The concept of Digital Twin (DT) is broadly explored in literature regarding different application fields since it promises to reduce design time, enable design and operation optimization, enhance after-sales services and reduce overall expenses. While the particular perceived benefits strongly encourage the use of DT, in the battery industry the consistent implementation approach and quantitative assessment of changing a battery DT is definitely missing. This paper is usually a part of a continuous study that investigates the particular DT functionalities and quantifies the DT-attributes across the life cycles phases of a battery system. The critical question is regardless of whether battery DT is really a practical and realistic way to meeting the growing challenges associated with the battery industry, like degradation evaluation, usage marketing, manufacturing inconsistencies or second-life application possibility. Within the scope of this papers, a consistent approach of DT implementation for battery power cells is presented, plus the main functions from the approach are tested on a Doyle-Fuller-Newman model. In basis, a battery DT can offer improved representation, efficiency estimation, and behavioral forecasts based on real-world data along with the integration of battery life period attributes. Hence, this paper identifies the efforts regarding implementing a battery DT and provides the quantification attribute for future academic or industrial research.
