How often should I check my cells (or my battery pack)?

Check_cells

The answer depends on the type of application. See some examples.

1. Simple installations

Simple installations with one battery (12V) or with just a few cells do not need any special inspections. If you have a SMB to handle the protection of the pack, you can just monitor the voltage level. This kind of pack should be inspected once or two times in a year. Or perhaps each time after a longer pause in usage.  Note: do not forget to disconnect all electronics if not using the pack.  The pack should have a dual protection, as explained here.

 

2. Advanced installations

More advanced installations (typically with 8 cells and more) should be monitored regularly. It is recommended that the inspection of the pack is performed in these intervals (ie, after number of discharge / charge cycles):

BMS123 Smart By Pass Voltage Settings

The BMS123 Smart supports both LFP (3.2V) technology and Li-Ion (3.7V) technology. The voltage of the cells is determined by the V-Bypass setting. The value between 3.4V and 3.7V is for the LFP cells. The values for the 4.0V to 4.3V are for the Li-Ion cells

Determining the number of cells for a battery pack

Question:  I need a 100V DC pack. How many cells do I need (for LFP or for LTO)?

Answer: The above table shows the various configurations of the number of the cells and the voltage levels that will be reached with the configuration.

For a 100V pack, the typical installation will be based on serial connection of 32 cells of LFP or 40 cells of the LTO technology

Determining the size of cells based on current and operation time

FAQ: Determining the size of cells based on current and operation time

Question:  I need a battery pack to supply 60 Amp continuously for 8 hours. What size of the battery do you recommend?

Answer: The above table shows the size of the battery packs (in Ah) based on the 100% DOD (depth of discharge) and 80% DOD. 

The 80% DOD cycle is typically used according to the specification of the manufacturer to reach the optimal life span (cycle life) of the battery pack.

For a pack running for 8 hours at 60 Amp, at 80% DOD, the capacity of the cells should be at least 600Ah.  

Tip: you can assemble the 600Ah cell using the 3x200Ah or 2x300Ah single cells in parallel

Multiple terminals of the high power cells

The large capacity Winston cells 700AH, 1000AH are equipped with multiple terminals. All terminals are mutually connected and there is no difference between them.

The terminals of the small cells like 40AH, 60AH, 100AH, 160AH can be used for continuous loads with rating up to 100 Amp currents.  The larger terminals of the 200AH cells to 400AH cells can withstand some 300 to 400 Amp currents. 

Please note that for high power applications with currents above 100Amp (continuous) the cabling and connector mounting must be realized in a very precise way with corresponding load rating.  

For high power applications, with continuous load demands, it is recommended to use multiple terminals. This is the purpose of the multiple terminals on the large 700AH and 1000AH cells. 

In simple words: if you have continuous power rating more than 100 Amp, we always suggest using the multiple terminals.

Warning of the Internet Frauds

We kindly remind the customers of the need to be very careful about some types of internet frauds related to payments and refunds.

In recent months GWL/Power has experienced some kind of attacks. Some hackers pretended to be the sales person of GWL and asked the customer to change the payment information to another account.   The hackers compromised the email account and sent faked emails and created faked modified order confirmations with a fake bank account.

We kindly ask all of our customers to take note of these illegal activities.   In case there is any change in payment details, it is always better to wait, resend the copy to more employees of GWL/Power and verify by phone, Skype or some other channels.

When making the payment, always verify the payment details as published on our web pages.
