The thermal runaway model used is a semi-empirical model based on a kinetic equation, parametrised by three parameters (m, n, p). It is believed that this kinetic equation can describe any reaction. The option of parameters is often made without justifications. We assumed it necessary to develop a solution to select the parameters. The method proposed is based on data coming from an accelerating rate calorimeter (ARC) test. The method has been applied on data obtained for cells aged on different conditions. Thanks to a post-mortem analysis and simulations carried out using the parameters obtained, we have shown that the ageing mechanisms have an important impact on the parameters.
