Software Extends Battery Life

North Carolina State University researchers have developed software able to identify and process data that could accurately estimate a battery’s remaining charge. The research is part of ongoing work designed to create efficient battery-management techniques. Conventional computer models for estimating remaining battery charge are not very accurate because of the many variables the model needs, including factors such as temperature and rate of charge. The researchers developed a way to update the computer model in real time, which increases the estimate’s accuracy to within 5 percent. They will present their work later this month at the 38th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society in Montreal, Canada. (PhysOrg)(North Carolina State University)
