There are several vital parameters to be monitored to achieve the optimum performance of a battery pack, such as the Powerwall Lifepo4 Battery. That’s why a battery management system is required.
What is a Battery Management System?
A battery management system (BMS) is technology dedicated to the oversight of a battery pack to deliver a targeted range of voltage and current for a specific duration of time against expected load situations. If it detects any unsafe conditions, it shuts the battery down to protect whatever it is installed in and the people who are using it.
The BMS, the brain of a battery pack, is a set of electronics that helps monitoring and managing the battery’s performance, preventing it from working outside its safety boundaries.
Its principal function is to help protect the battery cells from being damaged by overcharging or over-discharging. In addition, it estimates the remaining charge, screens the battery’s temperature and monitors the battery’s safety by examining for loose connections or external short circuits. It also has features to maximize the battery’s lifespan through balancing, which helps prevent capacity loss.
How does a Battery Management System Work?
Battery management system usually works by collecting data from the batteries. Based on this information, it acts accordingly. Amongst the parameters collected are each cell’s voltage, temperature, and current. It then analyzes this data and takes action to protect the battery by turning off charging when the state of charge is full or shutting down the system when a cell is over temperature.
Among the essential aspects that are covered by BMS, there are:
- Thermal management through the censor units by triggering the cooling mechanisms if it gets too high.
- Discharge and charge controller to protect the battery cells from being over-discharged or overcharged.
- Battery balancing by equalizing the voltages of all the battery cells to ensure that they are all at the same voltage.
- Safety monitoring by screening the system for faults and taking proper action if a problem is detected.
Furthermore, the BMS takes the data it receives to estimate the battery’s state of charge, state of health, and state of power.
