Abstract
Yardney/Lithion, Inc. in collaboration with Penn State University (PSU) proposes to undertake an in-depth study of the over-discharge and overcharge behavior of the Li-ion battery, and develop and implement an appropriate prognostics and health management (PHM) technology in relation to its deployment in the JSF. The method consists of measuring the capacity and impedance changes in the battery and evaluating the datausing hybrid automated reasoning schemes involving neural network, fuzzy logic and decision theoretic methods. It is proposed to apply these methods to develop a PHM for the Li-ion battery in relation to its use in the JSF.
