About this Research Topic
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology has been employed in a wide range of energy storage applications including electric vehicles and energy storage systems. The Li-ion battery technology has become a crucial link in the chain of clean energy harvest and delivery. The performance of Li-ion batteries is highly dependent on their operating thermal environment, and a suitable temperature range is critical for maintaining the efficiency, safety, and longevity of Li-ion batteries.
The goal of this collection is to address the thermal related issues of Li-ion batteries and improve their performance and safety in various applications. Specifically, 1) improving the battery performance in normal uses through implementing proper thermal management systems; 2) analyzing the degradation and failure modes of Li-ion batteries in various thermal environments; 3) providing strategies to address the thermal-related issues and to improve the thermal performance of Li-ion batteries.
• Thermal management systems including cooling and heating techniques.
• Research on battery thermal runaway and its propagation in battery packs.
• Thermal runaway prevention techniques.
• Designs that can improve the thermal performance of batteries.
