Identify the causes of battery cell defects by measuring AC impedance at multiple frequencies. The capability to sweep over a wider frequency than for LIBs allows to capture the AC impedance curve that is required to determine the Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) characteristics of all-solid batteries.
When measuring internal impedance of individual batteries, the AC impedance curve obtained by EIS measurement is separated into bulk impedance and interface impedance by equivalent circuit analysis. Especially for all-solid batteries it is necessary to measure impedance over a wider frequency range.
Impedance measurement instruments capable of sweeping over a wider frequency range are needed to capture the AC impedance curve.
IM3536 can capture an impedance curve from 4Hz to 8MHz. For impedance measurements at low frequencies, we recommend the IM3590, which can measure from 1 mHz.
„Equivalent Circuit Fitting“ output image
“Multi-plot“ is one of two free web applications provided by HIOKI that enables you to draw a Nyquist or Cole-Cole plot simply by loading a file in your web browser.
The other application is a very powerful analysis tool called “Equivalent Circuit Fitting”. It supports the analysis and comparison of vast amounts of data. Impedance curves that cannot be analyzed with a simple equivalent circuit can be analyzed with a detailed model to obtain accurate equivalent circuit parameters.
