Re: Soul Spy?

In Soul EV Spy app it is now calculated as min(100.0, (totcap * (1-maxdet/100.0) / nomcap * 100.0)), where totcap = 30.5 kWh, and nomcap = 27 kWh. It has a long time bothered me that we never could catch the algorithm used in the workshop instrument. I have been playing around with my logged data a...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

The screenshot on the previous post made me check some statistics from my old 2015 Soul. The interesting numbers are the Max and Min Deterioration Cell numbers. They show Max det #2 and Min det #8. My car had a change in deterioration numbers at 148 occations. The Min det was #8 in 76%, the Max det ...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

. This summer and fall there was a campaign on the 30kWh Soul here in Sweden, where Kia offered a 60,000 SEK (¨€6,000) rebate on top of the 60,000 SEK state incentive. In Juli I asked my dealer for a trade in and got a deal I couldn't reject. Took a long time, but this week I finally picked up my 20...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

.
Just had my car in for 105000km service and got new SOH reading from the KDS instrument:
Odometer: 106736km
SOH: 97.5%

My own readings from OBD:
Max det: 13.1
Min det: 11.4
Avg SOH: 97.8%

Re: Firmware update to DC fast charge to 94%?

- On the Internet there are numerous reports of all kinds of magic behavior by this upgrade. It magically restores your battery to new! The claim that it allows charging on Chademo straight through to 94% has plenty of non-reliable sources. The only reliable poster to discuss this was Elmil in Swed...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

It seems the picture host service I have been using has changed their base url, so all my posted pics are gone :( I'll give it another try. Here are my latest deterioration numbers, at 102,000 km: Max det: 11,2% Min det: 7,5% Avg SOH: 100,7% Avg SOH plotted from the start: In this one, the blue dots...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- The warranty line assumes a 7 year, 160,000km limit to 70% SOH. I think this is the norm for most countries. The exception is the United States where the warranty is 10 years 100,000 miles. In most European countries the limit is 150,000km, so the warranty of my car will end sometimes late next y...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

. The charge curve looks normal, 3h at 14.5V followed by 13.6V float, although in my car the Amps level out at 4A, which seems as a reasonable load by the ECU:s and the OBC+LDC, so not much current goes into the 12V bat. And yes, you are perfectly correct about the sensor, it's a current shunt on th...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

. Unfortunately it seems that only members can see pictures from elbilforum.no ... Regarding strategies for 12V charging, one must keep in mind that lead-acid batteries in general have a resting voltage of 12.8V when fully charged, and should then not be held at 14V+ for prolonged times. When they a...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

The DCDC output current is available in the Torque PID:s It's the 004_DC_Current_Out,AmpsOut line. You also have the DCDC Voltage output there. It is mostly slightly higher than the 12V battery voltage, due to the voltage drop. From the first page of this thread: , Low-Voltage DC-DC Converter LDC da...
