351 Practical Capacity

The practical capacity QP of a battery is always much lower compared to the theoretical capacity QT, due to practical limitations. The practical capacity of a battery is given as

where t0 is the time at which the battery is fully charged [SoD(t0)=0], and tcut is the time at which the battery terminal voltage is at Vcut. Therefore, Vt(tcut)=Vcut.
