Thermal management design for electric vehicles (EV) is very important in order to manage the heat dissipated by operating components. The project is about cooling system which is used to reduce heat dissipation from battery and increase the life of battery pack. Electric and hybrid cars are capable of reducing the uses of fossil fuel. What is common with an electric car and a hybrid car is the use of battery to store electrical energy. To sustain high performance, long lifetime and to keep high safety in an electric vehicle it’s very important to control the temperature of the battery cells. Therefore, it’s important to have a sufficient and well-designed cooling system that can keep the battery cells within recommended temperature range when the car is operating.
