Efficient Thermal Management

High power energy storage systems are crucial for the new age of electric vehicles. Lithium-ion batteries have the advantage of high energy density, good aging characteristics and high efficiency, but at the same time the thermal range of operation is limited. At temperatures below 0 °C, the power capacity of the lithium battery is reduced up to 70 % and temperatures of more than 40 °C could generate an irreversible damage (over 70 °C also thermal runaway may occur). Hence an efficient and accurate thermal management is necessary.
