Lithium-ion battery system design

  • Uwe KoehlerEmail author


The design of a battery system should ensure that an energy storage system operates efficiently, reliably, and safely during vehicle deployment for a very long period of time. Lithium-ion cells are the fundamental components of lithium-ion battery systems and they impose special requirements on battery design. Aside from electrochemical storage cells, the battery system comprises a multitude of mechanical, electrical, and electronic components with functions that need to be perfectly balanced. The electronic battery management system (BMS) not only monitors and controls the battery, it also provides data communication to the vehicle.
