© 2018 IEEE. State-of-charge (SoC) is one critical parameter for battery management system. SoC cannot be directly measured but it can be estimated according to some information of battery management system such as voltage and current. Two commonly used methods to estimate the SoC are 1) by using current times a constant internal resistance, and 2) by referring to a SoC-resistance lookup table to interface with an open-circuit-voltage (OCV)-SoC lookup table. However, these widely used testing methods of internal resistance have not considered the influence of SoC, temperature and current rate. which are in fact related to internal resistance. Therefore, ignoring the temperature and current rate factors will obtain inaccurate internal resistance measurement and battery SoC estimation. This paper hence proposes a dynamic resistance model with improved accuracy through combining SoC-OCV at different ambient temperatures with different discharging rates defined at the standard ambient temperature (25 degree) condition. The proposed method will not only improve the accuracy but also reduce the testing time.
