ChBE Seminar: Venkat Subramanian, Mechanical Engineering Prof., University of Texas, Austin
Speaker: Venkat Subramanian, Professor, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, University of Texas, Austin
Professor Venkat R. Subramanian received his B.Tech. degree in chemical and electrochemical engineering from the Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CECRI), Karaikudi, India, in 1997 and his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC, USA, in 2001. Subramanian is an elected ECS Fellow, is a past elected chair of IEEE division of the Electrochemical Society. He is also a former elected technical editor of the Electrochemical Society, and a former elected chair of Area 1e: (Electrochemical Engineering) of AIChE.
Subramanian's group aims to be the world’s leading group in the area of model-based Battery Management System (BMS) and model-based design of current and next-generation energy storage devices. His group has made contributions to the fundamental science of capacity fade (KMC simulation of SEI) and has the fastest code reported in the literature for battery models. He has IP on the most robust solver for battery models. His group has demonstrated 2x improvement in the life of 18Ah cells using model based charging profiles. His group has the ability to model phenomenon at different time & length scales, and chemistries (LiM, LiS).
