Introducing the New IEEE Electric Battery Video Series
by Jill Bagley - Monday, September 16, 2013, 08:22 AM
The IEEE eLearning Library is pleased to announce the release of a new video series highlighting Electric Vehicle Batteries.

Unlike the battery in a gasoline powered engine which primarily serves to start the engine and run accessories, the battery in an electric car runs everything. The electric vehicle battery powers a controller which runs the electric motor, so it needs to be powerful and long-lasting to travel with a minimum of recharging.The increased development effort in electric propulsion has caused battery
development to move ahead.

Through this video series, you will learn about battery design principles, including modeling for current-generation nickel metal hydride and lithium ion batteries, and next-generation batteries including thin-film electrolytes, lithium sulfur, lithium air, and zinc air. Battery cost requirements versus battery technology and subsequent vehicle range are also presented.

This video series will help you understand the electro-chemistry and manufacturing challenges faced by engineers as they strive to produce greater driving-range batteries. You will learn about the history of battery development, key terminology, and discuss various standards available for batteries.

To learn more about this series, view the list of available titles in the series.
