Lithium Battery Gauging, Coulomb Counting and Current Sensing

Background: The estimation of the state of charge (SOC) of a lithium battery is technically difficult, particularly in applications that don’t fully charge the battery or fully discharge it. Such an application is a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). The challenge stems from the fact that lithium batteries have a very flat voltage discharge characteristic. There […]
