|Abstract:||The field of energy storage has improved drastically within the last two decades. Batteries of various chemistries have been relied on to provide energy for numerous portable electronic devices. Lithium-ion cells, when compared to other chemistries have been known to provide outstanding energy-to-weight ratios and exhibit low self-discharge when not in use . The aforementioned benefits in conjunction with decreasing costs have made lithium-ion cells an exceptional choice for use in electrical vehicles (EVs). Battery Management Systems (BMS) in EVs are responsible for providing estimates for values that are indicative of the battery pack’s present operating condition. The current operating condition could be described by State of Charge, power fade, capacity fade and various other parameters . Importantly, it is essential for the estimation technique to adjust to fluctuating cell characteristics as the cell ages, in pursuance of having available accurate estimates for the life time of the pack. In order for the estimation technique to properly estimate the desired quantities, a mathematical model capable of capturing cell dynamics is desired. There are various proposed methods recommended for mathematically modeling a cell, namely equivalent Circuit modeling, electro-chemical modeling and impedance spectroscopy. Consequently, in order to ensure mathematical models are accurate and further to have the ability to compare the proposed models, it is essential to have available data gathered from a given cell at specific operating conditions. This Master’s thesis outlines the development of a lithium-ion cell tester that is capable of controlling, monitoring and recording parameters such as current, voltage and temperature. The Dual capability of obtaining data from standardized cell tests as well as high frequency cell tests is fascinating and intriguing. As this capability holds the possibility of reducing cost otherwise spent on man hours and equipment which are both paramount in any industrially automated process.|
