Thermal Management and Performance Characteristic of Electric Vehicle 2020-28-0022

Thermal Management System is one of key parallel branch for internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle over 4 decades as it ensures performance of power train/engine or after treatment system or HVAC (Climate control). In automotive industry, Range Anxiety and safety of Electric Vehicle (EV) are the hot topic of discussion. This paper is dealing with some importance aspects of thermal management system and their link with the performance/Safety Parameter of Electric vehicle. Battery Cooling or Battery thermal management System (BTMS or BCS) and Traction cooling system (TCS) are coupled with near conventional HVAC circuit. BTMS plays important role to ensure performance of Li-ion Battery pack which is indirectly related with Range and safety of electric vehicle. Similar, other 2 Cooling circuit has major role to ensure vehicle performance and comfort. Here, Thermal management system become utmost important to overcome the challenge of range and safety concern of EV along with many other factors. Also, Thermal management system sited in key research arena along with battery technology for Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicle.
