Flash Battery CEO Marco Righi spoke with DPI about the thermal management Requirements of lithium batteries used in off-highway and industrial machinery
Lithium batteries are now used in many different applications, ranging from off-highway machinery through to agricultural vehicles, aerial platforms, airport ground support and marine.
Each of these has its own requirements based on operating conditions. Thermal management of the battery pack is a critical function, influencing performance and total operating lifetime. If the temperature is too low it reduces the battery capacity; too high and it can cause degradation and reduce the number of potential recharging cycles.
Marco Righi, CEO and founder of Flash Battery explained to DPI which are the main requirements in terms of battery thermal management detailing the differences between heating and cooling system.
