Double-Tiered Switched-Capacitor Battery Charge Equalization Technique

  title={Double-Tiered Switched-Capacitor Battery Charge Equalization Technique},
  author={Andrew C. Baughman and Mehdi Ferdowsi},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics},
The automobile industry is progressing toward hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric vehicles in their future car models. The energy storage unit is one of the most important blocks in the power train of future electric-drive vehicles. Batteries and/or ultracapacitors are the most prominent storage systems utilized so far. Hence, their reliability during the lifetime of the vehicle is of great importance. Charge equalization of series-connected batteries or ultracapacitors is essential due… CONTINUE READING
