Using deep learning to predict parameters of batteries on electric vehicles

[ad_1] A flow chart of how the technique used by the researchers preprocesses vehicle and meteorological data. Credit: Hong et al. The batteries used to power electric vehicles have several key characterizing parameters, including voltage, temperature, and state of change (SOC). As battery faults are associated with abnormal fluctuations in these parameters, effectively predicting them […]

Jumbo electric vehicle has energy bragging rights at no charge

[ad_1] Enticed car watchers see e-car designs that look like James Bond-like sleekmobiles ready for valet parking near some island casino. Meanwhile, what about the other world of heavy-duty trucks for mining and construction? No way, have said skeptics, because battery needs made this idea impractical. E&T explained that experts had been debating “whether the […]

The electric vehicle revolution has a visibility problem

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain Which comes first: the electric vehicle or the charging station? That question has perplexed some experts and officials tasked with nurturing the electrification of transportation in American cities. Some have a clear view: “If you can’t imagine ownership because you can’t see the infrastructure, or the infrastructure’s not there, the […]

Electric car charging stations may be portals for power grid cyberattacks
