The entropy coefficient is an important quantity to describe thermodynamic processes of battery cells and to model the temperature dependency of the open-circuit voltage. Determining the entropy via potentiometric measurements is often time-consuming. Therefore, several methods were developed to quickly estimate the entropy coefficient. This paper presents a new method, which is relatively simple in its execution and evaluation. The method is based on relating a dynamic temperature change to the cell's voltage change at an induced exponential temperature progression. Due to the dynamic of this process, the measurement time will be reduced compared to the potentiometric method by factor 13 for the executed experiments under its stated conditions. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd
