Thermal energy in electric cars is a challenging task which need to be studied in detail. Current technology allows more efficient way to control thermal management. Temperature management should be optimized between components such as the battery, the HVAC system, the electric motor and the inverter. The symposium objective is to address ways to effectively study this process in detail.  Different cooling methods have proposed using air cooling, liquid cooling, phase change material and porous structures. The process could be passive cooling or active cooling. Different challenges face engineers these days amongst them liquid leaks, corrosion, clogging, climates, and aging.


Different keynote speakers will address these challenges. The proposed topics to be discussed in this symposium are.

  • System level and aggregate level performance optimization for thermal management of Battery.
