The known methods of State-of-Charge (SoC) indication in portable applications are not accurate enough under all practical conditions. This paper describes a real- time evaluation LabVIEW system for an SoC algorithm, that calculates the SoC in [%] and also the remaining run-time available under the valid discharge conditions. With the described system the accuracy of the SoC algorithm and its validity can be determined. The final goal of the SoC algorithm is to predict the remaining capacity of the battery and the remaining run-time with an accuracy of 1 minute or better under all realistic user conditions, including a wide variety of load currents and a wide temperature range. The basis of the SoC algorithm is current measurement and integration during charge and discharge state and voltage measurement during equilibrium state. Experimental results show the testing ability of the real-time evaluation system and the effectiveness of the novel approach for improving the accuracy of the SoC indication.
