Palm Beach, FL – October 25, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Battery management system (BMS) is an important link between on-board power battery and electric vehicle, mainly used to diagnose battery temperature, current and power supply. Specific functions include: real-time monitoring of battery physical parameters, battery state estimation, online diagnosis and early warning, charge, discharge and precharge control, equilibrium management and thermal management. A battery management system in an electric vehicle manages a rechargeable battery to ensure it operates safely and efficiently. BMS is designed to monitor the parameters associated with the battery pack and its cells, apply the collected data to eliminate safety risks and optimize battery performance. According to a report from Mordor Intelligence, the global battery management system market is expected to reach USD 5.4 billion in 2022 and is projected to register a CAGR of over 4.85% during the forecast period (2022-2027). The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. Presently the market has now reached pre-pandemic levels. The report said: “Over the medium term, the growing demand for battery management systems is expected to stimulate the market growth of battery management systems. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles, the need for robust charging infrastructure, and the focus on increasing the energy efficiency of batteries are also expected to drive the growth of the market studied… Technological advancements in battery management systems with advantages, such as reduced complexity, better efficiency, and improved reliability, among others, are expected to provide growth opportunities in the forecast period.” Active stocks in news today include: KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE: KULR), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), QuantumScape Corporation (NYSE: QS), FREYR Battery (NYSE: FREY), NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NEE).
Mordor Intelligence continued: “The Asia-Pacific region dominates the market and is also likely to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the rapid rise in sales of electric vehicles in countries like China and Japan. This rise has been due to the extensive efforts of the governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Lithium-ion batteries are mostly used in EVs as they provide high energy density, low self-discharge, less weight, and low maintenance. For internal combustion engines (ICE) vehicles, the lead-based battery is being widely used and is expected to continue to be the only viable mass-market battery system for the foreseeable future.”
KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) BREAKING NEWS – KULR TECHNOLOGY BEGINS PHASE 2 BATTERY SAFETY TESTING FOR LOCKHEED MARTIN – Testing Utilizes KULR’s Leading Bomb Calorimeter Product – KULR Technology Group, (the “Company” or “KULR”), a leading energy management platform accelerating the electrification of the circular economy, has commenced Phase 2 development of its passive propagation resistant (“PPR”) battery systems for the Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) (“Lockheed”). Following a successful Phase 1 trial in November 2021, the testing for Phase 2 began in Summer 2022, utilizing KULR’s recently implemented bomb calorimeter and leveraging the Company’s technological advancements in PPR energy products for its Advanced Energy Systems.
A bomb calorimeter measures the total heat generated in a particular reaction. Data gathered with KULR’s bomb calorimeter can be used in combination with additional information collected from running experiments in the Company’s Fractional Thermal Runaway Calorimeter (“FTRC”), licensed from NASA, for similar cell types. The FTRC supports the determination of both the total amount of heat generated and the fraction of heat contained within the ejecta compared to that retained in the cell body. These compiled datapoints are critical for cell selection decisions and for designing battery systems that are safe against the unique cell level thermal runaway response.
In addition to serving NASA and defense contractors, the versatile FTRC also provides significant value to commercial leaning companies that wish to develop better battery pack and battery management system (“BMS”) designs.
“Lockheed Martin is a valued KULR customer, and we are encouraged to be jointly proceeding to Phase 2 in developing our PPR energy products for their Advanced Energy Systems,” said Dr. William Walker, KULR’s Director of Engineering. “We are confident our state-of-the-art technological capabilities will meet their needs and lead to a continued, longstanding partnership with one of the leading aerospace, arms, defense, information security, and technology companies in the world.”
KULR has developed a multitude of products to increase the performance of aerospace and U.S. Department of Defense (“DoD”) technologies and is continuing to research new and innovative thermal management and energy solutions.
