About the Authors
  • This fundamental guide teaches readers the basics of battery design for electric vehicles. Working through this book, you will understand how to optimise battery performance and functionality, whilst minimising costs and maximising durability. Beginning with the basic concepts of electrochemistry, the book moves on to describe implementation, control and management of batteries in real vehicles, with respect to the battery materials. It describes how to select cells and batteries with explanations of the advantages and disadvantages of different battery chemistries, enabling readers to put their knowledge into practice and make informed and successful design decisions, with a thorough understanding of the trade-offs involved. The first of its kind, and written by an industry expert with experience in academia, this is an ideal resource for both students and researchers in the fields of battery research and development as well as for professionals in the automotive industry extending their interest towards electric vehicles.

    • The first practical book devoted to electric vehicle battery design
    • The author has experience in academia, and is also an industry expert
    • Provides practical guidelines for battery and cell selection
    • Includes a foreword by Leif Johansson, Chairman of Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson and AstraZeneca PLC, and former CEO of the Volvo Group

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This well-written book provides a broad overview of batteries, especially lithium-ion batteries, for electric vehicles. The scope and depth of information presented is most suited for a beginner, yet persons with experience in the field will be able to broaden their knowledge. The attention paid to details will be valuable to those seeking design guidance for practical battery applications.' Daniel P. Abraham, Argonne National Laboratory

    'The strength of the book lies in its simplicity and clarity. … it achieves its intended purpose of enabling the reader to make informed choices to optimize battery performance.' N. Balasubramanian, Materials Research Society Bulletin
