4.3. BMS Safety Recommendations
4.3.1. Recommendations for BMS Structure
- A non-flammable and solid barrier should be used between the two electrodes of batteries. The barrier must be made of insulation material, and electrodes should never come into contact with each other, even if an accident occurs. The barrier ensures the internal short circuit of batteries.
- Since battery is one of the inputs of BMS, flame retardants can be used in the electrolytes of batteries to prevent fire. The flashpoint of retardants must be higher than the electrolytes . However, measures should be taken to prevent battery performance and the electrochemical reactor from being hindered.
- In a battery, the combustion process includes a series of chemical reactions, which may cause a fire. To prevent this, fuel, oxidizer, and control unit must be chosen in such a way that the battery is not exposed to fire or any abnormality.
4.3.2. Recommendations for BMS Parameters
- Two well-known safety strategies are available in the lithium battery: current interrupt devices (CID) and positive temperature coefficient (PTC). The PTC protects batteries from an external short circuit. In abnormal cases, the PTC will heat itself, increase its resistance, and block the excess current. The CID prevents current flow in an abnormal condition, which may cause gas generation . It is highly recommended to implement these techniques for ensuring BMS reliability.
- A new solvent with a higher flash point than the existing solvent is recommended to use in batteries for fire resistance. As battery is a part of the BMS, the development of a new solvent will reduce the probability of a BMS fire.
4.3.3. Recommendations for BMS Integration
- All BMS units must be separated physically so that any abnormal issue within a BMS unit will not spread to other units.
- There should be more than a minimum number of nominally identical equipment or subsystems in the fault detection, control, and communication unit of the BMS. If one component or subsystem fails, the other can perform as a backup for a random failure; this is called “fail-safe philosophy.” The “fail-safe philosophy” includes safety vents, thermal fuses, and shutdown separators. Safety vents reduce the excess pressure inside the battery and prevent the rise of battery temperatures. Fallback protection, in particular, is exceptionally vital. If the primary protection system fails, then the secondary option will retain viability to prevent further problems.
- The battery cell must not be discharged below the minimum specified SOC.
4.3.4. Recommendations for BMS Installations
- The equipment rating and marking instruction must be strictly followed. Before the battery is put into operation, the normal case, worse case, and abuse case conditions of the battery must be evaluated.
- The way BMS control unit interacts with humans should be checked for each unit of the BMS. If any modification or replacement is needed for part of the unit, an extensive investigation must be carried out to evaluate whether the existing unit is compatible with the proposed change.
- Since the manufacturer and design fault is one of the most dominant causes for BMS failure, third-party verification is recommended to ensure safety.
- If an accident occurs with a battery bank, it is recommended to remove and replace all of the battery bank and to avoid using a battery that has had contact with fire, no matter how minimal the contact.
- Different types of batteries containing liquid electrolytes should not be combined for any extended use. If two male ends become connected to each other and they come into contact with flammable material, the impact will cause a fire explosion.
- Every battery must be charged by a specifically rated charger; otherwise, there is a possibility of overheating, which will damage the battery.
- It is recommended not to place that battery storage systems in high-temperature environments.
- Safety reviews should be conducted regularly for each BMS unit and be recorded in safety review reports to assess the changes and required modifications of the BMS unit.

|Environmental Impact||Technical Efficiency Impact|
|Reduction in CO2 emissions:|
Reduction in CO2 emissions by a rate of 40% is possible when a battery is controlled by BMS to store off-peak clean electricity to serve peak demand.
|Real-Time State of Health Estimation:|
BMS enables precisely to predict the state of health (SOH) of a battery. It has positive impact on the safety and quality of the operation and performance.
