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 phase change materials 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.
