DigiTwins for Solar Battery Systems
Find a courseExpand
The aim of this project is the development of digital twins for battery packs applied to solar-battery systems. Running in parallel with the physical/real counterpart, digital twins are a cost-effective proposition for sensing easy-to-access battery parameters and implementing advanced control strategies. Considering the delivery of the new state-of-the-art Engineering and Architecture buildings at the Headington site, this project aims to develop a digital twin framework for solar-battery systems applied to commercial buildings, able to optimise load profiles and minimise costs.
The two main objectives are:
- To acquire field data from the new building's battery system (considered the “real twin”). Measurements include voltage, current and temperature profiles.
- To develop hybrid models that combine the advantages of physical and data-driven models.
The proposed research project is a collaboration between the HVES Group and the Architectural Engineering
Research Group. The student will work closely with both groups, interacting with key staff and spending an
induction period in the related laboratories.
