An on-line battery management and monitoring system and method for monitoring a plurality of battery cells identifies and computes individual cell and battery bank operating parameters. The system comprises a central monitoring station to which a plurality of controllers is connected, each controller having a plurality of battery cells which it monitors. Features of the invention include the following: display of measurement and alarm condition data for each of the battery cells connected to each of the controllers; color-coded display of data for a battery cell, the display color being dependent upon the condition of the battery; performance of data analysis and initiation of necessary maintenance requests; operation of the controllers in an automatic local mode, automatic remote mode, or maintenance mode; provision for periodic calls from the controllers to the central monitoring station; and generation of red alarm calls, yellow alarm calls, downscale alarm calls, and diagnostic calls between the central monitoring station and the controllers.
