Innovation & Technical Excellence

The objectives of the BattMan project are:

Obj1 – Improved Battery Chemistry and battery packs for predictable, reliable, safe, and long life
Obj2 – Improved Battery Management Systems (BMS) for ensuring specifications, including state-of-
health (SoH) and state-of-charge (SoC) reporting, cell balancing and temperature
Obj3 – Enhanced efficiency of the overall energy chain in the system, including maximization of
system performance for both the application requirements and battery lifetime
Obj4 – System integration of electronics with photovoltaic panels, PV optimization and the
application of systems to allow support of the smart grid over the internet
Obj5 – System and prototype designs for the demonstrator application of the outdoor, solarpowered
Off-grid Street Lighting (OSL)
