Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A complete battery system consists of many hundreds of individual cells connected in series and/or parallels, and through cell interconnects, control circuits, and cabling and thermal management. Manufacturing tolerances coupled with demanding duty cycles and a heterogeneous environment, particularly the presence of thermal differences within the battery system, result in significant variations in the rate of cell degradation and the energy distribution amongst the cells. Within the field of battery system design and integration, a key enabling technology is the design of the battery management system (BMS). This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality review and research articles related to the topic of battery management systems for lithium-ion battery research and applications for BMS development and implementation. We encourage researchers from various fields within the journal’s scope to contribute their papers highlighting the latest research and developments in their research field, or to invite other relevant experts and colleagues to participate. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • State-of-the-art technologies and new developments for BMS applications;
  • Review articles for Li-ion BMS research and applications;
  • The design, verification, and implementation of enhanced algorithms for battery control and monitoring, including: state-of-charge (SOH), state-of-power (SOP), state-of-health (SOH), and state-of-function (SOF);
  • Battery diagnostic and prognostic functions;
  • Battery system thermal management;
  • Smart Li-ion BMS development;
  • Small-scale and large-scale Li-ion BMS integration;
  • Control development and optimisation for BMS functionalities;
  • Active battery balancing control features, topologies, and integration;
  • The role of the BMS in extending battery pack functionality and service life (e.g., second life and vehicle-to-grid operation);
  • Functional safety within the context of BMS design and verification;
  • Security and privacy in BMS development.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
