Battery Pack Modeling

Build battery models using MATLAB and Simscape

Simscape™ Battery™ includes MATLAB® objects and methods to automate the creation of Simscape battery models. These MATLAB objects allow you to define your own battery design specifications, visualize your battery in a 3-D space, customize the modeling resolution during simulation, and generate a Simulink® library that contains your custom generated battery blocks. You can use these blocks to assist with virtual battery design and verification, help develop battery control algorithms using Simulink, explore design sensitivities, and design thermal management strategies.

You can develop and test battery control strategies by simulating your custom battery blocks with the blocks in the Battery Management System (BMS) library of Simscape Battery. You can also thermally couple your custom battery models in Simulink with the blocks in the Thermal Management System library. Alternatively, you can define your own custom battery control and cooling system blocks.
