The DCIR can be added according to the requirements of users.

According to BS EN 61960, the following test waveform can be used and the DCIR value can be calculated by the voltage difference.

Lithium-ion Battery DCIR Test

Compute mode 1:

Apply one current pulse on the two poles of the battery, then the terminal voltage of the battery will change suddenly. Here, in the DCIR formula: ΔI is the current pulse; U (t) is the terminal voltage at t (time); U0 is the original terminal voltage. In most cases, DCIR includes ohmic IR and partial polarization IR. Therein, the proportion of polarization IR will be affected by the current loading time t.

Compute mode 2:

Change the current on the two terminals of the battery, then the terminal voltage will also change. In the DCIR formula: ΔI is the current change; ΔU is the voltage change.

5) Cycle life test of battery module/pack

The battery charge discharge test is required for all the batteries. In this test, the evaluator will repeatedly test one same battery according to the defined charge-discharge conditions. Then count how many periods the battery has gone through until access to the end conditions of the test. The counted periods are the cycle periods of the battery. The more the cycle periods are, the longer the service life is. After that, test different kinds of batteries according to the same test conditions so as to evaluate the quality of the batteries or the most suitable charge-discharge and working conditions of a certain battery.

6) Capacity test of battery module/pack

In most cases, the measurement of battery module/pack capacity is affected by the discharge current and time. Though every battery has a specification provided by the manufacturer and its capacity test will be conducted with low charge-discharge rate, the power battery should be charged and discharged with high charge-discharge rate. If set the battery capacity according to the provided specification, there will be some deviation with the actual capacity. Therefore, the battery cell should be tested according to the final charge-discharge rate of the power battery so as to get a more accurate capacity.

7) Charge/discharge test of battery module/pack

Li-ion battery often adopts the charging mode of constant current converting to constant voltage. At the beginning, the battery voltage is low and the charge current is constant, viz. constant current charge. Then the battery voltage rises to 4.2V gradually and the charger switches to the constant voltage charge. The fluctuation of the charge voltage should be kept within 1% and the charge current reduces gradually. When the current decreases to a certain range, here comes the trickle charge, viz. maintenance charge. Under the state of maintenance charge, the charger will keep charging with a certain charge rate until the charge completes.

With different discharge rate, the battery voltage changes greatly. The larger the discharge rate is, the lower the battery voltage of the corresponding surplus capacity is. If the discharge rate is 0.2C, the rated capacity will be discharged when the battery cell voltage decreases to 2.75V. If the discharge rate is 1C, 98.4% of the rated capacity will be discharged.

8) Pulse charge/discharge test of battery module/pack

It is well known that the diffusion rate of the Li-ion battery between the two poles decides the charging speed of the Li-ion battery. If the diffusion rate is too slow, the concentration polarization will be caused, especially in the charging process of large current. On account of concentration polarization, the terminal voltage of the battery will rise to the charge end voltage rapidly.

On conquering these difficulties, we applied pulse charging technology into the Li-ion battery, viz. inserting idle time and discharge pulse into the charging process. The idle time and discharge pulse can effectively eliminate the concentration polarization and increase the power transmission rate. In this way, the use ratio of the active materials can be enhanced and the charging time can be shortened.

9) Charge retention and recovery capability test of battery module/pack

In the charge retention and recovery capability test, the capacity retention status can be measured after the Li-ion battery has been stored for some time. After the charge retention test, recharge the battery and measure the capacity recovery status according to a certain test procedure. See the following examples for the test procedure of charge retention and recovery test:

10) Charge-discharge efficiency test of battery module/pack

The running cost and service life of the battery module/pack are closely related to its power performance. So, it is very necessary to study the charge-discharge efficiency of the battery pack so as to build up an optimal charge-discharge performance model, shorten the charging time, increase the released energy and ensure the stored energy can meet the requirements of the vehicle during its whole service life.

The charging efficiency is decided by the charging system and the discharge depth of the battery before charging, while the discharge efficiency is related to the total resistance loss and discharge current.

11) Consistency test of battery module/pack

There are some problems in the application of power batteries in EV power systems, such as durability, reliability and safety etc. One of the main reasons for these problems is the inconsistency of battery cells.

The inconsistency of power batteries mainly displays on the discrepancy of the battery cell performance parameters and the working status. The former one includes the differences on battery capacity, internal resistance and self-discharge rate; the latter one is the difference on the charging state and the working voltage.

12) Temperature test of battery cell

The capacity of the Li-ion battery will be influenced by different temperatures. Under the same charge-discharge condition, the higher the temperature is, the larger the capacity is. On the contrary, the lower the temperature is, the lower the capacity is.
