In this paper, a parametrization methodology based on the Genetic Algorithm meta-heuristic is proposed for the Chen and Rincón-Mora model parameter estimation, this model is used for the mathematical modeling of the Lithium-ion Polymer batteries lifetime. The model is also parametrized using the conventional procedures, which is based on the visual analysis of pulsed discharge curves, as presented in the literature. For both parametrization procedures, and for the model validation, experimental data obtained from a platform test are used. The results show that the proposed Genetic Algorithm is able to parametrize the model with better efficacy, presenting lower mean error, and also is a more agile process than the conventional one, been less subject to subjective aspects.
