Rechargeable batteries are omnipresent and will be used more and more, for instance for wearables devices, electric vehicles or domestic energy storage. However, batteries can deliver power only for a limited time span. They slowly degrade with every charge-discharge cycle. This degradation needs to be taken into account when considering the battery in long lasting applications. Some detailed models that describe battery degradation processes do exist, however, these are complex models and require detailed knowledge of many (physical) parameters. Furthermore, these models are in general computationally intensive, thus rendering them less suitable for use in larger system-wide models. A model better suited for this purpose is the so-called Kinetic Battery Model. In this paper, we explore how this model could be enhanced to also cope with battery degradation, and with charging. Up till now, battery degradation nor battery charging has been addressed in this context. Using an experimental set-up, we explore how the KiBaM can be used and extended for these purposes as well, thus allowing for better integrated modeling studies.
