Abstract

Battery thermal management is an important aspect of battery life. This research delves into the use of a cooling system for lithium-ion batteries specifically employing a channel plate with different configurations of channels and two types of cooling fluids water and ethylene glycol. The fluid dynamic (CFD) method is utilized to analyze the cooling performance. The main objective is to examine how effectively water and ethylene glycol can maintain the battery temperature below its operating threshold using the mini channel plate design. Although there is a slight impact on cooling, increasing the number of channels has a significant effect of a 25% reduction in pressure drop. Furthermore, enhancing the inlet mass flow rate of both water and ethylene glycol cooling fluids results in improved cooling capability. It is also observed from the result that ethylene glycol outperforms water in terms of cooling performance
