GHOST: InteGrated and PHysically Optimised Battery System for Plug-in Vehicles Technologies

Project Details


The GHOST project addresses the topic GV-06-2017, “Physical integration of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries at pack level aiming at increased energy density and efficiency” of the Green Vehicle (GV) work programme. The work proposed will, in a single coordinated project, address all the aspects of the call. The project activities will also include important contributions on the innovative Dual Battery System (DBS) architecture based on next generation of battery technologies (i.e. lithium sulphur) combined with high power battery and its impact on the reduction of complexity of the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture, improvement of energy density, energy efficiency, safety, scalability, modularity, and cost reduction.
