In this final installment of the series we will put State of Charge (SoC) and Depth of Discharge (DoD) under the microscope. We'll also look at lead-acid battery management, and explore the concept of optimizing for cycle-count vs duration.
In part 3 we explore the difference between configuring a BMS for battery-level vs system-level operating parameters. We explain cell balancing, and put a lense on communications between the BMS and other controllers in the ESS.
In part 4 we discuss the role of the battery management system in preventing thermal runaway. We'll also explore the risks posed by undetected sense wire connection problems, and share a tip on how to reduce the risk of fused contactors.
Iron Edison selected Nuvation Energy’s low-voltage BMS for use in their lithium iron phosphate battery system for residential solar energy storage. Iron Edison customers range from urban homeowners to people who live fully off-grid.
