The industrial landscape is undergoing a rapid transformation. The increasing demand for electrical power and growing dependence on battery pack energy storage have underlined the importance of battery management systems (BMSs). The use of BMS can ensure safe operation, maximum performance, and optimal battery pack lifespan under various charge-discharge conditions.

Unlocking BMS Potential with Simulink and Model-Based Design

To make a good BMS, you need to fully understand how a battery pack changes over time, test all possible scenarios thoroughly, look into different software architectures, and do hardware testing early on in the design process. Simulating BMS with Simulink® and model-based design offers a robust platform for engineers and researchers to achieve precisely this.

Elevating BMS with Model-Based Design

Model-based design goes a step further, offering a robust foundation for all design and development activities, including:

  • Desktop simulation of the design’s functional aspects
  • Formal verification and validation of industry standards
  • C or HDL code generation for real-time testing and implementation.

In this video, we discuss how you can develop battery management systems using Simulink and model-based design.
