Battery Thermal Management

Improving performance on electric and hybrid vehicles.

More Endurance Cell By Cell

The growing popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles can deliver significantly higher fuel efficiency over traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, and due to the lower carbon dioxide emissions, these vehicles can dramatically benefit the environment. The growing popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles have catapulted the vehicle battery to take center stage.

High demands are being placed on the vehicle battery, and the most crucial factors are the battery’s range and endurance. Therefore, an increasing focus is on thermal management as it largely contributes to the battery’s performance.

Since temperature affects the life of the battery, we have developed a solution that improves the performance of electric and hybrid batteries using an innovative air conditioning concept. This has resulted in a decisive increase in durability by avoiding critical temperature ranges that would otherwise accelerate the aging process of the battery.
