Battery Thermal Management in Electric Vehicles - White Paper
Advanced numerical simulation helps accelerate the development of safe, long-lasting and cost-effective batteries for electric vehicles. In the wake of growing concerns over petroleum supplies and air pollution, electric vehicles (EVs) — including hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) — are being developed and refined as cost effective, reliable and safe alternatives to conventional gasoline and diesel engines. The race is on to design electric batteries as the power source for this new class of vehicles. Competition is intense and the stakes are high. Organizations that succeed in bringing cost-effective, long-lasting batteries to market first are in a strong position to dominate the future automotive industry, not to mention reap a sizeable share of profits.
