In this paper, the ac impedance analysis is used to explore the optimal discharging frequency for a Li-ion battery. Experiments indicate that the optimal discharging frequency is at the minimum ac impedance frequency f Zmin for a conventional pulse-current (PC) discharging. In addition, a sinusoidal current (SC) discharging strategy is also proposed to achieve better performances. This SC discharging strategy improves the discharging capacity, discharging efficiency, and rising temperature of the Li-ion battery by about 1.3%, 1.32%, and 41.9%, respectively, as compared with the traditional constant-current discharging.
