This example shows how to simulate a battery pack that consists of multiple series-connected cells. It also shows how you can introduce a fault into one of the cells to see the impact on battery performance and cell temperatures. The battery pack is modeled in Simscape™ language by connecting cell models in series using arrays. You can represent the fault by defining different parameters for the faulty cell.
Simscape language allows you to declare arrays of components using
for loops. You can also use
for loops to specify connections between the member components. For example, you can declare multiple battery cells and connect them together. For more information, see the Case Study — Battery Pack with Fault Using Arrays.
