Professor Scott Moura received a prestigious NSF Career Award for the project, Estimation and Control of Electrochemical-Thermal Battery Models: Theory and Experiments.
The project will benefit national interests by advancing knowledge on battery management systems based on electrochemical-thermal models. Batteries are the linchpin technology for multiple economic sectors, including consumer electronics, transportation, and electric power systems. However, today's battery management systems use simplistic models, which have raised serious performance and safety issues.
