1. Apparatus for determining one or more parameters of an electrochemical cell or battery comprising:

  • response sensing circuitry coupled to said cell or battery and adapted to sense time-varying electrical response of said cell or battery generated as a result of time-varying electrical excitation of said cell or battery; and

    , computation circuitry coupled to said response sensing circuitry and adapted to utilize said response to evaluate elements of a circuit model comprising the series combination of a series R-L subcircuit and a plurality of parallel G-C subcircuits, said computation circuitry further adapted to evaluate one or more said parameters from values of one or more said elements.
