The study was conducted at International Institute of Information Bangalore. In the study a protocol based on CAN or Controller Area Network has been implemented for communication between the Battery charger and Battery management system or BMS. Modern days electric vehicles uses Lithium ion batteries for charging which has a Battery management system to monitor various parameters of a battery such as current, voltages and temperature. The implementation of CAN protocol enables the Battery management system to communicate with the battery charger. The BMS instructs the battery charger to perform necessary action when the values of the parameters goes out of range. This helps in preventing any damages to the battery and maintain a healthy life of the battery. The charger also becomes intelligent enough to take decisions without any human monitoring. This charger can directly be deployed on board an electric vehicle.
