Electrochemical impedance study of commercial LiNi0.80Co0.15Al0.05O2 electrodes as a function of state of charge and aging
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
A comprehensive electrochemical impedance study is conducted on LiNi0.80Co0.15Al0.05O2 electrode material as a function of state-of-charge and aging. Electrodes are harvested from four commercial batteries with different state-of-health conditions. Odd random phase electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and the symmetric cell approach are applied in this work in order to obtain reliable impedance results. An equivalent electrical circuit model is constructed. The parameters related to the generalized finite-space Warburg element, the CPE element and the charge transfer resistance are further interpreted. Valuable information is obtained and closely linked to the physical phenomena. The charge transfer resistance has been proved to be the most reliable parameter for the estimation of state-of-health.
