|The International Journal of Prognostics and Health Management (IJPHM) is the premier online open access journal related to multidisciplinary research on Prognostics, Diagnostics, and System Health Management. This special issue is focused on advances in research in battery management and battery health.
Rechargeable batteries are an integral part of a wide range of devices, including automotive vehicles, aerospace, grid, portable devices, and other mobility applications. Performance of batteries is impacted by environmental conditions such as ambient temperature and operational factors such as the amount of power drawn. Battery degradation and aging concerns impose bounds on charge/discharge currents or discharge depths. For mobility applications, weight and volume constraints impose practical limits on the useful range. As a result, battery management systems (BMS) have emerged as a necessity to manage batteries in an optimal fashion. The primary emphasis of BMS research is to extract maximum performance from rechargeable batteries while minimizing degradation and extending useful life.
