Machine learning methods for battery state-of-health assessment

Energy Storage Systems in the form of lithium-based batteries are increasingly popular and still relatively expensive. The economics suggest a circular lithium economy should be achievable, one of the principal steps being extended use. BMS systems track in-service battery health with accuracy reducing as cycle life increases. This presentation investigates methods for developing Machine Learning algorithms to accurately assess the state-of-health of a pack. Starting with some used cells with a range of measured SoH values, we’ll demonstrate the feasibility of Machine Learning to accurately determine the pack health with a range of dynamic charge-discharge profiles.
