MOBI’s Battery Innovation Centre is the main Belgian expertise centre for research and development of energy storage systems for traction and stationary applications. It offers state-of-the-art facilities, tools and solutions for the energy storage systems market.
Energy Storage Systems (ESS) present key challenges for clean and energy efficient systems such as electric and hybrid propulsion systems. The Battery Innovation Centre develops dedicated battery, hybrid capacitor and supercapacitor models, battery management systems, thermal management systems and dedicated state estimation techniques (State-of-Charge, State-of-Health and State-of-Function indicators).
This expertise is based on in-depth experimental analysis. As such, we make an active contribution to international standardization, facilitating ESS benchmarking. Our extensive database of experimental results also enables more advanced modelling and benchmarking from ESS material to system levels.
The research done within the Battery Innovation Centre covers a wide variety of topics such as characterization, simulation and prototyping from small cell to large pack level. This includes but is not limited to:
