Why Does Battery Pack Need Battery Management Systems ?

Battery Management Systems are the brains behind battery packs. They manage the output, charging and discharging and provide notifications on the status of the battery pack. They also provide critical safeguards to protect the batteries from damage.

A battery management system is essentially the “brain” of a battery pack; it measures and reports crucial information for the operation of the battery and also also protects the battery from damage in a wide range of operating conditions. Let’s take a look at a battery management system to familiarize ourselves with its components. The single most important function that a battery management system performs is cell protection.

Lithium ion battery cells have two critical design issues; if you overcharge them you can damage them and cause overheating and even explosion or flame so it’s important to have a battery management system to provide overvoltage protection .


Lithium ion cells can also be damaged if they’re discharged below a certain threshold, approximately 5 percent of total capacity. If the cells are discharged below this threshold their capacity can become permanently reduced. To ensure a battery’s charge doesn’t go above or below its limits, a battery management system has a safeguard device called a dedicated Lithium-ion protector 

Every battery protection circuit has two electronic switches called “MOSFETs.” MOSFETs are semiconductors used to switch electronic signals on or off in a circuit. 

A battery management system typically has a Discharge MOSFET and a Charge MOSFET. If the protector detects that the voltage across the cells exceeds a certain limit, it will discontinue the charge by opening the Charge MOSFET chip. Once the charge has gone back down to a safe level then the switch will close again.

Similarly, when a cell drains to a certain voltage, the protector will cut off the discharge by opening the Discharge MOSFET. 

The second most important function performed by a battery management system is energy management. 

A good example of energy management is your laptop battery’s power meter. Most laptops today are not only able to tell you how much charge is left in the battery but also what your rate of consumption is and how much time you’ll have left to use the device before the battery needs to be recharged. So, in practical terms, energy management is very important in portable electronic devices. 

The key to energy management is “Coulomb counting.” For example, if you have 5 people in a room and 2 people leave you’re left with three, if three more people enter you now have 6 people in the room. If the room has a capacity of 10 people, with 6 people inside it’s 60% full. A battery management system tracks this capacity. This state of charge is communicated to the user electronically through a digital bus called an SM BUS or through a state of charge display where you press a button and an LED display gives you an indication of the total charge in 20% increments. 

Battery management systems for certain applications like the one for this hand-held point-of-sales terminal also include an embedded charger consisting of a control device, an inductor (which is an energy storage device), and a discharger. The control device manages the charging algorithm. For lithium-ion cells, the ideal charging algorithm is constant current and constant voltage. 

A battery pack usually consists of several individual cells that work together in combination. Ideally, all the cells in a battery pack should be kept at the same state of charge. If the cells go out of balance, individual cells can get stressed and lead to premature charge termination and a reduction in the overall cycle life of the battery. The cell balancers of the battery management system, shown here, extend the life of the battery by preventing this imbalance of charge in individual cells from occurring. 

Now that we’ve gone over the basic components of a battery management system and what they do, in the other videos in the series we delve deeper by looking at battery pack design for different applications, from large scale to small scale and we’ll also take a look at the unique design challenges a battery pack designer faces like available space, heat dissipation requirements and how form factor or “usability” of a device factors into battery pack design.

  2. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Many thanks Isabel Isidoro Hinze

  3. Hello there. I found your website by the use of Google whilst searching for a comparable subject, your web site got here up. It seems to be great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks to come back then. Kacey Willdon Stefanie

  4. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post. I will definitely comeback. Linea Hieronymus Moazami

  5. Great goods from you, man. I’ve keep in mind your stuff previous to and you are just
    extremely excellent. I actually like what you have bought right
    here, really like what you are stating and the way in which wherein you say it.

    You are making it entertaining and you continue to care for to stay it sensible.
    I cant wait to learn much more from you.
    This is really a wonderful web site.

  6. Wow, fantastic blog structure! How long have you ever
    been blogging for? you make blogging glance
    easy. The full glance of your website is wonderful, as neatly as the content!

  7. You really make it seem so easy with
    your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
    me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of
    it!

  8. Hello there! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

    inspired! Very useful information specifically the remaining phase 🙂 I handle such info much.
    I was looking for this particular info for a long time.
    Thank you and best of luck.

  13. Fine way of telling, and good
    piece of writing
    to obtain data on the topic of my presentation focus, which i am going to deliver in college.

  14. I do trust
    all the ideas you have offered on
    your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work.

    Still, the posts are too short
    for newbies. May
    just you please prolong them a little from next time?
    Thank you for the post.

  15. There are certainly numerous details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice level to deliver up. I supply the thoughts above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up the place crucial thing shall be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I’m certain that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impression of only a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  16. I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning
    this blog. I really hope to check out the same
    high-grade content from you later on as well. In fact,
    your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own, personal blog now
    😉

      Thank you for liking our blog, and if you have blogs, we believe you will receive more conments and likes.

  17. Excellent beat ! I wish to apprentice at the same time as you amend your website, how could i subscribe for a weblog website?

    The account aided me a appropriate deal. I have been tiny bit
    familiar of this your broadcast provided bright transparent concept
