Energy storage systems

Enhance the performance of renewable energy storage systems with our battery-management and power-conversion technology

Battery storage systems store renewable energy and provide access when supplies are limited. On-demand access to these energy reserves can reduce energy costs and improve utilization. By enabling "peak shaving" through energy storage, our products for battery management, high-voltage power conversion and grid connectivity can make grid systems more resilient during peak demand periods.

Why choose TI for your energy storage system designs?


Improve cost and reliability

Our high-accuracy battery-management architecture supports reliable energy storage systems up to 1,500 V  at a lower system cost.


Efficient power conversion

Reduce switching and conduction losses at the highest frequencies with TI GaN technology.


Scalable digital power control

Our real-time microctontrollers offer a wide range of digital power control capabilities and software to increase system performance, efficiency and power density.


Enhance battery safety

Components with advanced, full-scale protections and diagnostics help prevent battery thermal runaway.

Engineering efficient energy storage systems

Accurate monitoring

Battery monitoring integrated circuits (ICs) measure cell voltages, temperature and pack current; perform cell balancing; and monitor and protect cells. Accurate monitoring enables more efficient battery use, resulting in longer run times and a reduction in battery size and cost. The pack monitor measures voltage and temperature to diagnose and manage the safety of battery packs.

Our battery cell monitoring ICs work well in CAN or daisy chain-based architectures to meet your requirements.
