Thermal Management for Batteries: From Basic Design to Advanced Simulation and Management Methods presents a comprehensive examination of the various conventional and emerging technologies used for thermal management of batteries and electronics. With an emphasis on advanced nanofluids, the book provides guidance on advanced techniques at the component and system level for both active and passive technology. Sections discuss advanced battery technologies and address the design and performance optimization of battery thermal management systems, discuss the design selection of various thermal management systems and parameters selection for different configurations, and more.
Advanced techniques such as heat pipes, phase change materials, nanofluids, novel heat sinks, and two phase flow loops are also examined in detail. Presenting the fundamentals through to the latest developments alongside step-by-step guidance, mathematical models, schematic diagrams, and experimental data, this book is an invaluable and comprehensive reference for graduates, researchers, and practicing engineers working in the field of battery thermal management.
