A cascaded H-bridge BLDC drive incorporating battery management

By K. Wilkie, D. A. Stone, M. P. Foster and Chris Bingham


A multilevel BLDC drive is proposed using cascaded H-bridges with isolated sources to provide superior output waveforms and reduced current ripple whilst incorporating observer based SoC estimation. Energy management, based on SoC, is incorporated to improve battery performance, reduce variation between cells and to control charge/discharge profiles
