The equipment of a vehicle with EBS from Bosch is a precondition to perform Start/Stop functionality and intelligent energy management features like load reduction or alternator recuperation. These advanced features help relieving stress on the battery and promote longer battery life as well as fuel saving and reduced emission.
The EBS measures physical variables of the battery, such as voltage, current and temperature with high accuracy. An internal Battery State Detection (BSD) software provides information about the current battery states as well as the predicted future electrical behavior to a master Electronic Control Unit (ECU). An Electric Energy Management (EEM) can decide if actions are needed to protect the vehicle against power loss and a low battery.
