Experiment on charging an electric vehicle LiFePO4 battery after over-discharge

  • 1 Technical University - Sofia, Bulgaria


The efficiency and technical and economic properties of the electric cars depend mainly on the rechargeable traction battery. LiFePo4 batteries belongs to the lithium-ion type and has a number of advantages such as high capacity, long life cycle, resistance to fire at high temperatures or shock. They have safe and stable over-charging and over-discharging performances. This paper describes the process of charging the individual cells of an electric car battery after their over-discharge.
