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)
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)
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)
Temperature monitoring is a critical issue for lithium ion batteries. Since only the surface temperature of the battery can be measured, a thermal model is needed to estimate the core temperature, which can be higher and hence more critical. In this paper, an on-line parameter identification scheme is designed for a cylindrical lithium ion battery thermal(More)
The voltage of lithium ion batteries is usually monitored to prevent overcharge and overdischarge. For battery packs consisting of hundreds of cells, monitoring the voltage of every single cell adds significant cost and complexity to the battery management system (BMS). Reducing voltage sensing by only measuring the total voltage of multiple cells in series(More)
In electric vehicle applications, batteries are usually packed in modules to satisfy the energy and power demand. To facilitate the thermal management of a battery pack, a model-based observer could be designed to estimate the temperature distribution across the pack. Nevertheless, cost target in industry practice drives the number of temperature sensors in(More)
In an effort to evaluate the accuracy of various battery models we use neutron imaging which is a nondestructive in situ measurement technique that has been successfully used to track the migration of lithium between the anode and cathode electrode layers during battery operation. In this work we extend the previous results, acquired during steady state(More)
