"The applications of Li-ion batteries require higher energy and power densities, improved safety, and sophisticated battery management systems. To satisfy these demands, as battery performances depend on the network of constituent materials, it is necessary to optimize the electrode structure. Simultaneously, the states of the battery have to be accurately estimated and controlled to maintain a durable condition of the battery system. For those purposes, this research focused on the innovation of 3D electrode via additive manufacturing, and the development of fast and accurate physical based models to predict the battery status for control purposes. Paper I proposed a novel 3D structure electrode, which exhibits both high areal and specific capacity, overcoming the trade-off between the two of the conventional batteries. Paper II proposed a macro-micro-controlled Li-ion 3D battery electrode. The battery structure is controlled by electric fields at the particle level to increase the aspect ratio and then improve battery performance. Paper III introduced a 3D model to simulate the electrode structure. The effect of electrode thickness and solid phase volume fraction were systematically studied. Paper IV proposed a low-order battery model that incorporates stress-enhanced diffusion and electrolyte physic into a Single Particle model that addresses the challenges of battery modeling for BMS: accuracy and computational efficiency. Paper V proposed a single particle-based degradation model by including Solid Electrolyte Interface (SEI) layer formation coupled with crack propagation. Paper VI introduced a single-particle-based degradation model by considering the dissolution of active materials and the Li-ion loss due to SEI layer formation with crack propagation for LiMn₂O₄/Graphite battery"--Abstract, page iv.
