Anisotropic Thermal Conductivity Considerations for Application in Battery Thermal Management Systems
Presented by Arya Hakimian
Thermal management of battery systems, especially those in electric vehicles (EVs), has garnered a lot of attention in recent years. A key challenge in advancing battery technologies is tied to temperature increase limitations imposed on critical components which can lead to decreased performance or in some cases a complete thermal runaway event. Battery pack design and material selection are major areas of investigation for improvements and future development in this field. From a materials standpoint, thermal conductivity (k) is a key metric of consideration. Furthering this point, materials with anisotropic thermal behaviours have shown great promise in their ability to reduce thermal runaway propagation in adjacent cells. Herein we discuss characterization methods for these novel materials including application examples.
