BMS is short of “Battery Management System”. Our ENERNOVA portable power station has a very reliable battery management system. It can be the brain of a battery pack.
The BMS is a set of electronics that monitors and manages all of the battery’s performance. And it is a technology dedicated to the oversight of a battery pack, which is an assembly of battery cells, electrically organized in a row x column matrix configuration to enable delivery of targeted range of voltage and current for a duration of time against expected load scenarios. The oversight that a BMS provides usually includes:
Monitoring the battery
Providing battery protection
Estimating the battery’s operational state
Continually optimizing battery performance
Reporting operational status to external devices
Lithium-ion batteries have a lot of advantages over their lead-acid counterparts. They’re lighter, more efficient, charge faster, and have a longer lifespan. However, they’re susceptible to conditions that can damage the battery pack. Tapping into all of this potential requires lithium-ion batteries to be more complex and include components to help avoid these damaging conditions. In fact, this is the primary purpose of the BMS, which means a battery management system.
So why a BMS is Important? Battery management systems are critical in protecting the battery’s health and longevity but even more important from a safety perspective. The liquid electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries is highly flammable.So, these batteries need to be operating optimally and within safety limits at all times to prevent a fire.
A good quality BMS can keep you and your family safe at the time you use a battery. Whether you use our portable power station frequently or not we can avoid safety accidents effectively.
