Abstract

Temperature and humidity level highly affect the performance, safety, and lifetime of battery cells, thus making their control a key challenge for battery integration into vehicles. Depending on cell type and intended application, a variety of thermal management systems is existent, complicating the selection and the dimensioning process. Due to a wider market penetration and a trend toward high-capacity battery packs and fast charging, thermal management will significantly gain further importance for the overall vehicle concept.
