Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with academic partners, Georgia Tech"s Center for Innovative Battery and Fuel Cell Technologies, Penn State University, and industrial partner Eagle Picher propose to create a physics-based modeling for predicting the life performance of Low and Middle Earth Orbit (LEO/MEO) Lithium-ion cells. The relationships between solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI), electrolyte chemistry, Li+ or other active material loss, temperature, depth of discharge, self-discharge, discharge rate, and capacity fade will be determined through the model. Development of Li-ion performance physics-based models will assume graphite as the negative electrode material. The statistical relationships between aging cells and measurable quantities will also be analyzed through non-parametric models. Methodologies to collect accelerated test data from batteries and to assess the ability to make performance predictions from these data will also be determined. Models created during Phase I will be validated using existing Li-ion battery data sets.
