Artificial intelligence could help to create long-lasting electric vehicle (EV) batteries that charge faster.
William Chueh at Stanford University and his colleagues have developed an that optimises EV battery recharging while also maximising the .
“If you want to charge a battery quickly there is an infinite number of ways you can do so,” says Chueh. Standard EV batteries tend to be recharged quickly at first, and then more slowly, for example.
How a battery is recharged is crucial because a sub-optimal charging pattern has the …
