BMS Hardware-in-the-Loop Testing and Development

The testing of Battery Management Systems (BMS) with real Li-ion batteries can be costly and time consuming. Using a system such as A&D’s BMS Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) system will help shorten the development cycle of a BMS system. In addition to reducing the cost and time it also makes BMS testing more flexible and traceable, easier to reproduce and safer when testing beyond the normal range of battery operation.
