Nonlinear Adaptive Estimation of the State of Charge for Lithium-ion Batteries



This paper considers State of Charge (SoC) estimation of Lithium-ion battery. Different from various prior art, where estimation is performed based on local linearization of a nonlinear battery model, a nonlinear adaptive observer is proposed to estimate the SoC and the parameters of a simplified but nonlinear battery model. A major advantage of the proposed approach is the possibility to establish the exponential stability of the resultant error dynamics of state and parameter estimation. Simulation validates the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
