Many EV suppliers utilize inefficient approaches for testing the vehicle’s electronic subsystems, including the battery management system (BMS), cell monitors, safety interlocks, and charging systems. For example, use of either live li-ion cells or conventional power supplies and loads produces unsatisfactory results. Limitations with these approaches include safety, repeatability, efficiency and test coverage. Use of traditional, vendor-defined test systems limit the flexibility and scalability of the system.
In this presentation, Peter will address BMS and battery electronic test techniques using commercially available cell simulators and fault insertion units. In addition, Peter will present several different test applications throughout the BMS development lifecycle from R&D test bench, validation through production.
