  • Publication number: 20190056455
    Abstract: A circuit is formed by connecting an external power source to a charged electrical storage device so that a polarity of a voltage of the external power source is reverse to a polarity of a voltage of the charged electrical storage device, and the voltage of the external power source is adjusted so that a current does not flow right after the connection. Then, current measurement to acquire a current value after convergence of the current flowing through the circuit due to a voltage drop of the electrical storage device and quality determination based on the current value after convergence are performed. In the current measurement, resistance measurement to actually measure a circuit resistance and prediction to predict a convergence timing of the current based on the actually measured circuit resistance are performed. The current value is acquired when a predicted convergence timing comes.
