This paper discusses a simulation platform for predicting the behavior of a battery system comprising two batteries, which can be parallelized in a controllable way. The model of the battery, the load and the parallelization algorithm is developed and simulated in MATLAB® Simulink environment. The simulation platform and the proposed parallelization algorithm are validated in a real gardening application. The simulation results prove to be useful for further investigation into the benefits of battery parallelization in terms of reduced battery aging and improved energy efficiency.
