The EV project powering next-gen battery systems

The EV project powering next-gen battery systems
As the automotive industry seeks to electrify its product ranges, the thermal management of high capacity batteries used for EVs is proving a significant challenge. The performance and efficiency of battery cells can deteriorate - and their ageing can be accelerated - if operating temperatures exceed the upper or lower limits of a comparatively narrow range. In extreme cases, exceeding upper operating limits can risk thermal runaway of cells, leading to catastrophic failure and potentially, fire.
