The 2 kWh Deep-Water Lithium-ion Battery Power Pack (DLBPP) is a pressure-tolerant lithium-ion battery system that provides a reliable, long-endurance and longer lifetime power solution for underwater systems. Many unmanned or autonomous vehicles requires stable and long battery life for their operations. On-station time needs to be long so that the vehicle can spend more time to carry out its task.
The technology relates to a smart battery management system (SBMS) with high efficiency active cell balancing technology, intelligent self-learning state of charge (SOC) and state of health (SOH) prediction for the lithium-ion battery. The active cell balancing technology leads to 15% longer endurance and lengthens the lifetime of the battery for underwater applications. In addition, the 2 kWh battery stack module with SBMS is scalable and swappable to provide higher power capacity and increase flexibility in usage. A built-in pressure-resistant enclosure is included to increase power system reliability at high pressure conditions, up to 3000 m below sea level.
The technology owner is seeking partners to collaborate in various modes including technology licensing, consultancy project, research collaboration, etc.
