Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR MEASURING TEMPERATURE OF BATTERIES AND INTERNAL BATTERY COMPONENTS
Abstract:
Systems and methods for measuring temperature characteristics of a battery include one or more transducers coupled to the battery for transmitting and/or receiving sound waves through at least a portion of the battery. A temperature measurement unit is provided to determine a time-of-flight of sound waves through at least the portion of the battery based on transmitted and received sound waves through at least the portion of the battery, and to determine temperature characteristics of at least the portion of the battery based on the time-of-flight.
