This paper proposes a novel series-connected, self-reconfigurable, multicell battery design. A new cell switching circuit topology is proposed and implemented by using high-efficiency semiconductor devices for dynamic configuration of the multicell battery. Each cell in the battery only uses two switches to fully control its operation independently. The proposed design can maximally utilize the battery's capacity and is tolerant to failures of single or multiple cells. These prolong the… CONTINUE READING
