What does SoC, SoH and DoD mean?
SoC stands for State of Charge, which is a measure of how much energy is remaining in a battery as a percentage of its fully charged capacity. So, if a battery has a 50% SoC, it means that it has used up 50% of its total energy capacity.
SoH stands for State of Health, which is a measure of the overall health and performance of a battery over time. It reflects the battery's ability to hold a charge and deliver its rated capacity. A battery with a high SoH will be able to hold a charge for a longer period of time and will have a longer overall lifespan than a battery with a low SoH.
DoH stands for Depth of Discharge, which is a measure of how much energy has been drawn from a battery compared to its total capacity. For example, if a battery has a 50% DoH, it means that it has been discharged to the point where it has used up 50% of its total energy capacity.
Together, SoC, SoH, and DoH are important metrics for understanding the performance and overall health of a battery. They are often used in the context of battery management systems to monitor and optimize the use of batteries in various applications, such as electric vehicles and renewable energy systems.
