1. A method for predicting loading capability of a battery comprising:

  • measuring current I, voltage U and temperature T of the battery;

    forming an equivalent circuit with an equivalent circuit diagram -Uo-R-CS-, wherein Uo is voltage at t=o, R is resistance and CS is capacitance;

    correcting input voltage U′

    of the equivalent circuit diagram with respect to measured battery voltage U, the correcting containing as variables only current I, voltage U and temperature T and as a nonlinear term a logarithmic dependency on I;

    varying parameters of components of the equivalent circuit diagram and state variables;

    comparing measured values with corresponding values of responses of the equivalent circuit diagram of the battery; and

    determining the loading capability from matched parameters and state variables.
