Today portable defibrillators are considered as sophisticated devices by FDA (Food and Drug Administration). As a trend towards the widespread deployment of portable defibrillators in the hands of non-medical or non-technical personnel increases, there exists a need for a simple procedure to ensure that it will operate properly when needed.

According to the FDA the major cause of defibrillator failure was improper care of the rechargeable battery . The effective operation of a portable defibrillator depends critically on the condition of the battery which are defined by State-of-Charge and State-of-Health.

Reactions that occur at Electrodes

Positive LiMO2 → Li 1-xMO2 + x Li + + xe

Negative C + x Li + +xe → Li x C

Overall LiMO2 + C → Li x C + Li 1-x MO2

- Higher Energy density
- Higher voltage
- Long operating time
- Compact

SOC denotes the remaining pulses in a battery pack in one discharge cycle

SOH represents the remaining number of cycles (charge-discharge) that can be obtained from a battery pack in its entire life. When the battery pack is new it is said to have 100% SOH. As the battery ages SOH eventually decreases.

Efficient battery interrogation techniques are required for determining the state-of-charge (SOC) of a battery.

The three basic methods are:

1) Coulomb counting

2) Voltage delay and

3) Impedance method

In fuzzy logic, a quantity may be a member of a set to some degree or not be a member of a set to some degree. The boundaries of the set are fuzzy rather than crisp.

A fuzzy system is a rule-based mapping of inputs to outputs for a system.

- Mamdani Approach: Uses membership functions for both input and output variables
- Sugeno Approach: Output membership functions are “singletons” (zero order) or polynomials (first order).

- This Li ion battery pack consists of 12 cells connected in series parallel (4s3p configuration)
- Effective voltage of the battery pack is 16.8 volts(4.2 volts per cell)

The profile that we have adopted is

A constant current charging of 2.5 A till the battery voltage is 16.6172 v

A constant voltage charging of 16.6 v till the charge current drops below 100mA

The profile suggested by

Medtronic/ Physio Control was

Continuous discharge of 1.4 A and a discharge of 10 A for every 5 minutes for a period of 5 s

Load current profile Voltage recovery profile

- For discharge -- Electronic load 6063B from Agilent Technologies
- For the impedance and the voltage recovery measurements--Solartron 1280B,which is Potentiostat /Galvanostat /FRA
- For charge --Centronix BMS2000, The Battery Management System
- For different temperatures Tenney Environmental oven

- To control the Electronic Load the software is HP VEE
- To view and plot the impedance data its Zview and Zplot respectively
- To view and plot the voltage recovery profiles data its Corr view and Corr ware

- Constant current discharge at 1.4A for 5 minutes, monitoring the voltage of the battery pack
- Constant current discharge at 10 A for 5 seconds, monitoring the voltage of the battery pack
- Repeat this process for a total of 1100 seconds which includes three 10 A discharges
- EIS (Electro chemical Impedance spectroscopy) measurement over frequency range of 1Hz-1KHz
- Repeat above four steps until end of discharge is reached (2.5V/cell)

- Minimum voltage curves
- Difference voltage curves

- The locus of the minimum voltages of every pulse in one cycle forms one curve corresponding to Cxx in the graph

- The locus of the minimum voltages of every pulse in one cycle forms one curve corresponding to Cxx in the graph
- The above means the set of all As in figure shown

- The locus of the difference between the maximum and minimum voltages of every pulse in a cycle forms a curve Cxx in the figure.

- Voltage Difference=B-A
- The locus of the difference between the maximum and minimum voltages of every pulse (B-A) in a cycle forms a curve Cxx in the figure.

- Two models
- To predict SOC –Remaining pulses (implemented)
- To predict SOH –Cycle number (theoretical model)

- Inputs: Maximum voltage and Minimum voltage
- Output: Pulses remaining
- Type of mem. functions: Trapezoidal
- Type of inference : Sugeno
- No. of rules : 12
- 4 mem. Functions for Max. voltage
- 3 mem. Functions for Min. voltage

- Inputs: Maximum voltage and Minimum voltage
- Output: Cycle Number
- Type of mem. functions: Trapezoidal
- Type of inference : Sugeno
- No. of rules : 12

Features of HC12:

- On-Chip A/D conversion (any voltage between 0-5 volts;0-00H and 5-FFH )
- Instruction Set with Fuzzy Logic instructions (ability to implement trapezoidal and triangular mem. functions)

Voltage of the battery pack is stepped down to be given as input to HC12

- Impedance and Voltage recovery profiles collected for battery packs at room temperature and 00C
- Battery characteristics were analyzed and Minimum voltage curves and Difference voltage curves were developed
- Based on the voltage recovery profiles a good Fuzzy Logic Model was obtained to predict the SOC of the battery pack at room temperature with a minimum error as low as 0.9
- Implemented on Micro Controller HC12 with a very low error of +/-2 pulses

- This model can be extended to estimate the SOC of the battery packs at different temperatures
- An SOH meter that can predict the cycle number can also be developed provided, sufficient data is collected for the battery packs at different temperatures
