When should the Bms run? Charging, driving, sitting, all the time? Thanks.
One should always have a battery MONITORING system, where pack voltages are measured and input/output can be cut-off in the event of an emergency(contactor control). Balancing isn't really necessary or possible unless slow charging, and a well made "healthy" pack should rarely need it.
