Scientist at the University of San Diego – California have found and test new algorithms of charging lithium-ion battery. This method pronounces a half time charging battery cells and they run more efficiently. The mathematical algorithm estimate sales cost production by 25 percent and more.
The group was awarded from the Department of Energy’s ARPA-E ($460,000 ) for continuing research for further update the algorithm and companying the battery manufacturer Cobasys and also cars company Bosch, which both received the grant of a $9.6 million.
The diagram (Charging Lithium-ion) shows the critical phases of charging lithium-ion batteries. We can see four stages of charging and every stage is algorithmic controlled with optimus charging current and voltage peak.
This is great but does this solution will ever find practical use in the electric cars industry ?
