Utveckling av en algoritm för beräkning av blybatteri laddningstillstånd och hälsotillstånd (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In this paper, a state of charge (SOC) and a state of health (SOH) estimation method for lead-acid batteries are presented. In the algorithm the measurements of battery’s terminal voltage, current and temperature are used in the process of SOC calculation. The thesis was written in cooperation with Micropower AB. The algorithm was designed to fulfill the specific requirements of the electric vehicles application: an error below 5% of SOC, computational simplicity and the possibility of being implemented in a basic programming languages. The current used method at Micropower, Coulomb counting, is compared with a method presented by Chiasson and Vairamohan 2005 based on modified Thevein circuit during charging and discharging of the battery. The Thevenin based method gave better result compared to Coulomb counting but seems not to fulfill Micropowers requirements. A correction method based on periods of no charging or discharging, possible to be used together with Coulomb counting as well as with the Thevenin method was developed. The evaluation method indicates that when using also the correction method the Micropowers requirements are fulfilled.

Abstract [sv]

I detta papper, är ett laddningstillstånd (SOC) och hälsotillstånd (SOH) skattningsmetod för blybatterier presenteras. I algoritmen mätningarna av batteriets polspänning, ström och temperatur används i processen för SOC beräkning. Avhandlingen är skriven i samarbete med Micropower AB. Algoritmen har utformats för att uppfylla de särskilda kraven för elektriska fordon: ett fel under 5% av SOC, computational enkelhet och möjligheten att genomföras i ett grundläggande programmeringsspråk. Den nuvarande metoden vid Micropower, Coulomb räkning, jämförs med en metod som presenteras av Chiasson och Vairamohan 2005 baserad på modifierad Thevein kretsen under laddning och urladdning av batteriet.
