Battery Charge Control by State of Health Estimation

Battery lifetime is one of importance consideration in smart system with energy storage system, because it is shorter than others. Extended of battery lifetime can give benefit to entire system, especially to reduce cost. The lifetime is commonly estimated by State of Health (SOH). Decreasing of SOH indicates degradation of battery. It can be influenced by the battery operation, so that operational management is needed. This study proposes control block for charging battery by using decreasing value of SOH as reference. The control block is implemented in battery system that connected to DC bus by bidirectional chopper. Numerical simulation study is performed by using PSIM software version 10.0. The result shows that the proposed block control is successfully used. Moreover, the relative error is less than 2% for delta SOH and less than 1% for battery power. Learn more
