The Degradation of Li-ion Batteries: A Review


A technical paper titled “Battery Degradation in Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles: A Survey Study” was published by researchers at Clemson University and Operation Technology Inc.

Abstract (partial)
“This paper explains the detailed degradation mechanism inside the battery first. Then, the major factors responsible for the degradation and their effects on the battery during the operation of electric vehicles are discussed. Also, the different techniques used to model the degradation of a battery and predict its remaining life are explained in-depth, along with the techniques to abate the aging process. Finally, this study focuses on the research gaps, difficulties in predicting the lifetime, and reducing the degradation mechanism of a battery used in electric vehicles.”
