Situationally aware innovative battery management system for next generation vehicles

Project Objectives

InnoBMS will develop and validate a novel wireless BMS design such that it can significantly improve overall battery performance. Specifically, InnoBMS will seek to achieve:​

  • a 12% higher effective battery pack volumetric density, ​
  • a 33% longer battery lifetime, and ​
  • a demonstrated battery lifetime of 15 years. ​

The results will be demonstrated using novel testing methods that give a 36% reduction in the testing time of a BMS. The results will be demonstrated in two use cases, one light commercial vehicle (Fiat Doblo Electric) and one medium-duty van (IVECO eDaily). The key outcomes will enable a cost reduction of 12% and 9.7% for passenger cars and light-duty vehicles, respectively.


Typhoon’s role as a project partner

Typhoon HIL is responsible for leading the testing, validation and demonstration activities, with a focus on performing C-HIL tests of the wireless BMS control card for passenger (400 V) and fleet vehicles (up to 1000 V) ahead of full-stack testing. This includes:​

  • Cell-level emulation of the battery system​
  • Interfacing of the wireless BMS hardware with real-time test equipment​
  • ISO 15118 compatible EV charging infrastructure emulation​
  • Integration with VUB’s cloud-based Open vehicle Powertrain Platform to simulate real driving conditions
