Title: USING BATTERY DC CHARACTERISTICS TO CONTROL POWER OUTPUT
Abstract:
Techniques are described for implementing automated control systems to control operations of specified physical target systems, such as with one or more batteries used to store and provide electrical power. Characteristics of each battery's state may be used to perform automated control of DC power from the battery, such as in a real-time manner and to optimize long-term operation of the battery. In some situations, multiple batteries are controlled by using multiple control systems each associated with one of the batteries, and with overall control being coordinated in a distributed manner using interactions between the multiple control systems. A system that includes one or more batteries to be controlled may further include additional components in some situations, such as one or more electrical sources and/or one or more electrical loads, with one non-exclusive example of a type of such system being one or more home electrical power systems.
