Increasingly, Na-ion batteries have generated a lot of interest over the years due to their low production costs and the ease of obtaining raw materials, among other things. Unfortunately, because of their poor durability and unsatisfactory electrochemical capacity, they are still not seen as a reliable alternative to the most popular and expensive lithium-ion cells.  Researchers at WUT are working on solving this problem. Their project is being implemented under ENERGYTECH-1 research grant.

From a research grant to a patent: a multithreaded controller for energy conversion systems in electromobility

Block diagram and simulation results for the drive system.

The construction of control systems in power electronic transformation systems employs two control methods utilising a cascade control scheme with feedback from individual object outputs and controllers with feedback from the vector of variables of an object state. And what if these two concepts are merged? Researchers at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology have undertaken this task.
