Thermal Performance of Lithium-Ion Batteries

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.


Keywords: Thermal performance, Lithium-ion batteries, Thermal management, Thermal runaway, Safety


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
