Electro-Thermal Modeling to Improve Battery Design: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Operating temperature greatly affects the performance and life of batteries in electric and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Increased attention is necessary to battery thermal management. Electrochemical models and finite element analysis tools are available for predicting the thermal performance of batteries, but each has limitations. This study describes an electro-thermal finite elementapproach that predicts the thermal performance of a battery cell or module with realistic geometry.
