In order to create a control observer for any battery type in a structured and at least partially automated manner, first, a nonlinear model of the battery, in form of a local model network including a number of local, linear, time-invariant, and dynamic models, which each have validity in specific ranges of the input variables, is determined from the measuring data of a previously ascertained, optimized experimental design via a data-based modeling method. For each local model (LM
