Abstract:

TSC and Purdue University will demonstrate a lab prototype of software and hardware capable of doing high speed monitoring of a Lithium-Ion cell. This monitoring needs to be specifically designed to predict failures. When a predictive failure is indicated a defensive countermeasure needs to be implemented. Our specific project goals are to: 1) Select a Lithium-Ion battery that consists of multiple cells. 2) Develop a list of common failure modes for Lithium-Ion cells specific to the selected battery. 3) Develop a list of specific data that needs to be collected that would allow the prediction of failure modes for this battery. 3) Develop a defensive countermeasure for each listed failure mode. 4) Develop a hardware monitoring architecture that will be attached to a Lithium-Ion cell/battery to monitor the desired points. 5) Develop a hardware safety architecture that will be attached to a Lithium-Ion cell/battery to implement when a failure mode is predicted. 6) Create a software program on a PC that controls the monitoring hardware and can then trigger the appropriate defensive countermeasure. 7) Analyze the hardware and software that have been designed and determine the method to scale to a deployable state
