Li-ion Battery Modelling Group

Li-ion batteries are ubiquitous in portable electronics, automotive applications, and stationary power storage. Accurate mathematical models of their behaviour and corresponding computational tools are necessary for battery cell development and also pack design with existing cells. Accurate models are also necessary for real time control for performance and lifetime optimization in use and charging. Simple equivalent circuit models are known to not describe behaviour at high current rates well enough and more detailed, electrochemical models are needed. Our group improves the accuracy of these models and designs accurate numerical methods to approximate their solution. Our recent work is focussed on improving the efficiency of these computations, using scientific computing and machine learning techniques, to allow their use in real time control.
