Title: Device, system, and method for measuring internal impedance of a test battery using frequency response

Abstract

Battery impedance testing devices, circuits, systems, and related methods are disclosed. An impedance measurement device includes a current driver configured to generate an excitation current signal to be applied to a test battery responsive to a control signal, and a processor operably coupled with the current driver. The processor is configured to generate the control signal during an auto-ranging mode and a measuring mode. The auto-ranging mode applies the excitation current signal to the test battery over a plurality of different amplitudes to measure a response to the excitation current signal at each amplitude. The measuring mode applies the excitation current signal to the test battery for an amplitude responsive to the results of the auto-ranging mode. Improved sensitivity and resolution may be achieved for low impedance batteries with a rapid measurement time.
