Briefly describe the design of lithium battery BMS protection method

All lithium battery protection solutions take the lithium battery BMS protection board as the carrier and the protection circuit as the manifestation. The protection circuit is usually composed of a protection IC and two power MOSFETs. The protection IC is responsible for monitoring relevant parameters, and the MOSFET is responsible for implementing power protection.

In the design of lithium battery protection scheme, the following six purposes must be achieved:

  1. High precision of overcharge protection: the safety is taken into account when the battery is fully charged. The current accuracy is 25mV, which needs to be further improved;
  2. Reduce the power consumption of the protection IC: when the MOSFET is turned off, the battery itself still has self-discharge and the current consumption of the protection IC. It is necessary to minimize the current consumption of the protection IC as much as possible;
  3. Over-current/short-circuit protection requires low detection voltage and high precision. During overcurrent/short circuit, the Rds(on) of the MOSFET is used as the inductive impedance to monitor the voltage drop process. If the voltage at this time is higher than the current detection voltage, the discharge will stop. Therefore, the impedance value should be kept as low as possible. About 20mΩ~30mΩ;
  4. High voltage resistance: when charging, there will be a high voltage momentarily when the battery pack is connected to the charger;
  5. Low battery power consumption: The lithium battery current in the protection state must be less than 0.1μA;
  6. Zero volt rechargeable: Some batteries have been discharged for too long or other abnormal reasons, causing the voltage to drop to zero volts, so the protection IC needs to be rechargeable at zero volts.

Understanding AGM Batteries vs Deep Cycle Batteries

Among the deep cycle batteries, rechargeable lead-acid batteries come in many types and are often used to start the vehicle and operate as an engine, as well as for emergency lighting. AGM batteries have been around since the 1980s, and perhaps most people don’t know what AGM stands for. In this issue, we will discuss what is special about AGM batteries and how to use our AGM batteries reasonably!

What does DOD stand for in a battery?

As a battery pack that stores electricity, it can provide power sources for a variety of needs, including solar energy, wind energy, powered cars, ships, drones, etc. When we buy batteries from merchants, we often encounter 80% DOD or 100% DOD marks, so what effect does it have on the batteries we use?
