Research on the lithium-ion battery system revealed that it has vastly more potential for high-power applications than other existing batteries. A lithium-ion battery system has been developed for parallel hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) application. This battery system provides around ten times the specific power of conventional batteries and also achieves high recharging performance and high charge/discharge efficiency. Evaluation results indicate that it is a highly promising energy source for parallel HEVs.
