Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to a novel state detecting device for detecting states such as charge condition, residual capacity in a power storage means such as a lithium secondary battery, a nickel hydride battery, a lead seal battery, an electric double layer capacitor, and to a power source unit, a distribution type power storage device, and an electric vehicle which use the state detecting device.
  • [0002]
    In a power source unit, a distribution type power storage device and an electric vehicle employing power storage means, such as a battery, a state detecting device is employed for detecting state of the power storage means in order to safely and effectively use the power storage means. The state of the power storage means represents state of charge (hereinafter abbreviated as “SOC” indicative how much charged or how much dischargeable charge amount resides, residual capacity, or state of health (hereinafter abbreviated as “SOH”) indicative of how much exhausted or weakened or degree of deterioration.
  • [0003]
    The SOC in the power source unit of a portable equipment, an electric vehicle and so forth can be detected by integrating a discharge current from a fully charged state and calculating a ratio of a charge amount residing in the power storage means (hereinafter referred to as “residual capacity”) versus a maximum chargeable charge amount (hereinafter referred to as “full capacity). However, many power storage means varies the full capacities depending upon SOH, temperature and so forth, it is difficult to accurately detect SOC with respect to secular change and variation of environment.
  • [0004]
    In order to solve such problem, as conventional residual capacity predicting method in consideration of deterioration of battery, there has been known one disclosed in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. Heisei 10-289734. FIG. 10 is an illustration showing a residual capacity predicting method of the above-identified publication. In this method, an initial battery characteristics is corrected by a temperature correction coefficient derived on the basis of a temperature of the battery and a deterioration correction coefficient derived based on deterioration of the battery, and a residual capacity of the battery is derived on the basis of the corrected battery characteristics, a discharge current during discharging and a terminal voltage.
  • [0005]
    In Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. Heisei 11-218567, there is shown a method for deriving a battery characteristics upon occurrence of deterioration by correcting an initial battery characteristics in relation to a temperature correction coefficient, an internal resistor deterioration correction coefficient, a capacitor deterioration correction coefficient.
  • [0006]
    In Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2000-166105, there has been disclosed a control unit detecting a charge condition on the basis of charge and discharge current, detecting a power storage condition on the basis of a voltage and controlling a charge condition on the basis of such detections.
  • [0007]
    In Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2000-166109, there has been disclosed a charge condition detecting device deriving an electromotive force based on a charge and discharge current and voltage and having a calculating means for deriving a charge characteristics on the basis of the electromotive force and the charge characteristics.
  • [0008]
    In Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2001-85071, there is disclosed a temperature detecting device predicting respective temperatures of a set battery modules on the basis of voltages between terminals and currents flowing therethrough.
  • [0009]
    In the residual capacity predicting method disclosed in the foregoing Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. Heisei 10-289734, in consideration of influence for temperature or deterioration, these influences are taken in as temperature correction coefficient or deterioration correction coefficient for correcting parameters necessary for calculation of the residual capacity with these correction coefficients derived through complicate derivation processes. Therefore, it is concerned whether the value per se of the correction coefficient is correct or whether all battery characteristics are corrected.
  • [0010]
    In addition, the power storage means of some kind also has characteristics, such as charge efficiency, memory effect and so forth, and is required to make correction in consideration of these characteristics in precision of residual capacity with high precision. On the other hand, the initial characteristics of the power storage mean generally contain individual difference. Correction for individual difference is also necessary in prediction of residual capacity with high precision.
  • [0011]
    Namely, in order to perform state detection, such as prediction of residual capacity with high precision, it becomes necessary effect accurate modeling of the characteristics to take in a plurality of parameters. Furthermore, it is required to perform correction associated with secular change or environmental variation of these parameters.
  • [0012]
    Therefore, significant time and attention have to be paid for obtaining the initial characteristics and a plurality of parameters of the power storage means. However, no matter how complicate it is, the result of arithmetic operation is nothing but prediction on the basis of the theory or model of the battery characteristics. Therefore, it is stilled concerned whether the result of prediction is correct with respect to a true value.
  • [0013]
    Therefore, it has been found that, in order to realize state detection of the power storage means at high precision and simply in calculation with characteristic data to be used in arithmetic operation, correction by comparing the result of state detection with the true value or logic and feeding back to subsequent arithmetic operation with learning the difference, is required, and break through thereof is necessary. Since it is not possible to directly measure the state of the battery, such as SOC or SCH, an important problem is how to derive the true value or logic.
  • [0014]
    On the other hand, in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. Heisei 11-218567, Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2000-166105, Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 20000-166109 and Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2001-85071, it is failed to disclose to perform correction feeding back a correction information obtained through arithmetic operation to subsequent arithmetic operation, and to correct storage information necessary for the arithmetic operation, and to perform state detection of the power storage means on the basis of a plurality of particular arithmetic operation and a plurality of varying information.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0015]
    An object of the present invention is to provide a state detection system to perform correction for feeding back correction information obtained through the predetermined arithmetic operation to subsequent arithmetic operation and storage information to make a characteristic data to be used in arithmetic operation at least being accurate to enable detection of state, such as state of charge, state of health or the like, and a power source unit, a power storage device and an electric vehicle.
  • [0016]
    The present invention is directed to a state detecting system comprising a storage means for storing a characteristic data with respect to a power storage means arithmetically obtained on the basis of the measured information obtained by measuring a measuring object with respect to the power storage means by measuring means, calculation information relating to the arithmetic operation of the data, and set information preliminarily set relating to the characteristic data and the calculation information, an arithmetic means for calculating state information indicative of state of the power storage means on the basis of the measured information and set information and calculating correction information for performing correction by comparing a calculation result calculated and the set information, a first correcting means for correcting input of the arithmetic means on the basis of correction information obtained by the arithmetic means, or a second correcting means for correcting information stored or set in storage means based on correction information obtained by the arithmetic means, and a communication means for communicating a calculation result obtained from the arithmetic means to other device.
  • [0017]
    More particularly, the state detecting system according to the present invention comprises a measuring means for measuring one or more of voltage, current, temperature, resistance and electrolyte concentration of a power storage means, a storage means for storing at least one of characteristic data of the power storage means, calculation coefficient and calculation procedure and preliminarily set value to be considered as true value or set information to be a logic considered as true phenomenon, an arithmetic means for calculating state of the power storage means on the basis of the measured value of the measuring means and the set information of the storage means and calculating a correction amount by comparing the calculation result and the set information, and communication means for communicating the calculation result of the arithmetic means to other device, and a correcting means for correcting the value of the storage means or input of the arithmetic means. By this, it can perform correction by comparing the calculation result and set information and feeding back the difference to subsequent calculation with learning. Therefore, it can be realized the state detection system which can detect state of power storage means achieving high accuracy with requiring lesser characteristic data to be used and simply in calculation.
  • [0018]
    The correction means according to the present invention may determine a correction amount based on discrepancy of the calculation result of the calculation means and set information. For example, it is natural condition that charge state increases during charging. If discrepancy in that the charge state decreases during charging, this is corrected. In addition, it is natural when charge and discharge is performed within the allowable charge an discharge current value capable of charging and discharging the power storage within allowable use voltage range, overcharging or over discharging is not detected. If overcharging or over discharging is detected, allowable charge and discharge current is corrected. As set forth, according to the present invention, normal characteristics or natural phenomenon is taken as set information and compares with the calculation result to correct the value of the storage means or input of the arithmetic means is corrected with learning.
  • [0019]
    On the other hand, in the present invention, the value of the measuring means, calculation result or calculation procedure of the arithmetic means, when the current value is smaller than or equal to the predetermined value may be determined as the correction value. For example, under a condition where influence of self-discharge is small and if current value is 0A, charge state varies little. Namely, when current value is 0A, variation amount of charge state being 0 is taken as set value as true value. If current value is 0A, charge state is varied; correction is performed to feedback the variation amount to the subsequent calculation with learning.

It will be obvious, however, to those skilled in the art that the present invention may be practiced without these specific details. In other instance, well-known structures are not shown in detail in order to avoid unnecessary obscurity of the present invention.
  • [0040]
    (First Embodiment)
  • [0041]
    [0041]FIG. 1 is a constructional illustration of a power source unit according to the present invention. In FIG. 1, the reference numeral 101 denotes power storage means, 102 denotes measuring means, 103 denotes storage means, 104 denotes arithmetic means, 105 denotes communication means, 106 denotes first correction means and 107 denotes second correction means. The power storage means 101 is formed with a device having a power storage function, such as a lithium secondary battery, a nickel hydride battery, a lead seal battery, an electric double layer capacitor and so forth.
  • [0042]
    The measuring means 102 is formed with a sensor or an electric circuit measuring voltage, current, temperature, resistance, battery electrolyte concentration and so forth, to obtain necessary measured information.
  • [0043]
    The storage means 103 is constructed with a memory device, such as an EEPROM, flash memory, a magnetic disk and so forth to store calculation information including at least one of characteristic data, calculation coefficient and calculation procedure, and set value to be considered as a preliminarily set true value relating to the calculation information or set information consisted of logic considered as true phenomenon.
  • [0044]
    The arithmetic means 104 is formed with a microprocessor, a computer or the like, and derives a state information of the power storage means 101 on the basis of a measuring value of the measurement means 102 and a value of the storage means 103. On the other hand, the result of calculation and the set information are compared to calculate the correction information to be these correction amounts. As state of the power storage means 101, there are various abnormality, such as SOC, SOH, allowable current, continuous charge and discharge period, allowable temperature, overcharging, over discharging and so forth.
  • [0045]
    The communication means 105 is constructed with a device or circuit for communicating a serial number, such as CAN, Bluetooth and so forth or a device or circuit communicating an ON-OFF signal, such as photo-coupler, relay and so forth. Then, a result of calculation calculated by the arithmetic means 104 is transmitted to other controller, display element or the like (not shown).
  • [0046]
    The first correction means 106 is constructed with a cache memory, a buffer memory, such as SRAM or the like, a register. Correction is performed by varying a value of the measuring means 102, a value of the storage means 103, a result of calculation of the arithmetic means 104 on the basis of a correction value derived by the arithmetic means 104.
  • [0047]
    The second correction means 107 is constructed with a writing circuit of EEPROM, flash memory and so forth as the storage means 103 or a writing circuit of the magnetic disk or the like and re-writes the value in the storage means 103 based on the correction value calculated by the arithmetic means 104.
  • [0048]
    While the first correction means 106 and the second correction means 107 are employed in the shown embodiment, it is possible to use one of these correction means or to employ other construction. On the other hand, by employing a microcomputer, in which an A/D converter, a flash memory, a microprocessor, a communication circuit are integrated on the same device, the measuring means 102, the storage means 103, the arithmetic means 104, the communication means, the first correction means 106 and the second correction means 107 can be integrated on the same device. On the other hand, these can be used in common with other control unit.
  • [0049]
    With the shown embodiment, the result of calculation per se is compared with the set value or the set information set as logic to perform correction with feeding back to subsequent arithmetic operation with learning the difference between the result of calculation and the set value or the set information. Therefore, it becomes possible to realize the state detection method and state detection system of the power storage means which is high accuracy with lesser characteristic data to be used in arithmetic operation and simple in arithmetic operation, and a power source unit employing the same.
  • [0050]
    (Second Embodiment)
  • [0051]
    [0051]FIG. 2 is a block diagram showing a state detection method of the power storage means according to the present invention. In FIG. 2, in a step of measuring and reading, voltage, current, temperature, resistance, electrolyte concentration and so forth of the power storage means 101 is measured to read the measuring value of the first correction means 106 or the arithmetic means 104. or a value of the storage means 103. In calculation, state of the power storage means 101 is calculated on the basis of the read value. In discrepancy judgment, the result of calculation and the set value or logic is compared to make judgment of discrepancy. If no discrepancy is found, process does end to repeat the same sequence. If discrepancy is found, related parameters are corrected at a step of correction and writing to terminate writing in the memory. By repeating this sequence, correction to feed back the discrepancy to subsequent arithmetic operation with learning can be performed.
  • [0052]
    Here, discrepancy between the result of calculation and the set value or logic means that, for example, it is natural logic to increase charge state during charging, discrepancy is found when the charge state is decreased during charging. Also, it is similarly the logic that the charge state is decreased during discharging, or charge state is not varied under the condition where influence of self-discharge can be ignored during resting. If discrepancy is case to this, correction is effected. Then, matrixing of such items may be performed to make discrepancy judgment with taking the matrix as discrepancy matrix.
  • [0053]
    While it is not possible to directly measure the state of the power storage means, the foregoing obvious phenomenon or characteristics are taken as set information to compare with the result of calculation. If discrepancy is found, the value of the storage means and the input of the arithmetic means are corrected with learning.
  • [0054]
    By this, it becomes possible to realize the state detection system of the power storage means which is high accuracy with lesser characteristic data to be used in arithmetic operation and simple in arithmetic operation, and a power source unit employing the same.
  • [0055]
    [0055]FIG. 3 is a circuit diagram showing an equivalent circuit of the power storage means. In FIG. 3, the reference numeral 201 denotes an electromotive force (OCV), 302 denotes an internal resistor (R), 303 denotes an impedance (Z), 304 denotes a capacitor component (C). There are illustrated a parallel connection pair of the impedance 303 and the capacitor component 304 and a series connection of the internal resistor 302 and the electromotive force 301. When a current I is applied to the power storage means, a voltage (CCV) between the terminals of the power storage means is expressed by an equation (1).
  • CCV=OCV+1R+Vp  (1)
  • [0056]
    wherein Vp is polarized voltage, Z and C are voltages of the parallel connection pair.
  • [0057]
    OCV is used for calculation of SOC or allowable charge and discharge current. In the condition where the power storage means is charged and discharged, it is not possible to directly measure OCV. Therefore, OCV is derived by subtracting IR drop and Vp from CCV as expressed by the following equation (2).
  • OCV=CCV−IR−Vp  (2)
  • [0058]
    [0058]FIG. 4 is a diagrammatic illustration showing SOC, an allowable charge current and allowable discharge current of the power storage means. Associating with increase of SOC, the allowable discharge current is increased and allowable charge current is decreased. Assuming the maximum allowable voltage of the power storage means is Vmax and minimum allowable voltage is Vmin, the allowable charge current Icmax and allowable discharge current Idmax are respectively expressed by the following equations (3) and (4).
  • Icmax=(Vmax−OCV)/Rz  (3)
  • Idmax=(OCV−Vmin)/Rz  (4)
  • [0059]
    wherein Rz is equivalent impedance of R, Z, C in FIG. 3.
  • [0060]
    Accordingly, upon discrepancy is found in that overcharging or over discharging is detected upon charging and discharging at a current smaller than or equal to Icmax and Idmax, the value of Rz is corrected. For example, Rz is increased by 1%.
  • [0061]
    [0061]FIG. 5 is a diagrammatic illustration showing variation of voltage during charging by a pulse current of the power storage means. A curve of CCV shown by a solid line is risen from a charge start timing (A) and is abruptly drops at a charge terminating timing (B). Dropping is due to IR drop. Subsequently, CCV is decreased moderately to gradually approach to the set information of OCV shown by one-dotted line. A voltage variation in this period mainly corresponds to Vp. On the other hand, the set information of OCV not influenced by the IR drop or Vp is increased from A to B during charging but is not varied during a period between B where a current is 0A to D (under the condition where influence of self-discharge or environmental temperature can be ignored). In contrast to this, the calculated value of OCV shown by broken line is not consistent with the set information of OCV, and shows moderately decreasing curve even from B to D.
  • [0062]
    When the equation (2) is used in calculation of OCV, R can be directly obtained by actually measuring CCV and I and expressed by the following equation (5) using variation amount dccv and dI in a short period.
  • R=dCCV/dI  (5)
  • [0063]
    Therefore, with the present invention, taking the fact that variation of OCV is 0V at 0A as set value, for example, when the calculated value of OCV during this period is varied as shown in FIG. 5, Vp is corrected.
  • [0064]
    On the other hand, when SOC is derived from OCV, the set value or logic of SOC and the calculated value are also varied as shown in FIG. 5. Even in this case, it becomes possible to detect discrepancy of Vp. Then, after correction of Vp, it is fed back to subsequent calculation.
  • [0065]
    (Third Embodiment)
  • [0066]
    The table 1 is a table showing a relationship between variation of SOC of the present invention and correction amount of Vp. With taking a time scale as t, and taking a timing where the current value becomes 0A as t=0, the correction amount of Vp is determined from variation of SOC at t<0 and variation of SOC at t>0. For example, if variation of SOC at t<0 is increase and variation of SOC at t>0 is also increase, Vp is decreased by 1%.
    TABLE 1
    SOC Variation Soc Variation
    (t < 0) (t > 0, Current 0A) Vp Correction
    Increase Increase −1%
    Increase Decrease +1%
    Decrease Increase +1%
    Decrease Decrease −1%
  • [0067]
    Then, these calculation is repeated for a plurality of times as time elapsed. By this, Vp gradually approaches to the set value by learning effect. Namely,Vp is automatically tuned.
  • [0068]
    While the absolute value of the correction amount is uniform at 1% here, it is preferred that this value is optimized depending upon kind of the power storage means, current pattern of the load, measurement error of the measuring means and so forth. On the other hand, as shown, it is preferred to apply Fuzzy theory for indicating direction of correction.
  • [0069]
    While state of the power storage means cannot be measured directly similarly to SOC or OCV, according to the present invention, the characteristics or normal phenomenon in the period where the current value is less than or equal to a predetermined value set forth above as set value or logic, the correction amount is derived by Fuzzy theory by comparing the result of calculation per se. This is fed back to the subsequent calculation to repeat learning calculation.
  • [0070]
    Therefore, whenever calculation is repeated, precision can be improved. On the other hand, since the individual difference of the initial characteristics, environment dependency, secular change and so forth are automatically tuned. Thus, these plurality of parameters and data of correction coefficient can be eliminated.
  • [0071]
    For example, in the foregoing example, Vp depends on complicate parameter, such as individual difference or secular change, and further individual difference of secular change and so forth. Upon modeling and reproducing these parameters accurately for taking in calculation, it becomes necessary to obtain the initial characteristics, a plurality of parameters, data to require substantial period and load. However, in the present invention, influence of these individual difference, secular change and so forth are calculated with learning under actual use environment, these parameters are not required.
  • [0072]
    (Fourth Embodiment)
  • [0073]
    [0073]FIG. 6 is a constructional illustration of the power source unit according to the present invention. In FIG. 6, the reference numeral 701 denotes a calculation procedure A, 702 denotes a calculation procedure B, 703 denotes a correction amount calculation procedure. The arithmetic means 104 shows a part of the calculation procedure, and the arithmetic means have the arithmetic procedure A and the arithmetic procedure B.
  • [0074]
    For example, the calculation procedure A 701 is taken as arithmetic procedure of SOC (hereinafter referred to as SOCV) derived from OCV set forth above, and the calculation procedure B 702 is taken as calculation procedure of SOC (hereinafter referred to as SOCi based on a current integration. In calculation of SOCi, the equation (6) is used.
  • SOCi=SOCo+100×d I/Q  (6)
  • [0075]
    wherein SOCo is an initial value of SOC upon starting of charging and discharging, d I is a various amount of the current integrated value, Q is a maximum chargeable charge amount (full capacity). Assuming a charge efficiency of the power storage means as ç, an integrated charge current as Ic and an integrated discharge current as Id, d I is expressed by the following equation (7)
  • d I=çxIc−Id  (7)
  • [0076]
    SOCi is superior in indicating variation amount in a short period, namely response characteristics, for directly calculation the current. However, an absolute value is not always correct due to individual difference or secular change of Q, influence of ç or erroneous accumulation of current integrator.
  • [0077]
    On the other hand, SOCV can be calculated the absolute value with high precision by learning. However, it takes a little period in learning, response characteristics is relatively low in comparison with SOCi. Therefore, by the correction amount calculation procedure 703, variation of SOCV and SOCi in relatively long period is compared to derive the correction amount to correct the item of d I/Q of the equation (6). On the other hand, SOCO is corrected with SOCV at arbitrary timing.
  • [0078]
    By this, it becomes possible to achieve both of response characteristics of SOCi and high precision calculation of SOCV. On the other hand, the correction amount is derived by comparing the results of calculation per se to feed back the results of calculation for subsequent calculation to repeat learning calculation. Since precision can be improved. Furthermore, since the individual difference of Q, secular change, influence of ç and accumulation of error in the current integrator can be corrected by learning calculation based on SOCV, these correction parameters are not required. Accordingly, it becomes possible to eliminate significant period and load spent for obtaining these parameters or data.
  • [0079]
    In addition, as the calculation procedure A 701, similar effect can be obtained using SOC calculated from the resistance of the power storage means or SOC calculated from electrolyte concentration.
  • [0080]
    [0080]FIG. 7 is a diagrammatic illustration showing a relationship between OCV and SOC of the power storage means. Associating with increase of SOC, OCV is increased gradually. Such relationship of SOC and OCV is shown in many of power storage means, such as lithium secondary battery, electric double layer capacitor and so forth.
  • [0081]
    (Fifth Embodiment}
  • [0082]
    In the shown embodiment, using the characteristics of the power storage means of FIG. 7, the maximum chargeable charge amount (full capacity)Q can be derived. For example, assuming that two different charge states are SOC1 and SOC2, residual capacity corresponding to these are Q1 and Q2 and current integrated value there between is dQ (=d I), the following equations (8) to (11) are established: SOC1 = 100 × Q1 / Q ( 8 ) SOC2 = 100 × Q2 / Q ( 9 ) SOC1 - SOC2 = 100 × ( Q1 - Q2 ) / Q = 100 × dQ / Q ( 10 ) Q = 100 × dQ / ( SOC1 - SOC2 ) ( 11 )
    Figure US20030195719A1-20031016-M00001
  • [0083]
    Thus, full capacity Q of the power storage means can be derived. Similarly, full capacity Q can be derived using SOC derived from the electrolyte concentration or internal resistor and the current integration value.
  • [0084]
    Then, by feeding back Q thus derived to the equation (6), influences of individual difference of Q and secular change can be corrected to permit further precise state detection. On the other hand, correction parameter of the individual difference and secular change becomes unnecessary to eliminate significant time and load required for obtaining parameters and data.
  • [0085]
    (Sixth Embodiment)
  • [0086]
    Table 2 is a table showing a relationship of the correction coefficient K of the full capacity Q relative to the initial capacity Q0 of the power storage means. In this embodiment, a ratio between the initial capacity of the power storage means stored in the storage means and the full capacity Q derived from the equation (11) is derived to obtain a correction coefficient K depending thereon.
    TABLE 2
    Q/Qo 1.0 0.9 0.8 0.7 0.6 0.5
    K 1.0 0.81 0.64 0.49 0.36 0.25
  • [0087]
    In general, the power storage means decreases the full capacity associating with secular change. At the same time, the internal resistance is increased. A continuous charge and discharge period derived from the residual capacity, allowable charge current and allowable discharge current derived from equations (3) and (4) and allowable heat generation amount (or cooling control) or allowable charge and discharge power and so forth have to be corrected the initial values depending upon secular change. The foregoing correct coefficient is used for correction of these. Then, these values are preferably optimized depending upon the kind or system of the power storage means.
  • [0088]
    As set forth above, with the present invention, influences of individual difference or secular change of the continuous charge and discharge period, allowable charge current and allowable discharge current and allowable heat generation amount (or cooling control) or allowable charge and discharge power and so forth is corrected to permit more precise state detection. On the other hand, these correction parameters becomes unnecessary. Accordingly, it becomes possible to eliminate significant period and load spent for obtaining these parameters or data.
