This paper investigates the development of an open circuit voltage (OCV) prediction technique for lithium cells. The underlying principal of the technique described in this paper employs one simple equation to predict the equilibrated cell voltage after a small rest period. The technique was tested and verified by using results obtained from experiments(More)
This paper presents a review and analysis of failure detection methods of composites materials systems and development and application of a bamboo bicycle. The paper begins by presenting the current market condition of composites materials and in particular, carbon fibre and carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRF). The work proceeds to investigate the(More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of an open circuit voltage (OCV) prediction mechanism for Li-ion based battery systems. This approach involves the development of a simulation model incorporating Li-ion cells, modules and later the PV-battery system. The simulation model is used to analyse the effect of the prediction mechanism and is(More)
This paper investigates the design of an optimal battery management system for hybrid electric vehicles to allow performance improvements. Battery management systems are an important subsystem for hybrid electric vehicles, which ensure that the batteries are operating within the specified safe operating conditions. Thus, the design of a battery management(More)
