Description
METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR JOINT BATTERY STATE AND PARAMETER
ESTIMATION
Technical Field The present invention relates to methods and apparatus for estimation of battery pack system state and model parameters using digital filtering techniques. In particular, joint Kalman filtering and joint extended Kalman filtering.
Background Art In the context of rechargeable battery pack technologies, it is desired in some applications to be able to estimate quantities that are descriptive of the present battery pack condition, but that may not be directly measured. Some of these quantities may change rapidly, such as the pack stateofcharge (SOC), which can traverse its entire range within minutes. Others may change very slowly, such as cell capacity, which might change as little as 20% in a decade or more of regular use. The quantities that tend to change quickly comprise the "state" of the system, and the quantities that tend to change slowly comprise the time varying "parameters" of the system.
In the context of the battery systems, particularly those that need to operate for long periods of time, as aggressively as possible without harming the battery life, for example, in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), laptop computer batteries, portable tool battery packs, and the like, it is desired that information regarding quickly varying parameters (e.g., SOC) be used to estimate how much battery energy is presently available to do work, and so forth. Further, it may be desirable to ascertain information regarding slowly varying parameters (e.g., total capacity) in order to keep the prior calculations precise over the lifetime of the pack, extending its useful service time, and help in determining the stateofhealth (SOH) of the pack.
There are a number of existing methods for estimating the state of a cell, which are generally concerned with estimating three quantities: SOC (a quickly varying quantity), powerfade, and capacityfade (both slowly time varying).
Power fade may be calculated if the present and initial pack electrical resistances are known, and capacity fade may be calculated if present and initial pack total capacities are known, for example, although other methods may also be used.
Power and capacityfade are often lumped under the desc.ription "stateofhealth" (SOH) Some other information may be derived using the values of these variables, such as the maximum power available from the pack at any given time.
Additional state members or parameters may also be needed for specific applications, and individual algorithms would typically be required to find each one.
SOC is a value, typically reported in percent that indicates the fraction of the cell capacity presently available to do work. A number of different approaches to estimating SOC have been employed: a discharge test, amperehour counting (Coulomb counting), measuring the electrolyte, opencircuit voltage measurement, linear and nonlinear circuit modeling, impedance spectroscopy, measurement of internal resistance, coup de fouet, and some forms of Kalman filtering. The discharge test must completely discharge the cell in order to determine SOC. This test interrupts system function while the test is being performed and can be overly time consuming rendering it not useful for many applications.
Amperehour counting (Coulomb counting) is an "open loop"
methodology whose accuracy degrades over time by accumulated measurement error. Measuring the electrolyte is only feasible for vented leadacid batteries, and therefore has limited applicability. Opencircuit voltage measurement may be performed only after extended periods of cell inactivity, and for cells with negligible hysteresis effect and does not work in a dynamic setting. Linear and nonlinear circuit modeling methods do not yield SOC directly; SOC must be inferred from the calculated values. Impedance spectroscopy requires making measurements not always available in a general application.
Measurement of internal resistance is very sensitive to measurement error, and requires measurements not available in general applications. Coup de fouet works for leadacid batteries only. Forms of Kalman filtering that do not use SOC
as a filter state do not directly yield error bounds on the estimate. In another method, described in U.S. Patent No. 6,534,954, a filter, preferably a Kalman filter is used to estimate SOC by employing a known mathematical model of cell dynamics and measurements of cell voltage, current, and temperature. This method directly estimates state values.
However, it does not address parameter values.
Not only is knowledge of SOC desired, but also knowledge of SOH. In this context, power fade refers to the phenomenon of increasing cell electrical resistance as the cell ages.
This increasing resistance causes the power that can be sourced/sunk by the cell to drop. Capacity fade refers to the phenomenon of decreasing cell total capacity as the cell ages. Both the cell's resistance and capacity are timevarying parameters. The prior art uses the following different approaches to estimate SOH: the discharge test, chemistrydependent methods, Ohmic tests, and partial discharge. The discharge test completely discharges a fully charged cell in order to determine its total capacity. This test interrupts system function and wastes cell energy.
Chemistrydependent methods include measuring the level of plate corrosion, electrolyte density, and "coup de fouet" for leadacid batteries. Ohmic tests include resistance, conductance and impedance tests, perhaps combined with fuzzylogic algorithms and/or neural networks. These methods require invasive measurements. Partial discharge and other methods compare cellundertest to a good cell or model of a good cell.
There is a need for a method to concurrently estimate the state and parameters of a cell. Furthermore, there is a need for tests that do not interrupt system function and do not waste energy, methods that are generally applicable (e.g., to different types of cell electrochemistries and to different applications), methods that do not require invasive measurements, and more rigorous approaches. There is a need for methods and apparatus for automatically estimating timevarying parameters, such as the cell's resistance and capacity. There is a need for a method that will work with different configurations of parallel and/or series cells in a battery pack.

FIG. 1 shows the components of the parameter estimator system 10 according an embodiment of the present invention.
Electrochemical cell pack 20 comprising a plurality of cells 22, e.g., battery is connected to a load circuit 30. For example, load circuit 30 could be a motor in an Electric Vehicle (EV) or a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). An apparatus for measuring various cell characteristics and properties is provided as 40. The measurement apparatus 40 may include but not be limited to a device for measurement of cell terminal voltage such as a voltage sensor 42, e.g. a voltmeter and the like, while measurements of cell current are made with a current sensing device 44, e.g., an ammeter and the like. Optionally, measurements of cell temperature are made with a temperature sensor 46, e.g., a thermometer and the like. Additional cell properties, such as internal pressure or impedance, may be measured using (for example) pressure sensors and/or impedance sensors 48 and may be employed for selected types of cells 22 of cell pack 20.
Various sensors may be employed as needed to evaluate the characteristics and properties of the cell(s) 22. Voltage, current, and optionally temperature and cellproperty measurements are processed with an arithmetic circuit 50, e.g., processor or computer, which estimates the parameters of the cell(s) 22. The system may also include a storage medium 52 comprising any computer usable storage medium known to one of ordinary skill in the art. The storage medium is in operable communication with arithmetic circuit 50 employing various means, including, but not limited to a propagated signal 54. It should be appreciated that no instrument is required to take measurements from the internal chemical components of the cell 22 although such instrumentation may be used with this invention. Also note that all measurements may be noninvasive; that is, no signal must be injected into the system that might interfere with the proper operation of load circuit 30.
In order to perform the prescribed functions and desired processing, as well as the computations therefore (e.g., the modeling, estimation of parameters prescribed herein, and the like), arithmetic circuit 50 may include, but not be limited to, a processor(s), gate array(s), custom logic, computer(s), memory, storage, register(s), timing, interrupt(s), communication interfaces, and input/output signal interfaces, as well as combinations comprising at least one of the foregoing. Arithmetic circuit 50 may also include inputs and input signal filtering and the like, to enable accurate sampling and conversion or acquisitions of signals from communications interfaces and inputs. Additional features of arithmetic circuit 50 and certain processes therein are thoroughly discussed at a later point herein.
One or more embodiments of the invention may be implemented as new or updated firmware and software executed in arithmetic circuit 50 and/or other processing controllers.
Software functions include, but are not limited to firmware and may be implemented in hardware, software, or a combination thereof. Thus a distinct advantage of the present invention is that it may be implemented for use with existing and/or new processing systems for electrochemical cell charging and control.
In an exemplary embodiment, Arithmetic circuit 50 uses a mathematical model of the cell 22 that includes indicia of a dynamic system state. In one embodiment of the present invention, a discretetime model is used. An exemplary model in a (possibly nonlinear) discretetime statespace form has the form:
xk+I = f(xk,uk,Ok) + Wk Yk =g(xk,uk,O)+Vk, (1) where xk is the system state, Bk is the set of time varying model parameters, Uk is the exogenous input, his the system output, and wk and vk are "noise" inputsall quantities may be scalars or vectors. f(=,.,) and g(=,=,=) are functions defined by the cell model being used. Nontimevarying numeric values required by the model may be embedded within f(.;;) and and are not included in 0,.
The system state includes, at least, a minimum amount of information, together with the present input and a mathematical model of the cell 22, needed to predict the present output. For a cell 22, the state might include: SOC, polarization voltage levels with respect to different time constants, and hysteresis levels, for example. The system exogenous input Uk includes at minimum the present cell current ik , and may, optionally, include cell temperature (unless temperature change is itself modeled in the state).
The system parameters Bk are the values that change only slowly with time, in such a way that they may not be directly determined with knowledge of the system measured input and output. These might include, but not be limited to: cell capacity(ies), resistance(s), polarization voltage time constant(s), polarization voltage blending factor(s), hysteresis blending factor(s), hysteresis rate constant(s), efficiency factor(s), and so forth. The model output y, corresponds to physically measurable cell quantities or those directly computable from measured quantitiesat minimum, the cell voltage under load.
A mathematical model of parameter dynamics is also utilized. An exemplary model has the form:
ek+1 = Bk +Y'k. (2) The equation states that the parameters are essentially constant, but that they may change slowly over time, in this instance, modeled by a fictitious "noise" process denoted, rk.
Turning now to Figure 2 as well, within a joint filter shown generally as 100, the dynamics of the state and the dynamics of the parameters are combined to make an augmented system. An exemplary model has the form:
xk+I ' _ f (xk, uk, k) +[Wk]
ek+1 Ok rk Yk =g(xk,uk,ek)+Vk=
Note that to simplify notation, we will sometimes refer to the vector comprising the present state and present parameters as xk.
With the augmented model of the system state dynamics and parameter dynamics defined, in an exemplary embodiment, a procedure of joint filtering is applied. Once again, alternatively, a joint Kalman filter 100 may be employed, or a joint extended Kalman filter 100. Table 1 is an exemplary implementation of the methodology and system utilizing joint extended Kalman filtering. The procedure is initialized by setting the augmented state estimate xo to the best guess of the true augmented state by setting the top portion to E[xo]
and the bottom portion to E[6o] . The estimationerror covariance matrix Ez is also initialized. Table 1: Joint extended Kalman filter for state and weight update.

In this example, several steps are performed in each measurement interval. First, the augmented state estimate 1'1 is propagated forward in time, through the function F. The augmented state vector uncertainty is also updated. Various possibilities exist for updating the uncertainty, estimatethe table gives only one example. A measurement of the cell output is made, and compared to the predicted output based on the augmented state estimate, j'; the difference is used to update the values of j . It may readily be appreciated that the steps outlined in the table may be performed in a variety of orders. While the table lists an exemplary ordering for the purposes of illustration, those skilled in the art will be able to identify many equivalent ordered sets of equations.
continuing with FIG. 2, an exemplary implementation of an exemplary embodiment of the invention is depicted. A
single filter 100 jointly updates the state and parameter estimates. The filter has a time update or prediction 101 aspect and a measurement update or correction 102 aspect.
Time update/prediction block 101 receives as input the previous exogenous input uk_, (which might include cell current and/or temperature, for example) along with the previously estimated augmented state value x~i_I and augmented state uncertainty estimate Ez,k1. The time update/prediction block 101 provides predicted augmented state 5 and predicted augmented state uncertainty Ezk output to augmented state measurement update/correction block 102. State measurement update/correction block 102 also receives the predicted augmented state ;rk and predicted augmented state uncertainty Exk , as well as the exogenous input Uk , and the system output yk, while providing current system augmented state estimate 5 and augmented state uncertainty estimate Ez,k . It will also be appreciated that a minus notation denotes that the vector is the result of the prediction components 101 of the filter 100, while the plus notation denotes that the vector is the result of the correction component 102 of the filter 100.
Several of the exemplary embodiments illustrating this invention require a mathematical model of cell state and output dynamics for the particular application. In the examples above, this is accomplished by defining specific functions for general f(=,=,=) and g(=,=,=) . An exemplary embodiment uses a cell model that includes effects due to one or more of the opencircuitvoltage (OCV) for the cell 22, internal resistance, voltage polarization time constants, and a hysteresis level. Similarly, parameter values including, but not limited to: an efficiency factor(s) such as Coulombic efficiency, denoted 77j,k ; cell capacity(ies), denoted Ck; polarization voltage time constant(s), denoted a,,k,...aõ f k ; polarization voltage blending factor (s) , denoted as 91,k1...9õf _1,k ; the cell resistance (s) , denoted as Rk ; a hysteresis blending factor(s) denoted as Mk; the hysteresis rate constant(s), denoted as yk; and the like as well as combinations including at least one of the foregoing. For the purpose of example, parameter values are fitted to this model structure to model the dynamics of highpower LithiumIon Polymer Battery (LiPB) cells, although the structure and methods presented here are general and apply to other electrochemistries.
In an exemplary embodiment, SOC is captured by one state of the model. This equation to address SOC is:
Zk+1 _ Zk  Oh,kAt /Ck) k (3) where At represents the intersample period (in seconds), Ck represents the cell capacity (in ampereseconds), Zk is the cell SOC 22 at time index k, 1k, is the cell current 22, and Th,k is the Coulombic efficiency of a cell 22 at current level Zk In another exemplary embodiment, the polarization voltage levels are captured by several filter states. If we let there be of polarization voltage time constants, then fk+l=Affk+Bflk= (4) The matrix Af E nf Xnf may be a diagonal matrix with realvalued polarization voltage time constants al,k "' an f,k . If so, the system is stable if all entries have magnitude less than one. The vector Bf E. f may simply be set to of "1"'s. The entries of Bf are not critical as long as they are nonzero.
The value of entries in the Af matrix are chosen as part of the system identification procedure to best fit the model parameters to measured cell data. The Af, and Bf matrices may vary with time and other factors pertinent to the present battery pack operating condition.
In yet another exemplary embodiment, the hysteresis level is captured by a single state h ex '7i,ktkykAt h k 1 ex 'I1,k'kykAt s i k+1  Ck k Ck ~~ k~~ ( 5 ) where yk is the hysteresis rate constant, again found by system identification.
In a further exemplary embodiment, the overall model state is T xk`[fk hk Zk]T' (6) where other orderings of states are possible. In this instance, the state equation for the model is formed by combining all of the individual equations identified above.
The output equation that combines the state values to predict cell voltage is vk _ g(xk, uk, 8k) (7) = OCV(zk) + Gkfk  Rklk + Mkhk, where Gk E 9R lxnf is a vector of polarization voltage blending factors gl,k...g f,k that blend the polarization voltage states together in the output, Rk is the cell resistance(s) (different values may be used for discharge/charge), and Mk is the hysteresis blending factor. Note, Gk may be constrained such that the dcgain from ikto Gkfk is zero.
In this example, the parameters are T
elc=77ik, Ck, alk==anfka g1k...gnf1,k, Ika Rk, Mki (8) The augmented state vector %k is formed by joining the state vector (or combined state vector e.g. Equation (6)) and the parameter vector e.g., Equation (7) into one vector. For example, _ [xi, 'k, Zk, Ti,ka Ck, al k .. =anf k' g1,k ...gnf1,ka Yka Rk, Mk, where other orderings of states and parameters within the augmented state vector are possible. The quantities in %k comprise all the details required to compute the equations for ,f(=,=,=) ( e . g . , Equations (3)(5)) and g(=,=.,=) (e . g . , Equation 7).
In any embodiment, the joint filter 100 will adapt a state estimate and a parameter estimate so that a model inputoutput relationship matches the measured inputoutput data as closely as possible. This does not guarantee that the model augmented state converges to physical augmented state values. In an exemplary embodiment, the cell model used for joint filtering may be further supplemented by appending the cell model with a secondary cell model that includes as outputs those augmented states that must converge to their correct values. An exemplary embodiment takes extra steps to ensure that one model augmented state converges to SOC:
CV(Zk) Rkik + hk + Gkfk g(xk, uk, B_ o (9) Zk The supplemented model output is compared to a measured output in the joint filter 100. In an exemplary embodiment, a measured value for SOC may be approximated using zk derived as Yk OCV(Zk)  Rk dk OCV(Zk) Yk + Rklk (10) Zk = OCV' (Vk + Rklk ).
By measuring the voltage of a cell under load, the cell current, and having knowledge of Rk, (perhaps through k from the joint filter 100), and knowing the inverse OCV function for the cell chemistry, this example computes a noisy estimate of SOC, 2k.
In this example, a joint filter 100 is run on this modified model, with the "measured" information in the measurement update being Vk [Zk Experimentation has shown that while the "noise" of Zk (shortterm bias due to hysteresis effects and polarization voltages being ignored) prohibits it from being used as the primary estimator of SOC, its expected longterm behavior,in a dynamic environment is accurate, and maintains the accuracy of the SOC state in the joint filter 100.
Industrial Applicability Thus, a method for simultaneous estimation of cell state and parameters has been described in conjunction with a number of specific embodiments. One or more embodiments use a Kalman filter 100. Some embodiments use an extended Kalman filter 100. Further, some embodiments include a mechanism to force convergence of stateofcharge. The present invention is applicable to a broad range of applications, and cell electrochemistries.

The method can also be embodied in the form of computer program code containing instructions embodied in tangible media 52, such as floppy diskettes, CDROMs, hard drives, or ' any other computerreadable storage medium, wherein, when the computer program code is loaded into and executed by a computer, the computer becomes an apparatus capable of executing the method. The present method can also be embodied in the form of computer program code, for example, whether stored in ~a storage medium, loaded into and/or executed by a computer, or as data signal 54 transmitted whether a modulated carrier wave or not, over some transmission medium, such as over electrical wiring or cabling, through fiber optics, or via electromagnetic radiation, wherein, when the computer program code is loaded into and executed by a computer, the computer becomes an apparatus capable of executing the method. When implemented on a generalpurpose microprocessor, the computer program code segments configure the microprocessor to create specific logic circuits.
