What Is A BMS For Battery

What is A BMS for battery? A Battery Management System (BMS) is an electronic system designed to monitor and manage the performance and safety of a battery pack. The BMS plays a critical role in ensuring the optimal functioning, longevity, and safety of battery cells, particularly in applications involving rechargeable batteries like lithium-ion and LifePo4 battery.

Function of BMS

The BMS is responsible for monitoring, controlling, protecting and equalizing the battery. Its main functions include the following:

Functions Of (BMS)Battery Management Systems
  • Monitoring and controlling the state of the battery: The BMS can monitor the battery’s parameters such as voltage, current, temperature, SOC (state of charge) and SOH (state of health), as well as other information about the battery. At the same time, it can also control the charging and discharging process of the battery to ensure that the battery is charged and discharged within the safe range and minimize damage and aging.
  • SOC equalization: during the use of battery packs, there may be an imbalance in the SOC of the battery, which makes the performance of the battery pack decline or even lead to battery failure. bms can solve this problem through the battery equalization technology, so that the SOC of all the battery monomers remain consistent.
  • Preventing overcharging or over-discharging of batteries: overcharging or over-discharging of batteries will cause damage to the batteries. the BMS can control the battery voltage when charging to ensure the real-time status of the battery, and at the same time, stop charging when the battery reaches its maximum capacity.
  • Ensure system remote monitoring and alarm: BMS can transmit data through wireless network and other means to send real-time data to the monitoring end. Meanwhile, it can also send fault detection and alarm information regularly according to the system settings.

  • Battery unit monitoring: including voltage, current and temperature sensors, used to monitor the status of the battery in real time.
  • Data Acquisition Unit: collects sensor data for preliminary processing.
  • Central processing unit (CPU): analyze the data and make control decisions.
  • Communication interface: used for communication between BMS and external systems (such as inverter, monitoring system).
  • Battery cell balance management: Balance the battery cells when needed to ensure the performance of the whole battery pack.

BMS Application Scope

BMS has a wide range of applications and can be used in home energy storage, industrial energy storage, transportation energy storage and other fields. For home energy storage, BMS can store the electricity generated from home solar panels for use at night or in bad weather. In industrial energy storage, BMS can be used for grid regulation, peak and valley leveling, etc., and can also be used as a backup power source. In transportation energy storage, BMS can be used in energy storage devices for electric vehicles to improve the range and efficiency of electric vehicles.

What are the problems with not using a BMS?

  • Any battery pack without a BMS system is a bomb, and the size of the power generated by the explosion is directly proportional to the capacity of the battery pack;
  • The battery pack will charge until it explodes (because there is no BMS system to protect against overcharging);
  • The battery pack will be discharged to scrap until (because there is no BMS system over-discharge protection);
  • The battery pack short-circuit and over-current over-temperature will lead to battery pack explosion;
  • Can not monitor and control the battery state;
  • Can not realize SOC equalization;
  • Can not realize remote monitoring and alarm;
