The performance of a battery pack, composed of multiple connected cells, can be increased with the additional of a charge balancing system. This work explores the dynamic performance of charge balancing systems and how their ability to equilibrate the state of charge depends on the design of the underlying charge balancing network. The performance of the charge balancing system is shown through simulation studies to be related to the properties of the underlying graph of the balancing connections.
