Phase Change Materials for Battery Thermal Management System

Share this:
Published: 9 Jun 2017

This issue of High-Tech Materials TOE profiles material innovations that improve battery thermal management system by using phase change material. Conventional lithium-ion batteries release high amounts of heat during charge-discharge cycle. However, this battery has very small safe operation temperature windows, which means that beyond this temperature, thermal runaway might happen and lead to explosion in the battery. Innovations profiled in this issue try to address this problem by utilizing phase change material as a heat absorbent and a cheaper yet simple passive thermal management system. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Battery energy management system, phase change material, paraffin, latent heat
