Modeling of Characteristics of Lithium-Sulfur Batteries Based on Experimental Evaluation of Electrochemical Properties of Electrode Materials

To model the characteristics of lithium-sulfur batteries based on the experimental evaluation of the electrochemical properties of electrode materials, the software "Battery Designer", included in the software package “ElChemLab”, was developed. The possibilities of software are described. The specific energy of lithium-sulfur batteries is compared for different surface capacitances of a positive electrode and for different amounts of electrolyte.

Simulation and estimation of lithium-sulfur battery charge state using fuzzy neural network

The possibility of determining the charge state of lithium-sulfur batteries using the ANFIS model was estimated. Easily measurable in practice physical quantities were used as input parameters of the model. They are the battery voltage, the rate of its change and the number of previous cycles. The analysis of ANFIS models with various parameters (the number and type of membership functions) was carried out. It was shown that ANFIS is a model that makes it possible to estimate the charge state of a lithium-sulfur battery with the accuracy of more than 95%.

The binder influence on the performance of positive electrodes of lithium-sulfur batteries

The comparison of performance of positive electrodes of lithium-sulfur batteries made using the binders based on fluoroplastic (PVDF Solef 5310 and Kynar) and polyethylene oxide (PEO) was carried out. The electrodes made using PVDF Kynar or limited amounts of PEO were shown to have certain advantages. It was also found that electrodes with PEO had an increased specific capacity during the initial period of cycling, whereas electrodes with Kynar were characterized by the minimum capacity fading during cycling.
