Lithium Ion BatteryThe Energy Department has offered grants to help several technology organizations develop software products, sensors and predictive algorithms for managing the performance of lithium-ion batteries, Gigacom reported Wednesday.

Katie Fehrenbacher writes Battelle designed an optical sensor that aims to detect internal battery faults, while General Electric built a miniaturized system to monitor battery pressure and temperature in real time.

A team comprised of PARC and LG-Chem is working on a fiber optic-based wavelength shift detector for electric car battery packs, according to Fehrenbacher.

Lawrence Livermore National Labs’ engineering team is building a wireless sensing technolgy with the goal of reducing the need for battery pack cables, according to the report.

Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis developed a modeling software to help manage battery cell charging and usage, according to the website.

The projects are funded under DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy program.
