battery management system (BMS) has been selected by a leading global vehicle
manufacturer to equip the entirety of its B-segment, C-segment and light
commercial vehicle platforms. Initially, model years from mid-2023 will be
equipped with the new BorgWarner BMS technology, which optimises battery pack
performance, safety and life span.
been working with this prestigious manufacturer for over two decades and are
delighted to further strengthen our relationship by contributing advanced
battery management solutions for their vehicle platforms of tomorrow,” said Dr.
Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems.
“This OEM business win for our flexible BMS
technology is a step forward for BorgWarner on our pathto executingour Charging
Forward electrification strategy,” he added.
battery management system for hybrid and electric vehicles contains a master
control unit connected to multiple cell management control units. It is
designed to monitor the state of charge, health and battery temperature of each
battery cell, and also precisely measure battery pack current and voltage.
distributed cell management units also perform cell balancing, which allows a
higher state of charge to be achieved, optimizes battery lifespan and enhances
battery safety by preventing over- and under-charging. The system is suitable
for battery applications that operate up to 800 volts and also includes
contactor control and diagnostics.
compact design of the BorgWarner BMS makes a positive contribution to weight
saving and vehicle range goals. By adopting a distributed configuration, the
master and cell management controllers can be decoupled to allow optimum
flexibility in system layout and weight distribution.
electric vehicles, optimised efficiency and performance is more important than
ever. BorgWarner’s electric propulsion portfolio offers a range of solutions
and technologies, featuring modular hardware and software platforms that allow
for scalable architecture, packaging and system deployment.
