SVD-ROM for Battery Thermal Management - Application Brief

Battery thermal management for high-power applications such as electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electrical vehicles (HEVs) is crucial to prevent thermal runaway. This application brief describes a reduced-order model (ROM), called SVD-ROM, based on singular value decomposition (SVD). This ROM provides results very similar to those from computational fl uid dynamics (CFD) under any transient power dissipation. The ROM runs orders of magnitude faster than the original CFD model.
