Using Battery Management Systems for EVs, HEVs, & PHEVs

Early electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) used either lead-acid batteries or NiMH batteries for storage. However, these batteries were not optimal: EVs, HEVs, and PHEVs require impressive energy storage that even NiMH batteries, with a 68Wh/kg specific energy, aren’t capable of. In search of higher energy-efficiency, many…
