The course covers the various aspects related to a BMS and allows you to understand how to make choices on BMS development goals dependent on the specific need of the end application and the given battery technology
Specifically, you will learn why a BMS is needed for different battery technologies and look at several possible configurations. You will also learn about the communication means and advanced features of the BMS, which provide more information about the state of the battery system and guarantee that it is used optimally.

Course content and evaluation
Battery management systems is an online course and can be taken at the learners’ usual study location. The course consists of two modules.
- Introduction to the Battery management systems, understand the configuration
and requirements, and what is meant by functional safety.
- The concept of State of Health and State of Charge and learn what cell
balancing is, why it is needed and when it is used.
Each module includes reading materials and animations to illustrate the content. To succeed in the course and receive a Certificate of Accomplishment, you will need to complete at least 80% of the course contents.
More information about the course structure and FAQ.
This course empowers learners to:
- Explain the exact need for a BMS in a battery-supported application and list the set of functions aBMS should support
- Interpret the BMS specifications in light of the basic functionalities
- List the most important BMS components, their requirements, and their value for the system
- Explain the concept of State of Health and State of Charge
- Evaluate if a string of battery cells is balanced and what the impact is of imbalance.
This course is beneficial for battery system integrators, battery technicians and Energy Management System developers and providers.
In order to be able to follow and benefit from the course you would need to have a basic understanding of battery cells, system components, and their working principles.
Create your own blended learning path
Online training is an efficient way to secure new knowledge. But sometimes you need to go deeper and apply theory in practice order to really understand. That is why we recommend you to combine your online learning with laboratory work and practical training led by our experienced trainers at our training centre in Torslanda.
The online courses from EIT InnoEnergy and EBA can be combined with one another as well as with the regular course portfolio at Göteborgs Tekniska College and thus result in a longer learning path. Based on your needs, we will together construct a tailormade blended learning path with both online and classroom training, that will make for great results in your organisation.
Suggested blended learning path
We recommend to continue your learning path with the following courses:
European collaborations for innovation in sustainable energy
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an EU body created by the European Union to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. EIT is active in different industries, such as manufacturing, health and culture. EIT InnoEnergy is responsible for accelerating sustainable energy innovations and one of its tools for doing this is the European Battery Alliance for battery storage (EBA), that amongst other things produces training material for battery technology and electromobility.
EIT InnoEnergy and EBA work with training providers all across Europe to adjust the training to local needs. Göteborgs Tekniska College are proud to be the first Swedish college to provide the online training from EIT InnoEnergy and EBA to the Swedish market.
