Rules say: one (energy)sensor is fitted to the MGU-K. One sensor is fitted to the ES.
Did FIA ever declare that one sensor, really means physically a single sensor?
Than it would stil be a mystery how the FIA would measure energy flow from a dual battery ES.
We, the public, don’t get to see the details of the sensors used, but the teams are told exactly what they may use.
8.2.2 All control sensors, actuators and FIA monitoring sensors will be specified and homologated by the FIA. Details of the homologation process may be found in the Appendix to the Technical Regulations.
Each and every component of the control system will be sealed and uniquely identified and their identities tracked through their life cycle.
These components and units may not be disassembled or modified in any way and seals and identifiers must remain intact and legible.
The ES is more than a battery, or batteries. The physical cells are connected together by a set of electrical circuitry sometimes referred to as a battery management system. It is this, the BMS, that is connected to the measurement sensor. In a dual battery the BMS will choose which battery is physically connected at any one time, and potentially, as I said above, which cells make up the battery.
