Researchers and developers use battery models in order to predict the performance of batteries depending on external and internal conditions, such as temperature, C-rate, Depth-of-Discharge (DoD) or State-of-Health (SoH). Most battery models proposed in the literature require specific laboratory test for parameterization, therefore a great majority do not represent an appropriate and feasible solution. In this paper three easy-to-follow equivalent circuit modeling methods based only on information contained in a commercial Li-Ion cell manufacturer’s datasheet are presented and validated at steady state, comparing simulation results and manufacturer’s curves. Laboratory results are included in order to demonstrate the accuracy of parameters estimation. Results of each method are presented, compared and discussed for a Kokam SLPB 120216216 53Ah Li-Ion cell.
