Learn the difference between battery management systems (BMS) and battery analytics. Both help to improve safety and performance, and to extend battery lifetime. So do battery operators need a battery intelligence solution if there’s already a BMS?
There’s no doubt BMSs are essential to monitor battery operation of individual systems, but who or what is monitoring all the BMSs? They can present a kind of “black box” where reasons for a decrease in capacity or an increase in fire risk aren’t transparent. Particularly with a diversified supplier portfolio, each BMS presents its own nuances and state estimations can vary significantly, creating complexity for energy system owners, operators, and investors.
A battery intelligence solution covers all battery systems, painting the bigger asset management picture and delivering transparency where the BMSs leave off. Aside from pro-active notifications about under-performance,end-of-life, or increased failure risk, the advanced insights possible through big data analyses increase the reliability and ROI of battery assets, and even facilitate tailored insurance conditions.
Battery energy storage needs both battery management systems and battery intelligence.
