Numerical Simulation of Battery Cooling Systems in Electric Vehicles
As electric vehicles are working on stored energy in batteries or cells. These units needs to be regulated by cool down or heat up to perform utmost and to ensure individual cell life. Battery cooling systems are installed on vehicles to regulate the temperature around these packs. To ensure maximum performance of these units, numerical simulation is performed. Optimization (includes study of cover design, number of openings, area & position of openings around the cover in which unit is mounted) of flow rate as well as flow path into battery cooling systems is carried out. This study is carried to design a stable unit.
