Course Overview

Lithium-ion batteries dominate the electric vehicle industry, and are the most commonly used source of energy for EVs and HEVs. Electric vehicles are integrated with a battery thermal management system (BTMS) to ensure the lithium ion battery pack is operating within the optimal temperature range to yield maximum performance. 

This course is designed to teach you about the transfer of heat, fluid, and energy in an EV battery system. You will also understand the importance and working of a BTMS in the cooling of an EV battery pack. By using software tools such as Ansys Fluent, MATLAB, and Simulink, you will get to simulate and assess the performance of a BTMS across different operating conditions.
