Rechargeable lithium-ion battery systems
The chemistry of lithium-ion batteries is well defined and has been the subject of many articles and books. This chapter is concerned with the development and management of modern lithium-ion battery systems together with a discussion on lithium-ion battery system integration. The design of lithium-ion battery modules for stationary storage systems together with a discussion on the thermal behavior of the batteries is given by using an example of a photovoltaic home storage system. In the battery management section, the various concepts of battery management including modular, single central, and single-cell batteries are discussed, together with discussions on the state of charge estimation and the state of health estimation for lithium-ion batteries. The configuration and communication infrastructure are discussed in the section on system integration.
