The book will introduce the reader to past and present battery technology then delve into the current research and future applications of the technology. The book will guide the reader in profiling of the system load, specification of the battery, and design of the charging system. The book will outline specific Battery Management System strategies and discuss the tradeoffs of the different strategies. Battery technology, improved energy density and longevity are all currently in very high demand. At the same time, applications information regarding the proper conditioning and maintenance of batteries for optimum performance is lacking. A survey of battery technology is needed to explain the present state and future developments of the technology to meet the informational requirements of a rapidly growing field. What you'll learn The book will provide: (1) a description of battery technology; (2) a breakdown of commercially available and proposed technologies; (3) the application for each battery technology, including its fitness for the intended use; (4) a discussion of potential implementations and future use of battery technology; (5) topics of load, charge, and discharge characterization to guide a system designer in their choice of batteries and charging systems; (6) characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses of different battery chemistries as an aid to choosing the correct battery for the intended system design. Who this book is for Potential audience groups include: Electrical and design engineers, mobile and transportation platform developers, students of engineering, individuals or groups interested in battery technology.
