Valley Cottage, NY — (SBWIRE) — 09/08/2017 — Battery Management System or BMS is an electronic system primarily used for controlling and monitoring the operating state of rechargeable batteries. Automotive rechargeable batteries are characterized by fluctuating charging and discharging cycles, this in turn necessitates the requirement of battery management systems to ensure efficient working and extended lifespan of the battery. Automotive BMS measures voltage, temperature, current, impedance and other factors of the battery, processes useful information such as power delivery, operating time, recharge and discharge cycles in main control unit and transmits the information to an external interface via data transmission channels. Technological advancement in automotive industry such as development of electric/ hybrid vehicles demands efficient management systems with a capability to perform real time operation. Moreover electronic media, sophisticated security systems and other battery operated system necessitates efficient working of battery which in turn is expected to increase the adoption of automotive battery management systems.
