Battery Management Systems for Large Lithium-Ion Battery Packs
Section 1.1 Addenda
When referring to Balancing, the terms "Passive" and "Active" have been interpreted differently by some, as to mean "Voltage based" (balancing only at the end of charge) and "SOC history based" (balancing all the time). Therefore, to avoid further confusion, we would like to start use different, more descriptive terms for the two balancing technologies: "dissipative balancing" and "non-dissipative balancing". Describe book/1.1 here.
