Electrochemical batteries are used for storing energy and providing power in several industry domains, including automotive powertrains, electrified aircraft, and modern electric grid applications. Battery models of varying fidelity levels are used in simulations of such systems, for a range of different engineering questions, including sizing the battery, validating its power output, efficiency and thermal dynamics, as well as verifying control functions and electrical transient events. Different model fidelity is needed for these different use cases. Furthermore, the amount of data available for parameterizing the models typically varies for different stages of product development.
The following sections are a set of guides that takes the reader through the workflow of obtaining a battery model of suitable fidelity for a specific use case, parameterizing the model based on available data, as well as verifying that the model is correct and valid for its intended purpose.
The guides belong to a part of the Electrification Library that deals with batteries. This is a general library for modeling electrified systems in multiple industries. Please note that these guides include references to model components found in this library. For more information about modeling batteries and electrified systems, please refer to the built-in documentation in the library itself. The guides can also be found as part of that library documentation (Electrification.Batteries.Information).
Although the guides represent parts of a workflow, they can be read independently and out of order.
