With the growth of lithium batteries on the market, overcycling solutions can provide a second life for batteries, along with a new BMS.
Lithium is light and capacitive, but depending on the electrochemistry chosen, it can be more or less efficient, sensitive and economical. Hence the importance of choosing the right electrochemistry for its application.
Each electrochemistry has its own properties and can be used for various applications depending on various factors, such as the desired power and lifetime, but also the climate, on-board weight etc... Focus on the different electrochemicals in the world of energy storage.
A lot of product designers hesitate between a PCM (Protection Circuit Module) and a BMS (Battery Management System) in order to protect the battery pack of their devices. These 2 type of electronic boards are, however, very different in the way they work and with regard to the desired outcome.
Why do I need a BMS for my lithium battery?
Lithium batteries are very powerful, but their reactions to misuse can be dangerous. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor each electrochemical cell to prevent such cases of unauthorized use.
This monitoring work is carried out thanks to an electronic management card called BMS “Battery Management System”
