Integrated multilevel converter and battery management

By K. Wilkie, D. Stone, C. Bingham and M. Foster


A cascaded H-bridge multilevel converter is proposed as a BLDC drive incorporating real-time battery management. Intelligent H-bridges are used to monitor battery cells whilst simultaneously increasing their performance by reducing the variation between cells and controlling their discharge profiles
