#### Quiz 3: Battery State-of-Charge (SOC) Estimation

Q1. Before attempting this quiz, please execute the Jupyter notebook for this lesson. The quiz will require that you enter results that can be computed based on the code in that notebook.

The simplest voltage-based SOC estimation method simply looks up the cell voltage under load in a table of SOC versus OCV. Using this method, for the dataset supplied, what is the root-mean-squared (rms) SOC estimation error for this dataset? Please enter your answer in percent, rounded to the nearest integer percent.

Note that rms error can be computed in Octave as sqrt(mean((true_value – estimated_value).^2)).

Q2. A slightly more complex voltage-based SOC estimation method first removes the ohmic voltage-drop term from measured voltage, and then looks up the modified voltage in a table of SOC versus OCV. Using this method, for the dataset supplied, what is the root-mean-squared (rms) SOC estimation error for this dataset? Please enter your answer in percent, rounded to the nearest integer percent.

Q3. Suppose that we implement a coulomb-counting method to compute cell SOC, but that our initial SOC estimate has 5% error.
