Uniresearch was hired by the consortium for proposal development and coordination, resulting in a successful application. In SENSIBAT, Uniresearch is project manager and, together with Politecnico Di Torino, responsible for the dissemination and communication activities.
SENSIBAT’s overall objective is to develop a sensing technology for Li-ion batteries that measures in real-time the internal battery cell temperature, pressure (e.g. mechanical strain, gas evolution) conductivity and impedance (separately for the anode, cathode and electrolyte). The data and insights from these new sensing technologies will be used for the development of improved state estimator functions based on an improved understanding of how, where and when degradation and failure mechanisms occur.
Improved understanding about the nature and timing of unwanted internal battery processes enables faster and more accurate control of the individual cells in a battery system during operation. More accurate control enables faster charging and battery state forecasting resulting in a longer battery lifetime.
The project consortium consists of 12 partners from
7 EU countries.
