The paper considers the problem of increasing the information content of studies of electrochemical battery cells due to in-depth processing of the obtained experimental data. The necessity of developing software with a wider functionality compared to the standard software of battery testers and allowing the processing of experimental data obtained from different types of battery testers in a single interface is substantiated. The article describes the features of an experiment on cycling of electrochemical battery cells, the main parameters characterizing electrochemical battery cells – capacity, energy, charge and energy state, polarization resistance, self-discharge current. Algorithms for calculating and averaging parameters calculated in the program and used in the program data structures are presented.
