BMS

Back to Glossary

A Battery Management System (BMS) is a piece of hardware that measures the voltage, current, and temperature of each cell in the battery system. The BMS performs basic safety functions to keep battery cells within rated operating conditions. BMS are often paired with generic software algorithms to predict state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH). They are often inaccurate in any specific application and not guaranteed for accuracy.
