Kia Niro: High Voltage Battery Control System / Description and operation

Description

The high voltage battery system consists of the BMS ECU (Battery Management System ECU), Power Relay Assembly (PRA), safety plug, battery temperature sensor, and battery ambient sensor. Especially the BMS ECU controls SOC (State Of Charge), power, cell balancing, cooling and troubleshooting of the high voltage battery system.

The PRA includes main relays (positive, negative), pre-charge relay, pre-charge resistor and battery current sensor.

[Main Functionalities]

Item
Functionality
SOC control

Optimize SOC by using voltage, current, temperature of the high voltage battery

Power control

Predict available battery power, prevent from over-charging or discharging, improve durability and maximize charging/discharging energy by calculating optimum charging & discharging energy in accordance with the vehicle state

Power Relay control

Supply or shut off the battery power during IG ON/OFF

Prevent accident from high voltage system failure

Cooling System control

Maintain the optimum temperature by variating and controlling the cooling fan speed based on the maximum system temperature and deviation between battery modules

Troubleshooting

Diagnose system fault

Limit battery power in various fail-safe level

Control power relays in case of system trouble
