Modelling and Simulation

of Lithium-Ion Batteries

by Pampana Rama Sai

❏ Design and development of a
Lithium-Ion Battery Pack.
Statements ❏ Performing full cyclic testing to
effectively characterize the health of
lithium ion battery.
❏ Analysis of Charge-Discharge cycles
using Electronic Load Tester.
❏ A complete mathematical simulation
of charge transfer of Lithium-Ion
Thermal Runaway ❏ Thermal runaway of the lithium-ion battery
initiates an unstoppable chain reaction.
❏ Monitoring of the battery cell is crucial, as
thermal runaway is created here and can
spread to other battery cells, the entire
battery, and finally the entire electric car or
electric tool due to a domino effect.
❏ To minimize the risk of thermal runaway, the
mechanical and thermal stability of the
battery must be guaranteed which is ensured
by appropriate monitoring mechanisms of
the battery cells and the battery pack.

Battery Cells
Arrangement ❏ The P-count determines the capacity of the
pack in Amp-hours (Ah), and it also
determines the amount of current the pack
will be able to produce, measured in amps.
❏ If you take several cells and connect their
same-type electrodes in parallel, they all
will act as though they are one large cell.
❏ When you connect cells together in series,
it doesn’t change the amps or the capacity,
it only raises the voltage of the pack.
❏ Hooking them up in series means that you
connect the positive end of one cell (or
P-group) to the negative end of the other.
Battery ❏ The battery management system ensures
Management that the battery remains in its specified
working range.
System ❏ This requires extremely precise
measurement of the charge and discharge
currents, cell voltage, and temperature.
❏ As soon as the thermal runaway is
triggered in the shortest possible time and
can then no longer be stopped, fast and
precise measurements are decisive for the
lithium-ion battery structure in addition
to comprehensive thermodynamics
