Description

CREC: Reliability and Performance Evaluation of Batteries in hotdry climate CREC: Reliability and Performance Evaluation of Batteries in hot/dry climate II. Background and Introduction Batteries play a critical role in powering modern technology, from consumer electronics to large scale renewable energy storage. Hence it is important that the batteries are reliable and capable of handling high power and energy requirements. State-of-charge SoC and SoH determination is 3 an increasingly important issue in battery technology in terms of both extending the life of the battery and displaying the usable charge as well as remaining battery life to the user before recharging and replacing, respectively [1-3]. An accurate determination of SoC enables us to manage the battery to its optimal potential. Depending on the battery chemistry, states of extremely high or low SoC can lead to irreversible damage in the battery, especially at elevated temperatures [4-7]. We propose to develop a LOOK-UP Chart using HFR values for estimating SoC and SoH for Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, lead-acid and Li-ion batteries based on modeling/simulation and EIS methods under charge/discharge cycling with simulated hot and dry conditions.
