The alerts Wisebatt provides in the compiler fall into 2 categories : errors and warnings. Errors are so serious that they will block simulation, meaning that you will have to solve them to go further in your design. Warnings will not block the simulation, but might trigger estimation issues. 

Understanding Schematics Errors

"There is no connected power source in the schematic"

  • No primary or secondary battery are present on the schematic.
  • If you put a battery on the schematics, it might not be connected to your components. 

To solve this issue find a battery in the library and connect it to the components.

"There is no power connection in the schematics"

A power connection might be missing between a power source and a component. Draw the missing connection between the power source and the component.

"The schematic has different types of batteries"

You should not have different types of batteries in your schematics. It is generally not recommended to meet different battery tech in the same device because different chemistries and specifications can generate an unexpected behavior

Change the batteries so that there is only one type of battery.

"The schematic has a battery short circuit"

You probably connected the battery in the wrong way. Check if your battery doesn’t have a short circuit.

"The battery pack is not well formed"

Wisebatt only supports series batteries configurations. So parallel configurations will not function in Wisebatt. Check if your battery pack is joined as series.

"The schematic has no processing component"

There should be one microcontroller on your schematics. Search for and add an MCU in the design space, connect it to power sources and components.

"The schematic has more than one processing component"

There should not be more than one microcontroller on your schematics. Maybe you put more than one MCU. Just keep the main MCU and erase the other ones.

Understanding Schematics Warnings

"One or several batteries are not connected"

You have a battery in the schematics, but it is not connected to any component. Search for a battery that has no connection in the design space. Connect it to other components or a regulator or delete it.

"Component [Name] is not powered"

This component has no power connection from a battery. Draw a power connection from a battery.

"Voltage is lower than required for the connection between [Component] and [Component]"

See the page “How to select the right components for your device”. Change the component or the power source so that it fits the voltage requirement.

"Voltage is higher than required for the connection between [Component] and [Component]"

See the page “How to select the right components for your device”. Change the component or the power source so that it fits the voltage requirement.
