b-PCM – Latentwärmespeicher in temperatursensiblen Batteriesystemen

The goal of the project b-PCM is to stabilize temperature fluctuation in thermally sensitive traction batteries, commonly used in electric or hybrid vehicles, via direct integration of a latent heat storage within the battery pack. Independently of the exact type of electrical battery storage, the use of PCMs optimizes the thermal management and thus will lead to a decrease in life time costs, increase of the driving range of electric vehicles and increase of the lifetime of batteries.
