Research on Thermal Management System for the Vehicle Application of Lithium-Ion Power Batteries
Thermal management technique is one of the key techniques for the vehicle application of lithium-ion power batteries. Based on the analysis of thermal characteristics of the lithium-ion power batteries, the establishment of thermal model and numerical simulation for the lithium-ion power batteries were discussed. Finally, a procedure for designing battery thermal management system (BTMS) was proposed, and the key techniques during designing a BTMS were studied, including selection of heat transfer medium, design of cooling/heating structure and so on. This research provides a technique support for designing a good and effective BTMS, as well as improving the working performance and security of the lithium-ion power batteries and the electric vehicles.
