Within the realm of Motorsport, we specialize in producing and developing electrical, electromechanical, and hydraulic products and components. We are committed to providing our clients with cutting-edge engineering solutions that offer exceptional value. Initially rooted in traditional motorsports products, our expertise has grown to encompass the electric and hybrid vehicle sectors.
One of the pivotal driving forces propelling advancements in the automotive industry is electrification. The importance of effective thermal management has grown significantly due to the demand for rapid charging capabilities. Consequently, it’s essential to maintain the battery temperature within an even narrower range than required for standard operation to maximize the utilization of available charging power. This necessitates either heating or cooling the battery as needed. The faster the cells are charged, the more critical thermal management becomes. If charging powers exceeding 350 kW become commonplace, novel thermal management strategies may become essential.
Hence, the thermal management system in BEVs assumes a pivotal role. Its primary responsibility is to maintain the temperature of the electric motor, power electronics, and battery within an optimal range while ensuring passenger comfort within the vehicle. Failure of the thermal management system can result in demagnetization of magnets, accelerated aging of insulation materials, decreased efficiency, shortened lifespan, and, in extreme cases, even motor burnout. Additionally, an efficient thermal management system enhances the longevity of battery cells and serves as a vital safety feature to prevent thermal runaway.
