Self Discharge of Cells

self discharge

Self discharge of cells is dependent on the chemistry, temperature and age of the cell. These reactions occur in any electrochemical systems and are very difficult to avoid completely. This is because some self discharge reactions involve chemical reactions which will always take place at a rate proportional to temperature. However, this does mean the … Read more

Cell Balancing

Cell balancing is all about the dissipation or movement of energy between cells. The aim being to align them all with respect to state of charge. Aligning the state of charge of all of the cells in a pack will allow the pack to deliver the most energy and power. A set of cells connected … Read more

Cells in Series

When connecting cells in series the negative terminal of the first cell is connected to the positive terminal of the second cell. The negative terminal of the second cell is connected to the positive terminal of the third cell. This continues until we reach the total number of cells required in series. The nominal voltage … Read more
