  • Publication number: 20220146590
    Abstract: A degradation degree assessment device for a secondary battery is to assess a degree of degradation of a secondary battery and includes a battery characteristic acquisition unit, a capacity estimation unit, and an assessment unit. The battery characteristic acquisition unit acquires a battery characteristic relating to a voltage transition of the secondary battery in a predetermined voltage section. The assessment unit assesses the degree of degradation of the secondary battery based on the battery characteristic acquired by the battery characteristic acquisition unit or based on a battery characteristic-related value computed on the basis of the battery characteristic.

  • Publication number: 20210339653
    Abstract: In a system for setting power supply of reusable secondary cell modules, a degradation level estimation unit estimates a degradation level of a cell-module performance of each of a plurality of secondary cell modules, based on: the history information items about the respective the secondary cell modules acquired by a history information collection unit; and the cell-module performances of the respective secondary cell modules collected by a cell performance collection unit. A suppliable quantity prediction unit predicts a suppliable quantity of power of each of the plurality of secondary cell modules in accordance with the degradation level of the cell-module performance of a corresponding one of the plurality of secondary cell modules. A supply balance setting unit sets a power supply balance among the plurality of secondary cell modules based on the suppliable quantity of power of each of the plurality of secondary cell modules predicted by the prediction unit.
