Any Lithium battery experts here? My concern is that there is a lot of work and specialized chips on BMS systems that specialize in balancing battery cells for large batteries. Lets say I have a lifepo4 battery with 480 cells for 76.8V and is configured at 20p24s. Why do they configure it that way instead of lets say all 480 cells in parallel for a 3.2v and then a boost converter. I'm exaggerating here with the 3.2 volts, but why not 12v and then put a second stage for boost?
Max current draw seems to continue to increase due to new cell designs.
