Battery energy storage systems are now playing an integral role in the energy transition. This means it's more important than ever to gauge their performance and understand how to improve it to ensure that revenue targets can be achieved. However, this isn’t easy as a lot can go wrong. While there are many different root causes of poor availability or downtime, cell imbalances are one of the main ones. Identifying and solving problems with cell imbalances can go a long way in ensuring BESS safety and availability. In this whitepaper, we discuss the challenge of cell imbalances and how battery analytics can help to overcome it.
