wireless communication.
  • The duration period is one semester, 30 ECTS points and will be performed at AVL
  • Starting date: January 2020
  • Number of students: suitable for one student
  • Tools, MS Office
Your Profile:
  • We are looking for a highly motivated student from electric power or Automotive engineering field that have a genuine interest in cars.
  • Good knowledge on battery systems.
