Special Issue "Li-Ion Batteries: Modelling and Control from Manufacturing to Performance Evaluation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 December 2020.
Interests: System Identification; Li-ion Batteries; Reduced-order modelling
We invite you to contribute to this Energies Special Issue on new approaches to modelling and controlling of lithium ion batteries and their applications. The upcoming years are an exciting time for the demand of robust battery models and their applications. Various mathematical models are used to describe and address key challenges facing application of lithium–ion batteries. Multiphysics (electrochemical-thermal-stress) approaches are often utilised in the design optimisation of batteries, improve manufacturing approaches and to predict degradation. Empirical models are typically developed for use with control and systems applications. New research directions are now developed involving reduced-order models and physics-informed machine learning models that builds on the advantages of multiphysics and empirical modelling approaches.
There are several interesting challenges in such approaches, for example, robust parameter estimation schemes, relating model parameters and performance to the manufacturing stages, fast computational approaches, design of experiments for model development and the challenges involved when deploying battery models within the growing application space – battery pack systems in automotive, aerospace and grid applications. This special issue therefore welcomes new research that explores these challenges and will include research papers related to the following topics:
- Multiphysics, data-driven modelling of Lithium-ion batteries
- Battery manufacturing and performance prediction
- Model parameterisation and validation methodologies
- Degradation modelling, prognostics and diagnostics
- Experimental characterisation for modelling and simulation
- State-estimation and optimal control
- Battery pack and battery management systems
- Physics-informed machine learning models

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
