About the Course

In this course, you will learn the purpose of each component in an equivalent-circuit model of a lithium-ion battery cell, how to determine their parameter values from lab-test data, and how to use them to simulate cell behaviors under different load profiles. By the end of the course, you will be able to: - State the purpose for each component in an equivalent-circuit model - Compute approximate parameter values for a circuit model using data from a simple lab test - Determine coulombic efficiency of a cell from lab-test data - Use provided Octave/MATLAB script to compute open-circuit-voltage relationship for a cell from lab-test data - Use provided Octave/MATLAB script to compute optimized values for dynamic parameters in model - Simulate an electric vehicle to yield estimates of range and to specify drivetrain components - Simulate battery packs to understand and predict behaviors when there is cell-to-cell variation in parameter values...

Superb course, well explained. The instructor made difficult concept look so easy. Honors content has some good insights into design of electric vehicles battery pack.

Useful information, but definitely disappointing that you can easily get 100% throughout the course and then be caught by surprise on a capstone project that requires significant Matlab knowledge beyond the scope of the rest of the course material.

The course is good. I did learn a lot. But, it will be more useful to provide some guidance in the capstone project. For example, some testing data to validate before submission. It would make it easier to troubleshoot. The submission feedback did not provide enough information to know why the code did not pass.

Would have been a lot better if the final programming assignment had any support for questions.

Very good course which explains how to simulate lithium ion cells and battery packs under different charge, discharge and temperature using equivalent enhanced self correcting model for accurate estimation of parameters under working load conditions.

The pathetic thing is the assignments are evaluated for exact answer only like no range in answers even for decimal answers and mentors are not active also never helps even in discussion forums.

Excellent content. The instructor is immensely knowledgeable. I would recommend this course 10/10 even for experienced professionals. But Coursera needs to improve their grading system on the projects. It only accepts answers in a certain format.

This, together with Course 3 (SOC estimation) was the most interesting course in the specialization. The course simply explains the dynamic model of lithium battery, and how to estimate model parameters based on lab test data.

The content for this course is great, the duration of each topic was clearly illustrated. Thanks to Dr.Gregory L Plett and Coursera team for providing me a wonderful opportunity to learn.

Thank You

This specialist is a great combination of material, electrical and computer engineering, this cross-discipline knowledge leads to a BMS design which is very practical, you will have a clear purpose of learning.

Good class for the fundamentals. I would highly recommend the honors if you don't use Octave. It's a good crash course. Also, take the time to look at some for the underlying code supplied for each lesson.

Excelent course for learning battery modeling and simulation. The concepts on modeling and simulation can be applied to any application besides electrochemical batteries.

Perfect amount of knowledge prepared with great care. Not too easy for someone with experience on the field of BMS and MatLab/Octave simulation. Many useful information.

Dr. Plett is a great professor! His examples were very insightful and easy to understand. I really enjoyed this course. The only thing that I wish had gone better was the student-mentor interaction. Everything was going well until the last week with the capstone assignment. I really enjoyed learning about the simulation and spent a lot of time trying to submit my assignment. Although my answers were correct, there is an issue with the grader and the submission process that made me waste a lot of time. If this could be fixed, it would be a much better experience.

It could have been a lot better if the full octave codes were provided. Notebooks do not give efficient control of workspace. I downloaded the toolboxes from Dr. Plett's UC website but they are different than the content in notebooks which are tailored for the course. There is a gap between the two. I hope it will be clarified in the future.

Most part of the course was very knowledgeable and interesting. Only there were few issues in updating the Capstone assignment to the latest version which was solved after multiple interactions with coursera support team
