Thesis project at Scania is an excellent way of making contacts for your future working life. Many of our current employees started their career with a thesis project.

Background:
Hybrid and electric propulsion vehicles are taking market shares all around the world. To be able to compete Scania is offering hybrid trucks as well as electric busses. It is critical for safety, performance and product cost to be able to accurately monitor the state of high-voltage battery packs. One important characteristic to monitor is remaining capacity (Ah) as it is known to decrease over the life of the battery due to aging mechanism and wear.

The candidate have a background in engineering and have experience with programming languages such as Matlab or Python. The candidate have experience from one or more of the fields: Control theory, Mathematical modeling, Data analytics, Statistics, Battery chemistry, Machine learning, Other.

Target:
The goal is to investigate the properties of capacity estimation using a preferred approach to be discussed later.

Assignment:
The candidate will work in cooperation with Scania engineers, at R&D office in Södertälje. The goal is to investigate the properties of capacity estimation using a preferred approach to be discussed later. The properties to be evaluated are accuracy, robustness and suitability for embedded controller implementation.
