A Smarter Battery Management System
Data-driven Battery Management Systems (BMS) models become inaccurate over time due to degeneration and environmental changes. Physics-based BMS models are often too slow to provide useful real-time information. Alone, each have their issues; together they create a BMS model with huge potential gains. Hybrid Twin™ combines both models to produce a real-time, accurate system. Find out why this is what you need to reassure your customers that they’re getting the best monitoring and predicting BMS.
