Abstract

An essential element for the diffusion and environmental impact assessment of electrochemical storage systems is their lifetime. This lifetime also impacts the overall cost of the equipment in which the storage system is used. At the same time, a number of applications, e.g. electric vehicles, do not allow a temperature control of the batteries, although the performances of the latter are very strongly linked to them. The phenomena investigated, such as aging, behavior at low temperature and rapid charge for low temperature, are complex and difficult to model. Only the establishment of databases representative of the conditions of use can lead to elements of response. The exploitation of these databases by artificial intelligence tools is certainly relevant but requires a learning on data representative of the conditions of use and of the phenomena to be evaluated. The work presented in this paper is in this context and is intended to model the influence of the rapid charge at low temperature (0 °C, −10 °C, −20 °C) on the lifetime (initial capacity loss) of lithium-Ion NMC elements. The problem with data-based approaches is the large number of tests required and the development in relevant experimental designs. Faced to this challenge, a consortium of French laboratories and manufacturers has been working together since the 2000s to carry out this type of work. The paper proposes to present a test campaign and summarizes the main results to assess the service life (loss of capacity) for a fast-charging application at low temperature and position them against the manufacturer data established at 25 °C. The impact of two partial discharge processes (50 %) will also be assessed. In a last part, we show that for low temperatures, even for the nominal charge current the life time is reduced to few dozens of cycles and a mechanical destruction of the cell with no activation of the current interrupt device is achieved. This study demonstrates and quantifies the very important impact of low-temperature charging processes on the lifetime of high energy lithium-ion NMC batteries.
