With the increasing utilization of high power density batteries coupled with thetechnological advances in efficiency, smart power management is becoming anincreasingly desirable asset. Most of the uses for this technology do not have a source of constant power instead the power supply and demand are usually in constant flux,requiring advanced power flow control. This control is desirable not only to systemdevelopers but also to consumers of electronic and electrical goods. The hybrid electricvehicle is one application for a power management system, where energy can bevariably generated, stored or used depending on the state of the car. No pre-fabricatedconsumer microprocessor currently available can handle all the required tasks. Thisreport intends to show that by using commercially available microprocessors as buildingblocks, an entire power management system can be built.The issue of DC power management and storage will be introduced with a review of background literature. A design for a bicycle light power management system usingcommercially available semiconductor devices will be described with models andpractical measurements. A reasoned suggestion of further work is given as well as areview of budgeting and project timescale for this project.
