Within an electric vehicle (EV) battery system, the battery management system (BMS) is the electronic system that manages the battery pack and the cells. The BMS is critical for optimum battery performance and safety, meaning it must operate with a high degree of accuracy and reliability. It must be robust enough to withstand the environment it occupies yet remain compact and lightweight while limiting any additional bulk to the overall battery pack. This 60-minute Webinar will explore the latest trends, challenges, and solutions in BMS and identify key requirements needed for a highly integrated and optimized BMS.
- The role of a BMS in an EV and the critical functions and features it provides
- The challenges faced when developing a successful system
- Connector platform options for BMS applications that address the latest trends and challenges on EVs related to reliability and robustness
An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentations.
