## The importance of a good SOC estimator

This week, you will learn some rigorous definitions needed when discussing SOC estimation and some simple but poor methods to estimate SOC. As background to learning some better methods, we will review concepts from probability theory that are needed to be able to deal with the impact of uncertain noises on a system's internal state and measurements made by a BMS.

## Introducing the linear Kalman filter as a state estimator

This week, you will learn how to derive the steps of the Gaussian sequential probabilistic inference solution, which is the basis for all Kalman-filtering style state estimators. While this content is highly theoretical, it is important to have a solid foundational understanding of these topics in practice, since real applications often violate some of the assumptions that are made in the derivation, and we must understand the implication this has on the process. By the end of the week, you will know how to derive the linear Kalman filter.

## Coming to understand the linear Kalman filter

The steps of a Kalman filter may appear abstract and mysterious. This week, you will learn different ways to think about and visualize the operation of the linear Kalman filter to give better intuition regarding how it operates. You will also learn how to implement a linear Kalman filter in Octave code, and how to evaluate outputs from the Kalman filter.

## Cell SOC estimation using an extended Kalman filter

A linear Kalman filter can be used to estimate the internal state of a linear system. But, battery cells are nonlinear systems. This week, you will learn how to approximate the steps of the Gaussian sequential probabilistic inference solution for nonlinear systems, resulting in the "extended Kalman filter" (EKF). You will learn how to implement the EKF in Octave code, and how to use the EKF to estimate battery-cell SOC.

## Reviews

### TOP REVIEWS FROM BATTERY STATE-OF-CHARGE (SOC) ESTIMATION

Good and a very challenging course. Really makes you work to understand even the basic concepts. Challenging theoretical and practical assignments. Lot of learning obtained from this course

The course was well planned and organised! There is flexibility in the course deadline which is appreciable and suitable for students, Working professionals, faculties.

The concepts taught were absolutely crucial for the later parts of this specialization and they were explained properly.

Great course!!! I got hands on experience with all types of kalman filter for battery state estimation.

## Frequently Asked Questions

When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?

Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:

- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.

What will I get if I subscribe to this Specialization?

When you enroll in the course, you get access to all of the courses in the Specialization, and you earn a certificate when you complete the work. Your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

Is financial aid available?

Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You'll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. You'll need to complete this step for each course in the Specialization, including the Capstone Project.
