Power Electronics and Battery Cooling Methods

Research output: Contribution to specialist/vulgarizing publicationBlogVulgarizing

Abstract

The global promotion of electric vehicles (EVs) through various incentives has led to a significant increase in their sales. The prolonged charging duration remains a significant hindrance to the widespread adoption of these vehicles and the broader electrification of transportation. While DC-fast chargers have the potential to significantly reduce charging time, they also result in high power demands that the grid and hence may require local battery energy storage systems (BESS) for peak shaving applications. A high power demand also creates high losses and cooling methods play an important role in overall efficiency, sound pollution, system size, reliability, and lifetime of the system.
