MODEL PREDICTIVE CONTROL USING PHYSICS-BASED MODELS FOR ADVANCED BATTERY MANAGEMENT – TROY, MI 🗓

Meeting Date: Sept 19th, 2017
Time: 6:30 – 8:00 PM

Room Number: Main Auditorium

Model Predictive Control Using Physics-Based Models for Advanced Battery Management

Physics-based models (PBM) of lithium-ion batteries can describe internal cell behavior with surprising accuracy.  Recent advances in subspace-based model-order reduction enable these often highly complex, nonlinear electrochemical models to be rendered into forms no more demanding than familiar equivalent circuit models, and therefore make them candidates for embedded battery management schemes.

Model predictive control (MPC) has recently emerged as an effective real-time control strategy that employs a ‘look-ahead’ approach to foresee dynamic behaviors before they happen.   This approach – when coupled with an ability to enforce hard constraints on internal electrochemical variables that are precursors to degradation or unsafe operation – makes MPC particularly appealing for advanced battery management, where safety, lifetime and improved performance are key.

This presentation will review reduced-order modeling of physics-based battery models and illustrate the potential improvements in battery management that may be achieved by combining reduced-order PBM’s of lithium-ion cells with an MPC control strategy.

*** Note the New Meeting Location: **
Food Sponsor: Rohde & Schwarz
Cost: No Admission Charge
Date: 15 June 2017
Time: 05:30 PM to 07:30 PM
Location: Al Ameer Restaurant, 2100 N. Haggerty, Canton
Registration: events.vtools.ieee.org/meeting_registration/register/45664
Agenda:
5:30 Shish or Shawarma Sandwich, Rice, Bread, Hummus, Salad and water or Coke.
6:00 Presentation — SPEAKER Scott Niemiec of Rohde & Schwarz
Abstract: Pre-Selection is an often misunderstood concept, especially with both spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers using the term in different contexts. This presentation will review how the standards reference pre-selection, both CISPR and MIL-STD461. The differences in the pre-selection architectures of spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers will be covered with an emphasis on why they are different. To drive home the value of pre-selection, videos showing different measurement results with and without pre-selection will be shown and discussed.
Biography: Scott Niemiec is an Applications Engineer with Rohde & Schwarz, supporting the Central US from his base in the Chicago area. In addition to his extensive support of Spectrum & Network Analyzers for general purpose testing, Scott is also one of the primary Application Engineers supporting EMC test equipment and systems and radar test applications throughout the US. Before joining Rohde & Schwarz in 2012, Scott was a R&D Engineer with Nokia Siemens Networks in Arlington Heights, IL and prior to that he worked as a Senior Staff RF Engineer for Motorola Solutions in Arlington Heights, IL. Scott has extensive background in research and development of complex RF architectures for wireless communication equipment and systems. He holds a BSEE from Michigan Technological University.

GM Heritage Center Tour 🗓

— the ultimate automotive enthusiast’s garage, 150 vehicle exhibits, a living repository of automotive history —

Wednesday, June 14
GM Heritage Center Tour
8:30 – 10:00 a.m.
6400 Center Drive, Sterling Heights

SAE Detroit Section has arranged this exclusive tour, which normally is only open to GM employees, analysts and the media. The GM Heritage Center is not just a museum, but a cross between the ultimate automotive enthusiast’s garage and a living repository of automotive history.

In 2008, General Motors opened the GM Heritage Center to coincide with their 100 year anniversary. This facility plays a key role in showcasing the company’s rich history of success and its strong engineering capability.

More than 150 vehicle exhibits and historical memorabilia representing 10 decades are represented. The vehicle collection showcases a wide range of GM design, technology, and innovation. Guests will have the opportunity to see past and current concept vehicles, muscle cars, as well as historically significant vehicles form various eras. The center is always changing with vehicle exhibits being constantly freshened.

By highlighting the exciting designs, groundbreaking technology, and powerful brands that have comprised GM’s first century, the GM Heritage Center will help inspire new generations of enthusiasts and make the company even stronger in years to come as GM moves toward a second century of operations. This is evident by great designs, both legendary and recent, like the sixth generation Corvette, Cadillac 16 Concept Vehicle, and the Pontiac Solstice.

This is a great opportunity for SAE members to mentor a young professional, take advantage of the landscape, and experience the history.

The tour is limited to SAE members and their guests. Pre-registration is required.
