I work on a solar tracking project and in this project I have to charge my Li-Po battery to store power and use this power for supplying the system. For this problem, I searched for the li-po battery balance charging circuits and I found one. My problem is lack of time(deadline) and I couldn't be sure about this circuit's reliability. Could you give me advice or could you approve my circuit if it is proper.Li-Po battery balance charger circuit

  • \$\begingroup\$ I couldn't see the simulation results since there is no rechargable battery library to add Proteus. I set the circuit in Proteus and I couldn't be sure how can I see the output voltage for the cells. I connected a DC voltmeter and there was a +MAX sign when I start the simulation. \$\endgroup\$ – Kivanc Gultekin Jan 14 '17 at 16:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ When I look the general view of the circuit it seems okay, but I will order the components if I will be approved by a person who knows this circuit \$\endgroup\$ – Kivanc Gultekin Jan 14 '17 at 16:30
  • \$\begingroup\$ Please provide full details about the battery pack including total capacity, number of cells in series and total number of cells. Please advise what is the Vmpp and Impp of the solar panel. If I had to design a balancer that was guaranteed to work right the first time, I would use an IC from TI or Linear and use the datasheet, reference design, and app notes to guide me. \$\endgroup\$ – mkeith Jan 14 '17 at 16:48

    \$\begingroup\$ No need for a battery pack library. You can get good results using just voltage sources to see the dynamics and trip points and a gigantonormous capacitor is a good analogy to a battery. \$\endgroup\$ – winny Jan 14 '17 at 16:55
