INnovative COst efficient management system for next generation high voltage BATteries

Objective

In recent years, electric mobility has been promoted as the clean and cost-efficient alternative to combustion engines. Although there are already solutions on the market, mass take-up has not yet taken place. There are different challenges that hinder this process from an end user point of view such as costs of the vehicle, driving range, or infrastructure support. Several of these challenges are directly connected to the battery, the central element of the full electric vehicle (FEV). The costs of the battery sum up to 40% of the total costs of a FEV, and the driving range of a FEV is strongly reduced in comparison to the combustion engine.\n\nThe aim of INCOBAT is to provide innovative and cost efficient battery management systems for next generation HV-batteries. To that end, INCOBAT will propose a platform concept in order to achieve cost reduction, reduced complexity, increased reliability as well as flexibility and higher energy efficiency.\n\nThe main outcomes of the project will be:\n- Very tight control of the cell function leading to an increase of the driving range of the FEV by 30% for current chemistry and by a factor of 10 and more by enabling the use of new cell chemistries such as LiS or even Li-air\n- Radical cost reduction of battery management system – factor of 10 (at least) with respect to current solutions\n- Development of modular concepts for system architecture and partitioning, safety, security, reliability as well as verification and validation, thus enabling efficient integration into different vehicle platforms.\n\nINCOBAT is in the position to provide a 100% European value chain for the development of next generation HV battery management systems.
