Battery powered electric vehicles are gaining popularity worldwide. This trend is driven by several factors including the need to reduce air and noise pollution, and dependence on fossil fuels. The main drawback of today’s electric vehicle is its limited range, and the long time duration that is required to charge the electric batteries. In recent years, significant progress (through research and development) has been made to accelerate the charging time of the electric vehicle batteries through pulse charging rather than supplying continuous current and/or voltage. The part to be focused on estimation of electrical parameters of the battery in the electrical vehicle, which is the most important factor to get information about possible available driving range. If the amount of remaining battery capacity can be displayed for the driver then it is possible to make decision on the time of recharging the battery. To know battery behavior under different conditions, it is necessary to know various battery performance parameters.
