One of the most important challenges in the development of electric drives is the thermal management of batteries. It is crucial for:

  • the range of the vehicle
  • the service life of the batteries
  • fast charging

Columbia-Staver Design Flexibility

 Because of the variety of cell shapes and more importantly the different temperature distributions within the cells, thermal management solutions need to be flexible.

Columbia-Staver has developed a technology that can not only adapt to the cell and module shape but can also target the coolant directly at the cell’s hot spot.

Lightweight aluminium Cold Plates can be custom-sized to match the selected cells and the liquid flow path customised for optimum cooling of the cell’s hot spots.

 

Inter-leaved system for the cooling of pouch cells.

Coolant is targeted at the cell hot spots between the terminals.

Coolant is fed from and returned to the cooler by tubes and distributed within the Module by manifold runners.

 

 

 

Inter-leaved system for the cooling of prismatic cells.

Coolant is targeted at the cell hot spots between the terminals.

Coolant is fed from and returned to the cooler by tubes.

 

 

System designed for cooling LTO cylindrical cells. Cells are inter-leaved with cold plates and coolant is targeted at the hot spot between the terminals. System inter-connection is via tubes.

 

 

 

Cylindrical cell cooling solution. The cell’s hot spot is in direct contact with the cold plate.
