Combining several existing lumped-parameter models, this paper presents an electro-thermal model for cylindrical batteries. The model consists of two sub-models, an equivalent-circuit electrical model and a two-state thermal model which are coupled through heat generation and temperature dependence of the electrical parameters. The computationally efficient(More)
Lithium ion batteries should always be prevented from overheating and, hence, thermal monitoring is indispensable. Since only the surface temperature of the battery can be measured, a thermal model is needed to estimate the core temperature of the battery, which can be higher and more critical. In this paper, an online parameter identification scheme is(More)
This paper presents a computationally efficient thermal model of a cylindrical lithium ion battery for realtime applications. Such a model can be used for thermal management of the battery system in electrified vehicles. The thermal properties are modeled by volume averaged lumped values under the assumption of a homogeneous and isotropic volume. A(More)
In this paper we model and experimentally verify the evolution of liquid water and nitrogen fronts along the length of the anode channel in a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell operating with a dead-ended anode that is fed by dry hydrogen. The accumulation of inert nitrogen and liquid water in the anode causes a voltage drop, which is recoverable by purging(More)
Parameterization and Observability Analysis of Scalable Battery Clusters for Onboard Thermal Management — Thermal management is an important issue for lithium ion batteries, as overheating may result in disastrous consequences. Although the battery surface temperature is commonly measured, the core temperature of a cell may be much higher hence more(More)
In this paper, for the first time, an equivalent circuit electrical model is integrated with a two-state thermal model to form an electro-thermal model for cylindrical lithium ion batteries. The parameterization of such model for an A123 26650 LiFePO4 cylindrical battery is presented. The resistances and capacitances of the equivalent circuit model are(More)
This paper investigates the effects of dead-ended anode (DEA) operation on the electrode carbon corrosion of the Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. A reduced order isothermal model is developed focusing on the species concentration along the channel and associated membrane phase potential. This model explains, and can be used to quantify, the carbon(More)
The estimation of temperature inside battery cells requires accurate information about the cooling conditions even when the temperature of the battery surface is measured. This paper presents a novel approach of estimating temperature distribution inside cylindrical batteries under unknown convective cooling conditions. A computationally efficient thermal(More)
