Introduction Start of the test Battery management system (BMS) is an on-board integrated part for an electric vehicle (EV) and must perform certain tasks in real time to provide high storage RPT test at 25˚C utilization, long lifetime and safe operation. Biggest challenge in BMS, is accurate battery state estimation. This work focuses on algorithms with functions of Cycling at 15/25/40/50/60/˚C for 100 cycles estimating these states such as state of charge (SOC), state of health (SOH) and additionally, functions to calculate cell/pack voltage and to estimate required 1c charge/ RPT test at 25˚C resistances and capacitances for further processes. Aside from the slight discharge differences in manufacturing process of the commercial cells, some cells within Cell capacity<80% initial capacity the battery pack can be exposed to elevated temperatures based on their location, No different mechanical stresses such as compression or vibrations and many other Yes factors which affect their performance like loose connections and wirings. All these will eventually lead to inhomogeneity among the cells and brings different End of Test (Cell EOL) aging levels and SOC variations between them. Therefore in this work we suggest Figure 1.

Experimental Test setup includes high capacity battery cyclers (up to 1200A), Temperature chambers (600L Temperature and humidity control), fast data acquisition systems, hardware in the loop system (HIL) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) meters among others. High power pouch LIBs with NMC technology are used for the experiments, these are same cells used in the EVA battery pack, an electric taxi developed for Singapore . Reference performance tests (RPT) as well as drive cycle tests were performed on single cell; modules and the battery pack itself. To study the temperature and aging effects on cell performance and monitoring algorithms, Cells underwent accelerated aging tests at various temperatures as shown in figure 1. For each test plan, three cells are used to achieve statistically reliable results. After every 100 cycles (cycle life aging), EIS and Hybrid pulse power Characterization (HPPC) and drive cycle tests as part of RPT tests were repeated on the cells until cell’s end of life (EOL). 3. Results and Discussion From the experimental, test data were used to develop real time up-scalable equivalent circuit model (ECM) simulating driving cycle as shown in figure 2. ECM models are studied at  to create voltage simulation model for single cell. Additionally algorithms were developed and adopted to estimate state SOC and SOH of the individual cells within the battery pack by EKF to evaluate the pack performance since the SOC/capacity of the pack is influenced by the lowest SOC/capacity of the cell within the pack. The work is developed in offline mode and evaluated in real time with HIL setup. After evaluation of the models and algorithms, the code is optimizes to use for in house developed BMS. Algorithms are proven to be stable, fast convergence and low cost efficient. Figure 2.
