    A computationally efficient Li-ion electrochemical battery model for long-term analysis of stand-alone renewable energy systems

    , Article Journal of Energy Storage ; Volume 17 , 2018 , Pages 93-101 ; 2352152X (ISSN) Astaneh, M ; Dufo Lopez, R ; Roshandel, R ; Golzar, F ; Bernal Agustin, J. L ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier Ltd  2018
    Abstract
    In this paper we introduce a Simplified Single Particle Model (SSPM), which is obtained from the general mathematical formulation of Li-ion batteries. The model is validated by using different commercial graphite/LiFePO4 cells, and results show agreement with more complicated models and experimental data for low operating currents of less than 1C. A maximum relative error of less than 2% can be observed to estimate cell voltage in the plateau region of the charge/discharge curves. Therefore, the proposed model is suitable in the case of stand-alone renewable energy systems, where battery current is typically lower than C/10. By increasing the current, the SSPM deviates from more accurate...
