## Sources of Error with the Coulomb Counting Method

It is really important to understand the sources of error with the coulomb counting method as this forms the backbone for most SOC estimation algorithms. SoC Estimation by Coulomb Counting is based on the measurement of the current and integration of that current over time. There are five main sources of error with the coulomb … Read more

## Remaining Useful Life

What is Remaining Useful Life (RUL)? Remaining Useful Life (RUL) is a key function declared by the battery management system. As per the title it gives you the remaining predicted lifetime of the battery based on its usage and degradation to the failure threshold [1]. It represents the period from the observation to the end of life … Read more

## SoC Estimation by Coulomb Counting

SoC Estimation by Coulomb Counting is based on the measurement of the current and integration of that current over time. The State of Charge (SoC) of a battery cell is required to maintain it’s safe operation and lifetime during charge, discharge and storage. However, SoC cannot be measured directly and is estimated from other measurements and known … Read more

## Mileage equals Wear

Authors: Dr Kotub Uddin & Nigel Taylor When we look at this picture, we see the over-simplicity of the ‘mileage equals wear’ mindset. Figure 1 shows reported SOH as a function of miles-driven for Nissan Leaf EVs. Similar distributions are reported by Myall and co-authors [1] who analysed 1382 reported SOH data points from 283 … Read more

## SoC Estimation Techniques

There are a number of SoC Estimation Techniques and this article will be just an initial introduction. The State of Charge (SoC) of a battery cell is required to maintain it’s safe operation and lifetime during charge, discharge and storage. However, SoC cannot be measured directly and is estimated from other measurements and known parameters. … Read more
