In the first part of this lecture, we explained why stress, caused by charging to the maximum and discharging to the minimum, is a major e-bike battery lifetime factor. James explains how charge controlling can work in Battery Management Systems (BMS) or in Smart Chargers, such that this does not prevent the e-bike user from using the full range.
With temperature being the other major lifetime factor, he discusses the do’s and don’ts in e-bike battery enclosure design.
The lecture is followed by an optional Q & A session (delegates may also raise their individual battery design issues) and –when time allows- bonus lectures, addressing important e-bike battery issues.
