Motor Vehicles
Modular Energy Systems for Vehicular Applications
Arash Kalatbarisoltani, Loïc Boulon, David Lupien St-Pierre

The series connection of cells in a battery pack, like in any chain, means that performance is limited by the weakest cell. Cell-to-cell variations increase over time, and lead to limited pack capacity and power, and uneven temperature distribution. Modular Energy Systems are useful to integrate generic sources.  Read More...
