1. A traction battery management system, comprising:

  • detecting means for detecting battery conditions of a traction battery composed of a plurality of batteries and mounted on an electric vehicle;

    calculating means for calculating battery charge and discharge conditions of the traction battery on the basis of the detected battery conditions; and

    means for equalizing charging the traction battery on the basis of the calculated battery charge and discharge conditions, in such charging characteristics that charge current is relatively smaller and charge time is relatively longer, as compared with those in an ordinary battery charge, continuously after the ordinary battery charge.
