In this lecture, I will give an overview of hybrid and electric vehicle systems, battery technologies, the charging infrastructure, and grid integration. Electric vehicles aren't just an efficient way to move people and products - they are literally powering the transition to a clean energy economy. We will go into the details of Lithium-ion battery technology and the importance of designing a robust Battery Management Systems (BMS) to manage the charging and discharging of a battery while providing estimates on the health of the battery during its use.


Dr. Simona Onori is an Assistant Professor in Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University where she also holds a courtesy appointment in Electrical Engineering. Upon joining the Stanford faculty, she funded and currently directs the Stanford Energy Control lab where she leads a team of graduate/undergraduate students, postdocs and international visiting scholars conducting cutting edge research on experiments, modeling, control and optimization algorithms od energy storage and conversation systems in transportation and grid-storage applications. She is the recipient of the 2020 U.S. DoE Clean Energy Education & Empowerment (C3E) Award, Category Research, the 2019 Board of Trustees Award for Excellence, Clemson University, the 2018 Global Innovation Contest Award by LG Chem, the 2018 SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award and the 2017 NSF CAREER award. She earned a Laurea Degree in Computer Science from University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of New Mexico, and a PhD. in Control Engineering from University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. She was research scientist at Ohio State University before joining the faculty of Clemson University International Center of Automotive Research.
