A supercapacitor-battery based hybrid energy storage system (HESS) for light Passenger EV application

Project Member(s): Zhang, N., Ji, J.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Changsha Xiangni Auto Technology Co Ltd (Changsha Xiangni Auto Technology Co Ltd Partner Funds)

Start year: 2015

Summary: CXAT will sign the technological contract with UTS to entrust the project to the research group directed by Professor Nong Zhang in UTS and Dr. Jincheng Ji as a primary member, to develop the project ┬┐A supercapacitor-battery based hybrid energy storage system (HESS) for light Passenger EV application┬┐. The plan is to develop two sets of demonstration systems, one of which is reserved for local verification and the other, delivered to customer use. Both sets will be tested 100% on the 1:1 UTS powertrain test rig at both hardware and software levels. Each level will include detailed specification and calibration of chosen key parameters.
