Webinar: Battery Management System Impacts on Energy Storage
Battery management systems impact the utility, effectiveness, and life of an energy storage system. Passive balancing is less expensive than active balancing, but weaker cells or modules may need to be replaced near the end of the ESS’s lifespan. Active balancing transfers energy from stronger to weaker cells, but at a higher system cost and design complexity.
System down time is associated with both approaches and carries such a high opportunity cost that innovations in this area may be of greater importance than the type of balancing being employed.
Nuvation Energy CEO Michael Worry explores the current state of the art in battery cell balancing, and how BMS innovations will impact the future of stationary energy storage.
This webinar will focus on the following key topics:
- A stationary ESS orientation on battery management
- Understanding balancing-related down time
- Comparing active and passive balancing
- Innovations in battery management
Battery Management for Large-Scale Energy Storage (Part 1)
In Part 1 of 4 we will discuss the role of the battery management system in the energy storage system, compare battery monitoring to battery management, and look at how…
