Under the ARPA-E Advanced Management and Protection of Energy Storage Devices (AMPED) program, Utah State University (USU) and its project partners set out to create a first-of-its kind advanced cell-level BMS that actively maximizes the performance of each individual cell within a battery pack. The key performance goals for the USU effort were to reduce cell imbalance across the pack by over half, and to extend pack lifetime by 20%.

United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) focused on designing a high-power cell that extracted more power without increasing the scale of the expensive components, ultimately reducing the capital cost of the stack per watt of power generated. Key cell innovations borrowed heavily from the polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell design and included the use of interdigitated flow field for efficient reactant delivery, and incorporation of thin electrodes for improved mass transfer and reaction kinetics.

The ARPA-E award supported Varentec’s research and development of a low-cost, fractionally-rated, power flow control device that uses controlled series voltage injections in series with transmission lines to control power flows. The project goal was the prototype demonstration of a 1MVA power flow controller for electric utility distribution systems (12.47 kV).
