"Battery Safety, Lifetime, and High Performance - Two-Phase Thermal Management Solutions for eMobility"
Electric vehicles are taking off. However, they are plagued by critical challenges, namely short battery lifetime, poor battery performance, safety, and difficulty working in extreme weather conditions. A new thermal management technology based on two-phase cooling addresses the above challenges by keeping battery temperature steady regardless of fast charging and car acceleration conditions and in extreme ambient temperatures such as the Scandinavian winter. Keeping battery temperature steady down to the cell level also lowers the occurrence of thermal runaway and thermal propagation, thereby increasing the safety of electric cars.
