Agenda Day 2

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020

11:40 AM Battery thermal management system using an highly advanced dielectric fluid

• Improvements to the battery thermal management system have now become crucial to extend
battery lifetime and tolerate the thermal stresses during fast charge.
• An innovative thermal management system for batteries based on a newly developed, highly
advanced dielectric fluid in direct contact with the electrochemical cells is presented.
• The presentation shares our experimental and simulation test results that demonstrate the benefit
of such a solution for a 40kWh battery pack fast charged at 4C
