Electrochemical properties of the battery are described in partial differential equations that are impossible to compute online. These internal states are spatially distributed and thus difficult to measure in the battery operation. A space-time separation method is applied to model the electrochemical properties of the battery with the help of the extended Kalman filter. The model is efficiently optimized by using LASSO adaptation method and can be updated through data-based learning. The analytical model derived is able to offer a fast estimation of internal states of the battery, and thus has potential to become a prediction model for battery management system. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

1. Introduction Hybrid electrical vehicles (HEV) are prevailing worldwide nowadays due to their environmental friendliness. Lithium-ion batteries are especially suitable for powering the HEV given their advantages in high energy density, weak memory effect and low environmental pollution. Battery management system aims to carry out the real-time monitoring of the battery status to ensure safety and health of batteries. Since many of battery states are not measurable, modeling of these immeasurable states become critical to the online monitoring. For physical modeling of electrochemical property of lithiumion battery, the one dimensional model is firstly proposed by

Doyle, Fuller and Newman [1], and further developed by Ramadass in the name of “Pseudo 2D model” by adding the capacity fading mechanism [2,3]. Though their work can simulate the small-scale battery cell well, it cannot work for the large-scale battery because the potential drop will be big to influence the current distribution in larger space. For a better modeling of battery physics, a 2D scale-up model is first developed for the large-scale battery [4], and then, the multi-scale and multi-dimension model (MSMD) is further proposed for better description of electrochemical property [5]. In summary, both the electrochemical property and the thermal property of the battery belong to distributed parameter systems (DPS) that are described in partial differential equations (PDE), and have temporal dynamics distributed over space. The above physical models are unsuitable for real-time operation due to heavy computation. For fast computation online,

2. Problem description A two dimensional model of Lithium ion battery is popularly used in modeling the large-scale battery [4,17]. As illustrated in Fig. 1, the current flux between the electrodes would be perpendicular to the electrodes and homogeneous along its flowing direction under the assumption that the distance between the two current collectors is very close. The domains Up and Un denote positive electrode and negative electrode, respectively. In real operations, the known inputs would be the boundary conditions: the applied current at the tab (iapp) measured by a Galvanometer and the terminal voltage (vterminal) by a Voltmeter. The mathematical equations for this model are presented in Appendix A. More Detailed information can be found in Refs. [4,17,18]. Difficulties of battery modeling lie in the following aspects:

analytical models simplified in ordinary differential equations (ODE) are needed. Principle component analysis (PCA) or ve (K-L) decomposition method is popularly used to KarhuneneLoe develop such models for DoyleeFullereNewman model [6e9]. However, no work has been reported for two dimensional scale-up model and MSMD model. Since the internal states of the battery are not measurable, the state observer is needed for the analytical modeling. The extended Kalman filter (EKF) [10e12], Sigma-point Kalman Filter [13,14], and Unscented Kalman Filter [15,16] are presented in modeling the depth-of-discharge (DOD) or state-of-charge. However, all these work are applied to the equivalent circuit model that is described in ODE. Since the battery is a typical spatiotemporal system, and up to now, no state observer has been reported for such kind of system. In this paper, we developed a spatiotemporal modeling method for online estimation of internal states of batteries, including DOD distribution, potential distributions, etc. First, the spatiotemporal dynamics of the battery will be decoupled into spatial basis functions and temporal variables. Space basis functions can be learned using KL method. Since the internal states DOD are immeasurable, the extended Kalman filter will be used and implemented in the forward-backward structure. The parameters can be identified more efficiently by using the LASSO adaptation method. Finally, after synthesizing the space functions and the estimated temporal variables, the spatiotemporal dynamics of the battery can be effectively constructed.

1) Nonlinear space/time coupled dynamics: the governing equations of the battery are nonlinear partial differential equations as given in Appendix A. This spatiotemporal dynamics is difficult to solve analytically and consumes extremely high computation for discrete solutions. 2) Uncertainty: arises due to the environmental disturbance, measurements inaccuracy, and battery aging. All these timevarying disturbances are difficult to model. 3) Immeasurable states: internal states of the battery system, such as, depth-of-discharge and potentials, etc. cannot be measured online. This makes the modeling more difficult. In rest of this paper, we will propose a spatiotemporal model based state prediction for the lithium-ion battery. First, the spacetime separation scheme will be applied to decouple spatiotemporal dynamics [19]. Then the extended Kalman filter will be designed to estimate the internal states of the battery in a forwardbackward structure [20,21]. The parameters in the filter will be efficiently optimized by using the LASSO adaptation method with uncertainty compensated from data-based learning. 3. Space-time separation based online modeling There are two critical internal states, DOD, and potential of positive/negative electrodes, which need to model. Since these two variables are spatially distributed, the spatiotemporal models are needed for a realistic estimation. The measurable boundary condition, (vterminal) and (iapp) will be the critical input to the modeling. Since the DOD has no direction connection to these boundary conditions, the extended Kalman filter is needed. 3.1. Modeling of depth-of-discharge (DOD) Since the DOD is an immeasurable state variable in the battery,

the modeling will consist of space/time separation method and the extended Kalman filter as shown in Fig. 2. The modeling process includes three major steps.  A space-time separation is first applied to have the space variables fi(z) identified by the KL decomposition method (see Appendix B).  The time variables qi(t) will then be estimated by the extended Kalman Filter [20,21] and optimized with LASSO adaptation method (see Appendix D), all these will be implemented in a forward-backward structure.

Since D(z,t) is a function of J(z,t) as shown in Eq. (A.6), substituting Eq. (3) into Eq. (A.6), we will have

By multiplying fj(z) to each side of the Eq. (4) and integrating them spatially, we will have,

3.1.1. Forward modeling The depth-of-discharge D(z,t) can be expressed in space/time decoupled form as Eq. (1),

Dðz; tÞ ¼


f ðzÞqi ðtÞ i¼1 i


Where fi(z) are spatial basis functions and qi(t) are the corresponding time variables. The potential difference between electrodes is assumed to have same spatial basis functions as D(z,t), and can be denoted as follows,

hðz; tÞ ¼ Vp ðz; tÞ  Vn ðz; tÞ ¼


f ðzÞzi ðtÞ i¼1 i


Where Vp(z,t) and Vn(z,t) are potentials of positive and negative electrode respectively, their formulations are summarized in Table A1 of Appendix A. After the space basis functions are identified by the KL method, the dimension reduction is required to reduce the infinite form of ffi ðzÞg∞ i¼1 in Eq. (1) and Eq. (2) intoffi ðzÞgki¼1 , where k is determined when x > 0.99 in Eq. (B.15). After substitution Eqs. (A.4) and (A.5) into Eq. (A.3) the intraelectrodes potential can be derived as Eq. (3),

  Jðz; tÞ ¼ a4 þ a5 Dðz; tÞ þ a6 Dðz; tÞ2 h  i  hðz; tÞ  a0 þ a1 Dðz; tÞ þ a2 Dðz; tÞ2 þ a3 Dðz; tÞ3 (3)

The basic idea of the KL approach is to find modes that represent the dominant character of the system. The maximum number of nonzero eigenvalues is n  N and the KL expansion yields empirical Eigen functions (EEFs) fi(z) in a descent order manner according to the magnitude of the corresponding eigenvalues. The ratio of the sums of k largest eigenvalues to the total sum gives the fraction of the variance retained in the k-dimensional space defined by the Eigen-function associated with those eigenvalues. This ratio can be mathematically described as Eq. (B.17) in the paper. Typically, a value of more than 0.9 is often taken for h. In this paper, the P Pn ratioh ¼ k¼1 i¼1 li = i¼1 li  0:99, this means the first order of the EEF captures more than 99% dominant behavior of the distributed parameter system. This characteristic is determined by the specialty of physical property of the battery. Thus the first order of fi(z) will be used in modeling of D(z,t) and shown in Fig. 3. For convenience, the termffi ðzÞgki¼1 can be simply written as f(x), fqi ðtÞgki¼1 as q(t) andfzi ðtÞgki¼1 as z(t) respectively. Substituting one-order form spatial basis functions into Eq. (6),

By reformulating the left hand side of the Eq. (7), Eq. (R8) as follows,


The q(t) and z(t) in Eq. (7) are unknown variables. From Fig. 1, we can see that the terminal voltage vterminal is actually the boundary point measurement of the potential difference at electrodes. Then

Since the terminal voltage vterminal is measurable, by substituting Eq. (10) to Eq. (9), only one time variable needs to identify in Eq. (11),

variable of D(z,t). By combining qi(t) with the spatial basis function f(z), the depth of discharge D(z,t) can be constructed. As shown in Fig. 2, identification of qi(t) requires two real-time measurement iapp and Vterminal with their relationship clearly shown in Fig. 1. Without considering the spatial effects, the depth of discharge (DOD) can be calculated by coulomb counting method as [22].

It is obvious that the temporal effects of DOD are the cumulative Rt effect of applied currentIðtÞ ¼ 0 iapp dt. Since I(t) is known due to measurement of iapp, so q(t) can be identified with these two known measurement iapp and vterminal under the forward-backward structure in Fig. 2. the relationship between I(t) and q(t) is identified in data based approach as Eq. (13).

The LASSO method can be used to reduce complexity of the identification matrix and make the parameter estimation more efficient. 3.1.3 Online parameter estimation It is always difficult to figure out model structure, like number of parameters, in the regression method. LASSO, which is short for least absolute shrinkage and selection operator [23], can automatically select the important parameters by shrinking the trivial parameters to zero. So, the LASSO is used to enhance the extended Kalman filter (see Appendix C). Model uncertainties such as environmental disturbance and noises will be simulated by adding disturbance terms wk and vk, which are assumed to follow Gaussian distributions N(0,Pk) and N(0,Rk) respectively. The parameter identification in the Kalman filter can be expressed in a discrete form as follows.

With the online estimated{b q k } and offline identified space basis function {f(z)}, the spatiotemporal model of D(z,t) can be constructed and updated in the proposed forward-backward learning structure. 3.2. Modeling of potentials

Since the terminal voltage vterminal is the potential difference that can be measured at the boundary, so the extended Kalman filter is not needed. The potential of positive electrode can be expressed in the following form of time/space separation.

wheref4i ðzÞgki¼1 are spatial temporal basis functions derived by KL method. Similarly in the previous section, the first order off4i ðzÞgki¼1 is sufficient to cover dominant dynamics of Vp(z,t) measured in Eq. (B.8). Thus, spatial functionsf4i ðzÞgki¼1 can be simplified into 4(z) and the corresponding temporal variablesfai ðtÞgki¼1 into a(t). The terminal voltage vterminal can be expressed as the potential at the measurement point in Eq. (17),

 Vp ðz; tÞz¼z


  ¼ 4 zpmea aðtÞ


Where zpmea is the measurement point at the tab where the terminal voltage can be measured by Voltmeter and the potential of negative electrode at tab is usually set as zero. Since vterminal and 4(zpmea) are known, thus a(t) can be derived analytically as

  aðtÞ ¼ vterminal =4 zpmea


The modeling of a(t) is shown in (c) of Fig. 3 that matches well with the real measurement. From Eq. (2), the potential of negative electrode can be expressed as.

Vn ðz; tÞ ¼ Vp ðz; tÞ  hðz; tÞ


In traditional approaches, vterminal is used as the index to prevent over-voltage (during discharging) and under-voltage (during charging). However, vterminal is the temporal variable measured at the fixed location and the voltage over the battery space is the spatiotemporal variable that cannot be measured online but can be simulated using the physical model. With the spatial distribution of potential difference obtained, we can propose a new indicator to prevent the over-voltage and under-voltage over entire working space as given below.

upper  limit indicator ¼ maxðhðx; tÞÞ


lower  limit indicator ¼ minðhðx; tÞÞ


4. Model validations The proposed spatiotemporal models will be evaluated in the real-time battery test experiment. The current profiles are produced by the UDDS test of hybrid electrical vehicles. A Gaussian noise with 10% signal-to-noise ratio per sample in dB is added to


the applied current iapp and terminal voltage vterminal as shown in Fig. 4. The spatial basis function is identified offline as shown in Fig. 3. The estimated temporal variable q(t) in Eq. (1) will be compared between the analytical modeling and the physics modeling in COMSOL. Since the initial value of DOD is usually unknown, so initial value selected for b q k may not be correct. The proposed modeling method can have a good prediction performance for both correct and incorrect initial value of b q k as shown in Fig. 5. The root mean square errors (RMSE) under different conditions are summarized in Table 1. Since both DOD and potential are spatiotemporal variables, the predicted spatial distributions are presented in Fig. 6, with corresponding errors summarized in Table 2. The total computation time of the proposed model is within 1 s, while the physics-based model in COMSOL cost about 20 min. Thus the spatiotemporal model developed is efficient and reliable in estimating the internal states of lithium-ion batteries. The voltage measurement vterminal cannot represent the potentials of the battery over entire space. The proposed spatiotemporal modeling can provide internal information over entire working space. To better compare the value of vterminal and h(z,t), we plot yterminal over the working space. The comparison of vterminal and potential difference h(z,t) is plotted in Fig. 7. The Fig. 7 shows that the largest potential is bigger than vterminal and lowest potential difference is smaller than vterminal. Thus the extreme values of “potential difference distribution” can be used as the indicators to improve the battery protection. The predicted h(z,t) in Fig. 7, demonstrates that Eqs. (20) and (21) can be better indicators to prevent over-voltage and under-voltage. 5. Conclusion A spatiotemporal modeling method has been developed to online estimate the internal states of lithium-ion battery. The spatial functions are identified using KL method. Then the temporal variables are identified with help of the extended Kalman filter, and optimized by the LASSO adaptation method. The space-time separation based analytical models developed can predict the dynamic performance over entire working space in a very small computation time compared with the physics-based model in COMSOL. Thus, the developed model can work for online prediction of the battery state. The real experiment demonstrates the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed modeling method.

The two-dimension model for Lithium-ion batteries only considers the Ohm's law and the charge conservation on the electrodes [6]. As shown in Fig. 1, the applied current flows into the battery though one tab and flows out though another tab. Due to the ohm resistance of the electrodes, the current is not distributed evenly over space. Based on the continuity of current in the electrodes, the following equations can be derived,

Where (,,,) denotes the inner product, 〈,〉 denote the ensemble average and k,kis the induced norm kfk¼(f,f)1/2. Then the problem turns to maximize 〈j(y,f)j2〉 subject to kfk2 ¼ 1. The constraint kfk2 ¼ 1 is imposed to ensure f is unique. Then the corresponding Lagrangian function can be established as Eq. (B.2).

where rp and rn are resistance at positive and negative electrodes, Vp(z,t) and Vn(z,t) are potentials of positive and negative electrodes respectively, as provided in the Table A1. The inter-electrode current density J(z,t) can be written as a polarization expression of potential difference Vp(z,t)Vn(z,t) [6],

Interchanging the order of the averaging operation and the inner product, the quantity in the brackets can be written as Eq. (B.5)

To further simplified the quantity in the brackets, the linear operator R is defined by Rf¼〈(f,y)y〉, then Eq. (B.5) can be simplified as Eq. (B.6),

The interested spatiotemporal observationsfyðxi ; tÞgN;M are i¼1;t¼1 generally called snapshots. They are uniformly sampled from the

Therefore, the optimal condition Eq. (B.8) reduces to eigenvector/eigenvalue problem of the integral equation:

By the methods of SchmidteHilbert technique or the method of snapshots, fi(x) can be expressed as a linear combination of the snapshots,

The above matrix Ctk is symmetric and positive definite. Eigenvectors gi¼[gi1,...,giL] corresponding ith eigenvalues can be derived by the standard method of eigenvalue decomposition. The above eigenvector of matrix eigenvalue in Eq. (B.15) is then substitute into Eq. (B.13) to generate the spatial basis functions fi(x). Arranging the eigenvalues l1>l2>l3/>ln in decent order, and the ratio between cumulative sums of first k eigenvalues to the total can be determined as Eq. (B.17).

For x, a value of more than 0.99 is often taken which means the 99% dominance feature has been captured by the k-dimension spatial basis functions.

LASSO is short for least absolute shrinkage and selection operator [23]. The main idea of LASSO is that it adds the L2-norm of the parameter vector to the objective function and maintains it within a preset value. The objective function for parameter (q) estimation of LASSO is

2 1 b q ¼ argmin y  FT q þ lkqk1 2

P where y is the output, F is the input features and kqk1 ¼ D i¼1 jqi j is the L1-norm, l is a hyper parameter that controls its influence. To optimize the objective function, q can be written as a difference between two vectors with positive entries

q ¼ qþ  q

Extended Kalman filter is the nonlinear version of Kalman filter which deals with nonlinear state estimation problem under the noisy measurements [20,21]. The problem can be formulated as follows.

xk ¼ f ðxk1 ; uk1 Þ þ wk1


zk ¼ hðxk Þ þ vk


Thus the objective function can be rewritten as

  2  X 1  b qþ þ q q ¼ argmin y  FT qþ  q þ l i i 2 qþ ;q i þ

Where wk1 and vk are assumes to be known zero-mean Gaussian process noise with wk~N(0,Q) and vk~N(0,R), uk1 is the control vector. The function f predicts system states xk from previous estimate xk1 and function h provides the expected measurement zk. The Jacobian matrix is evaluated at each time step. The implementation of the EKF includes prediction phase and innovation phase. In the prediction phase, the system state is predicted by

  b x kjk1 ¼ f b x k1jk1 ; uk1

 qþ  , the objective function can be written in a q standard form of quadratic program. 

By defining x ¼

1 min xT Hx þ f T x 2 


   FFT f ¼ l1  Fy , and 1 is the vector of FFT T T Fy FF FF ones. Thus, the parameter q is derived by solving the above optimization problem. Therefore L1-norm forces parameters of trivial feature to zero so that the complexity of the model can be reduced. whereH ¼
