Abstract

A battery-powered portable electronic system shuts down once the battery is discharged; therefore, it is important to take the battery behavior into account. A system designer needs an adequate high-level battery model to make battery-aware decisions targeting the maximization of the system's online lifetime. We propose such a model that allows a designer to analytically predict the battery time-to-failure for a given load. Our model also allows for a tradeoff between the accuracy and the amount of computation performed. The quality of the proposed model is evaluated using typical pocket computer applications and a detailed low-level simulation of a lithium-ion electrochemical cell. In addition, we verify the proposed model against actual measurements taken on a real lithium-ion battery.
