SwRI Fast Charging (IMAGE) Southwest Research Institute Caption Southwest Research Institute engineers use hardware in the loop controllers, mobile data acquisition systems and other instrumentation to collect battery performance information from lithium ion batteries and electric vehicles. These and other data were used as part of an internal research program to develop a real-time model and controller that monitors and mitigates "lithium plating." With this process, the controller can safely manage fast charging while enabling EVs to get back out on the road in less time.
