Advanced Battery Systems
In advanced battery systems, the quality of the power electronics helps determine the quality of the final product, its level of functionality, and its reliability. In such advanced electronics, if the safety systems do not work quickly and reliably, the entire battery system can suffer a catastrophic failure that could seriously impact the product and its user.
Almost every advanced application space currently under development requires next-generation battery systems. Smart grid-level energy systems need more power storage just as much as advanced electric vehicles (EVs) do and those needs are connected. Each space has its own requirements but the core need of safe, reliable, and economical energy storage is fundamental across every application.
In life-critical application areas, such as automotive and industrial safety, the importance of fail-safe sub-systems is paramount. The battery system in an EV needs to be safe. There is a considerable amount of energy in a modern battery, and catastrophic failure can lead to thermal runaway – or fire.
The role of fuses
Fuses, or similar devices, are required circuit-protection components that protect the system in the event of a short circuit by breaking the line under specific conditions. There are many types of fuses, but the primary element in each is a piece of engineered conductor, usually metal, rated to fail (melt) in a controlled manner under the raised line temperature conditions from a short circuit. This destructive protection method ensures the safety of the circuit by completely severing the power source.
This burn-out response has some drawbacks however, most notably that a power circuit under load will not necessarily have a consistent flow of current. In designs requiring pulses of high power, the wide operating range of current drives the use of a higher current fuse to avoid nuisance tripping, but this leaves the system more vulnerable to overheating and thermal issues. That, and the non-reversible aspect of fuses, has led to the increasing use of electromechanical safety devices like circuit breakers, which can be reset as they do not rely on destructive elements to function.
