Battery Cooling Options

Forced Air Cooling

There are many battery cooling options, which is better or best depends on the cell selection and application. There is no right and wrong. However, let’s look at them and at a first attempt list of advantages and disadvantages. Note: all of the images show a section through cylindrical cells, but each of these cooling … Read more

Specific Heat Capacity of Lithium Ion Cells

The specific heat capacity of lithium ion cells is a key parameter to understanding the thermal behaviour. From literature we see the specific heat capacity ranges between 800 and 1100 J/kg.K Heat capacity is a measurable physical quantity equal to the ratio of the heat added to an object to the resulting temperature change. Specific … Read more
