Battery Remaining CapacityHi,
I am writing an application to find the current battery capacity in the driver level. My board has Li_Ion battery. I can get the following parameters from the battery driver: 1) Voltage 2) Current 3) Temperature. I have to find out the remaining battery capacity with the above params. I read some article which says we have to consider 1)temperature derate factor and 2)depth of discharge to calculate the capacity with accuracy. Please help me in this regard. I have gone through the posts made in this forum. All the posts are discussing about /proc/acpi filesystems. But my case is different. Regards, Jay |

Maybe you could specify in what regards your case is different? I can't help you, as I am not much of a programmer, but that information might help some one who can to give you more specific help.

I have to find out the remaining battery capacity without /proc/acpi file system.
I have to use the following parameters to calculate the battery capacity. 1) Voltage 2) Current 3) Temperature. I read in an article to find the current battery energy in Watt-Hours. E = C * Vavg * (tempdefactor/100) * (depthdischarge/100) where, tempdefactor -> Temperate derating factor depth discharge -> depth of discharge. Can i use this formula to calculate the current available energy of a battery? If so, what value i can use for tempdefacor and depthdischarge? Is there any spec or tables to find out these values based on temperature and ageing? Hope am not confusing you. |
