Abstract

The non-uniform growth of microstructures in dendritic form inside the battery during prolonged charge–discharge cycles causes short-circuit as well as capacity fade. We develop a feedback control framework for the real-time minimization of such microstructures. Due to the accelerating nature of the branched evolution, we focus on the early stages of growth, identify the critical ramified peaks, and compute the effective time for the dissipation of ions from the vicinity of those branching fingers. The control parameter is a function of the maximum interface curvature (i.e., minimum radius) where the rate of runaway is the highest. The minimization of the total charging time is performed for generating the most packed microstructures, which correlate closely with those of considerably higher charging periods, consisting of constant and uniform square waves. The developed framework could be utilized as a smart charging protocol for safe and sustainable operation of rechargeable batteries, where the branching of the microstructures could be correlated with the sudden variation in the current/voltage.
