What is this course about?

The Battery Management System (BMS) is the “brain” of most modern batteries, preventing overheating, overcharging, and imbalance—ensuring the battery’s longevity and safety. Understanding how each part of a battery management system works will position you to optimize your use of batteries – or even work with them professionally. Careers in BMS design and programming shape the backbone of battery safety, fostering innovation and expertise to fortify our energy infrastructure for a sustainable future.

What will you learn?

Master the intricacies of monitoring, preventing hazards, and ensuring resilient battery systems.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the role of the BMS in battery safety and performance
  • Describe the function of each aspect of a BMS:
    • Voltage and current sensors, temperature sensors
    • Cell balancing circuits, and protection circuits
    • State-of-Charge (SoC) and State-of-Health (SoH) estimation, MCU
  • List the job duties and required skills of various BMS professionals.

Who is this course for?

The course is aimed at: technicians and engineers looking for an introduction to battery management systems’ role in battery safety, especially as a first step into a career working with BMSs.
