This paper discusses a control network organization for industrial battery management. The battery network is logically partitioned into strings containing groups of cells. These groups of cells are managed locally by distributed control nodes that communicate through the local controller area network (CAN). Battery information is communicated to the remote user through TCP/IP. Both CAN and TCP/IP are connected through the gateway database, allowing for transitions from the battery process time and data volume domain into that of the remote user. The system architecture is based on multiple concurrent processes that facilitate necessary battery monitoring and charge management as well as availability of timely interaction with remote users. Autonomy of these processes is encouraged through the distributed data storage organization. Modeling and testing of the proposed architecture reflects the potential capacity for managing battery requirements and network traffic. Scalability of the approach to suit battery network size may also prove useful to serve other similar applications.
