Cells are the main component of a battery pack.
They provide the primary power source. Cells connected in series can add
the voltage of a battery pack. The voltage of a battery pack is the voltage
of single cell multiplied by the series cells’ number. Battery capacity
can be increased throught adding more parallel cells. The capacity of
a battery pack is the capacity of the individual chain multiplied by the
number of parallel chains.
For applications which require higher voltage
and more capacity than a single cell can deliver, some custom battery
packs are assembled with both series cells and parallel cells so that
both the voltage and amp hour capacity are increased.
To design a multi-cell battery pack it is critical
to first calculate the system requirements for voltage, capacity and discharging
rate based on a specific cell’s parameters. The operating voltage
range of an application system will determine the number of series cells
required in a battery pack. A battery pack’s capacity and discharging
rate will determine the number of parallel cells required.
Moreover, cells will determine the ultimate
shape and dimensions of a multi-cell pack. Arrangement of cells, circuitry,
connections and terminals should be carefully considered to fit into the
physical space available.
Based on customer's requirements, CREUP can
not only design and produce custom cells but build sophisticated
battery packs to deliver the necessary power for the customer's special
