Book Description

1 April 2013 Artech House Power Engineering
The introduction of Li-ion batteries in 1991 created a tremendous change in the handheld devices landscape. Since then, the energy stored and put to use in palm-sized electronic devices has quadrupled. Devices are continuously getting more power hungry, outpacing battery development. Written by leading engineers in the field, this cutting-edge resource helps professionals overcome this challenge, offering them an insightful overview and in-depth guide to the many varied areas of battery power management for portable devices. Engineers may find the latest details on optimizing charging circuits, developing battery gauges that provide the longest possible run-time while ensuring data protection, and utilizing safety circuits that provide multiple independent levels of protection for highly energetic batteries. This unique book features detailed design examples of whole systems, providing practitioners with the real-world perspective needed to put this knowledge into practice. Readers learn how to perfect their designs, helping to ensure the development of devices that will succeed in the fast-growing portable device marketplace. It is suitable for electrical and power engineers whose work involves the development of portable, industrial, medical, or military devices.

Are you an engineer or a curious do-it-yourself enthusiast? If you are, then this book is for you. Authors Yevgen Barsukov and Jinrong Qian, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that aims to make it clear that batteries and battery management electronics that are used, should be able to operate in the most efficient and safest way.

Authors Barsukova and Qian, begin by summarizing the best handling practices based on a particular chemistry for the most common rechargeable battery types in order to ensure the best longevity of the battery; as well as, adequate safety of the device. Next, the authors discuss battery charging algorithms, battery charging system topologies, design considerations, the main battery charger applications, and the popular battery charger ICs.
Then, they show you how to accomplish a remodeling of battery designers’ thinking; and, offer a practical solution to all of the challenges that arise from highly energetic mobile power sources. In addition, the authors discuss why when multiple cells are connected in series, the cell voltage is not always equal to the pack voltage divided by the number of cells. They continue by describing battery fuel gauging, which is the expression that everyone is using to describe what this little chip inside the battery is doing. The authors then briefly analyze the system-level ESD, EMI minimization, and specific design considerations for each piece of the end equipment. Finally, the authors apply the principles of the different ingredients of a successful battery-operated system to specific portable systems to demonstrate them in action; and, to provide you with an actionable reference template that you can use as a starting point for your own development efforts for such systems or expand to other systems with similar properties.

This most excellent book covers rechargeable battery fundamentals, explaining how any battery operates and describing the common factors to consider when choosing a battery. Furthermore, this great book explains the how and why of battery management systems; and, provides would-be designers of battery management systems and chargers with enough information to be successful. Finally, the book combines all of the various pieces of knowledge about battery management, and provides examples of complete battery-operated systems that can be cut-and-pasted into your designs.

I use this book both for advanced technical training, as well as training people who are new to the battery power management industry. It has a very comprehensive approach and covers topics ranging from battery chemistry fundamentals, battery safety, system considerations, to design examples. I have bought a few extra copies to share with colleagues.
