Abstract: Li-ion battery (LiB) has disrupted the world of energy storage thereby creating a pathway for a sustainable future relying on intermittent renewable energy sources. It is expected that the market for LiB will exceed 400 GWh per year from 2025 onwards. The talk will summarize an overview of the R&D program at the University of Twente in advanced battery power electronics and battery evaluation. This includes the development of a new generation of advanced BMS concepts based on advanced power electronics. In addition, an overview will be presented of performance and aging including implications on safety and second-life batteries.
Speaker Biography: Prasanth Venugopal received the B.Tech. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University, Coimbatore, India, in 2010, and the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering and the Ph.D. degree from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 2012, and 2018, respectively.
