Lithium-Ion Batteries. Fundamentals, Modelling, and State Estimation (2021)

Doctoral School of Engineering and Science at Aalborg University

Lithium-ion batteries have become the key energy storage technologies for various applications, such as electric vehicles, microgrids, (nano-)satellites, or for enhancing renewables’ grid integration. This has become possible due to their superior characteristics in terms of gravimetric and volumetric energy density, efficiency, lifetime etc. Nevertheless, Lithium-ion batteries are highly non-linear energy storage devices with their performance (electrical) and degradation (lifetime) behavior strongly influenced by the operating conditions (e.g., temperature, load current, number of cycles, idling time etc.). Therefore, in order to benefit from Lithium-ion batteries’ characteristics, precise knowledge about the performance and degradation behavior has to be known at all moments during the lifetime.

Thus, this three-day course provides an overview of the status of Lithium-ion batteries, fundamentals and a deep understanding of their performance and degradation behavior. Different methods for battery performance (electrical) and degradation (lifetime) modeling will be introduced together with suitable parametrization approaches (from data-sheet to laboratory experiments), respectively. These models will be subsequently used to introduce various Li-ion battery state-of-charge (SOC) and state-of health (SOH) estimation techniques.  

Exemplifications of some of the discussed topics will be made through exercises in Matlab/Simulink.
