Cell Temperature Sensing

cell temperature limits

Cell temperature sensing is a critical function of any Battery Management System (BMS) this is because the cell temperature needs to be kept within a band to maintain safe operation. This band is narrower still to maintain the lifetime of the cell and hence reduce ageing. Cell Temperature For each cell the manufacturer will define … Read more

Passive Cooling

Passive battery cooling

Passive cooling means the battery cell or pack is not actively cooled, instead it relies on heat conduction, radiation and convection. This heat transfer will apply in both directions, to and from the environment. Passive cooling should be the starting assumption for all battery pack designs, the drive cycles and user cases could set requirements … Read more

Battery Management System

Batteries are the heart of an Electric Vehicle but the Battery Management System is more like the brain which keeps the Heart pumping out electricity to the Motor safely and at required output. Electric
