A Beginner's Guide to BMS

Are you curious about the wizardry that keeps your POWERWIN 12.8V 200Ah LiFePO4 battery performing its daily miracles? Well, dear battery enthusiast, it's time to unravel the mystery of the Battery Management System (BMS) – the unsung hero behind the scenes.


What is BMS, Anyway?

Think of BMS as the wise guardian of your battery realm. Its job is to ensure your 12.8V 200Ah LiFePO4 battery lives a long and prosperous life. BMS monitors, protects, and harmonizes the delicate dance of electrons within your battery.


A Real-Life Example

Imagine your battery as a bustling city, and BMS as the diligent city planner. Here's a simple breakdown of what BMS does:


  1. Voltage Supervision:

BMS keeps an eagle eye on the voltage levels within your battery. It's like a superhero ensuring everyone stays in their power lanes. If voltage levels go too high or too low, BMS steps in to save the day, preventing potential disasters.


  1. Current Management:

Picture BMS as a traffic controller regulating the flow of current in and out of your battery. It prevents overcrowding (overcharging) and ensures a smooth commute for your precious electrons. Much like a traffic controller avoids gridlock on the streets, BMS prevents energy congestion within your battery. It meticulously manages the influx and outflow of electrons, preventing overcharging, which is akin to preventing a traffic jam in your battery city. By doing so, BMS safeguards against potential hazards, so that the longevity and well-being of each cell in your energy community.


  1. Temperature Control:

Just like your favorite cozy sweater in winter, BMS ensures your battery stays at the right temperature. It prevents overheating, preserving the health and happiness of your battery citizens. For our 12.8V 200Ah LiFePO4 battery, as an example. Usually BMS triggers when battery temperature reached over 45℃ in charge or 60℃ in discharge. The temperature detection probe detects that the resistance values of high temperature and low temperature are different.


  1. Balancing Act:

BMS is the ultimate equality advocate within your battery community. It ensures all cells are treated fairly, preventing some cells from feeling neglected (over-discharging) or overworked (overcharging).
