Drawing on over 20 years’ of experience, the MOSFET and GaN FET Application Handbook: A Power Design Engineer’s Guide brings together a comprehensive set of learning and reference materials relating to the use of MOSFETs and GaN FETs in real world systems.
48 V Battery Management System (BMS)
48 V batteries tend to be created using Li-ion multi-cell battery packs suing 8-16 cells. From a safety perspective, but also to ensure the best efficiency and longest battery life these battery packs need to be carefully monitored and controlled. This requires accurate voltage, temperature and current as well as battery state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH) monitoring. In addition for most efficient battery use, good cell balancing and battery optimization is a must.
