The objectives of the BattMan project are:

  1. Improved battery chemistry and battery packs for predictable, reliable, safe, and long life operation
  2. Improved battery management systems for ensuring specifications, including state-of-health (SoH) and state-of-charge (SoC) reporting, cell balancing and temperature stabilization
  3. Enhanced efficiency of the overall energy chain in the system, including maximization of system performance for both the application requirements and battery lifetime
  4. System integration of electronics with photovoltaic panels, PV optimization and the application of systems to allow support of the smart grid over the internet
  5. System and prototype designs for the demonstrator application of the Solar-powered Off-grid Street Lighting
