Applidyne Engineer recipient of The Electric Energy Society of Australia Prize

Congratulations to Applidyne’s Mechatronics Engineer and 2019 Internship winner Michael Duke who recently received an award at the UniSA 2020 Engineering Prizes and Awards Ceremony.

Michael was presented with “The Electric Energy Society of Australia Prize – Final year project”. This award is presented annually to an Electrical engineering student, with the best overall performance in their final year honour project.

Michaels’ final year project was to develop an enhanced mathematical model of a 500VDC Li-Ion battery pack. This was completed with an associated state-of-charge estimator using an Extended Kalman Filter. This project forms the foundation for future development of in-house Battery Management Systems for the UniSA Formula SAE-A team.

As the winner of the 2019 Applidyne Engineering Internship Michael completed work experience with Applidyne over the 2019/2020 summer holidays. After a successful internship, Applidyne offered Michael full-time work following the completion of his final year.
