The PowerShield 8 system detects thermal runaway by monitoring the temperature difference between the individual batteries and the ambient. When thermal runaway is detected, PowerShield 8 raises an alarm and starts a countdown timer. If no action is taken during the countdown period, PowerShield 8 sends a control signal. Depending on the installed equipment, a battery string breaker may be tripped or the charger directed to step down its voltage, stopping thermal runaway.
