Thermal Management of Battery Systems will Remain Essential.
The creation of power creates heat. Therefore, battery systems will need cooling systems. In addition, regardless of the type of battery to date, batteries need heat to protect them from cold temperatures.
Interior cabins also need thermal management that often can be supplied by the high voltage and current battery systems that run the motors and drive trains. Heat-pumps, PTC heater, and Peltier thermoelectric cooling systems run on conventional voltages will remain necessary for creature comforts.
Why Do You Need BTMS for Electrical Vehicles? The BTMS consists of more components than just the batteries. In most EVs there is an inverter for home charging that changes AC to DC. There is also an inverter for the output to the drive motor. There are temperature controls, heater, cooling devices, and fans. All of these components are part of a BTMS. Battery thermal management systems for electrical vehicles is a new concept for automotive engineers and consumers. Little is understood about requirements for maintaining optimal temperatures for efficient charging and operation of large battery packs required for electrical...
