Abstract

In order to improve battery technology understanding the capacity fading method in batteries is very important. Battery models can be used to predict their behavior under various operating conditions. Here we proposed a simple dynamic model of lithium-ion battery with MATLAB/Simulink to observe the output characteristics of this energy storage device. Dynamic simulations are carried out, including the observation of the changes in battery terminal output voltage under different discharging/charging, temperature and cycling conditions. The simulation studies are presented for proving that the model is useful. At the end we will use this energy storage device to interconnect with HOMER. Then different possibilities of producing electricity from various renewable energy sources like solar, wind etc. will be discussed by using HOMER. MATLAB software, Simulink, HOMER and Power System toolbox are used in modeling and simulation process.
