The board layout for the 160ah Thundersky/Sky Energy lithium cell BMS is finished. I’d like to scale it down to also fit the 90-100ah cells, but that takes another board layout session since the 160ah cells are so large compared to the 90-100ah cells. For now getting the thermal paths, thermal cycling, and basic operation tested is a higher priority. Making a board that will fit both the 90-100ah and 160ah cells would be the next task. At this point it’s setup to bypass 3 amps. 5+ amps is possible.
The BMS will control the charger output as well as the motor control if any of the set points are hit. I’ll get the BMS to Dolphin interface board going as well.
