Equalizer Technology for Lithium Ion Batteries

Lithium ion batteries require an active equalizer (AEQ) or a bilevel equalizer (BEQ) to transfer charges between the series connected cells or sections of cells.  This research developed a suite of tools that are adequate for the design of BEQ and inductor based AEQs.  The AEQ Inductor tool, the Efficiency Measuring Apparatus, and the EQU Design App were tested and validated against physical experimentation.  The accuracy of these design tools proved to be higher than 98% compared to experimental results.  


 Dr. Ngalula Sandrine Mubenga, P.E. is an Assistant Professor at the Engineering Technology Department at the University of Toledo (UT), Ohio, USA where she received the BAchelor's (2005), Master's (2008) and Doctorate (2017) degrees in Electrical Engineering with honors.  Her research areas include battery management systems, electric vehicles, and renewable energy systesm.  Her battery research won the 2018 IEEE National Aerospace & Electronics Conference Best Poster Award in the USA, while her hybrid electric vehicle research won the 2008 University of Toledo EECS Department Most Outstanding Thesis Award.  Prior to this role, Sandrine was the Manager of Electrical Engineering at UT where she helped manage a $65 Million budget.  She is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Ohio, USA since 2011.  Sandrine is a Senior Member of IEEE and has received many awards including the 2018 IEEE Engineer of the Year Award from the Toledo Section.  She has also received the 2022 Outstanding African Achiever from the University of Pretoria's African Genius Award.
