Table of Contents

Chapter 1. Current Research on Power Battery Thermal Management
Since the twenty-first century, with the rapid social and technological progress, issues of energy and environment have become increasingly prominent. With the continuous increase of car parc, vehicle emissions and corresponding energy consumption have gradually become part of the environment and energy issues that cannot be ignored. Battery electric vehicles are considered among the most suitable and promising vehicles for the future society because of their advantages of zero emission, zero pollution and low noise.

Chapter 3. Electrothermal Coupling Modeling of Lithium-ion Batteries
When designing a thermal management system of power batteries, it is often necessary to establish a thermal model of power batteries to simulate and analyze the changes of battery temperature. The calculation of heat generation of lithium-ion batteries is related to the accuracy of the battery thermal model, and it is difficult to measure it accurately in real time during the charge and discharge of the batteries at present.
