About This Course
Li-ion batteries due to their high energy density, efficiency and durability are ubiquitous energy storage devices used in smart phones, laptops, electrical vehicles, hybrid vehicles, UPS systems.
However, Li-ion batteries need electrical and electronic system for the following reasons:
1. To protect Li-ion battery against over-charging, over discharging and over-heating.
2. To balance the cells in series.
3. To connect or disconnect the battery to the High Voltage (HV) bus as per the need.
4. To communicate battery charge, health and power capability status to the user or the vehicle.
5. To communicate the battery diagnostic/ fault status to user / service personnel.
The above mentioned electrical and electronic system is referred to as Battery Management System (BMS). This BMS includes sensors, actuators, switches and Microcontroller centric electronic devices driven by software which is referred to as BMS
At the end of each training session, assignments are given to judge the understanding of the topics discussed.
