BIM (Battery thermal management)

Untitled document  

Context

The performance and lifespan of batteries used in Electric Vehicles is highly impacted by the battery operating temperature. The latter should be kept between a range of around 20-40°C. Too low temperature would decrease the power and capacity of the battery Too high temperature would deteriorate the battery and decrease its lifespan. At very high temperatures, thermal runaway could even happen. The Battery Thermal Management (BTM) system aims at cooling and heating the battery to maintain its temperature in the appropriate range.  BTM relies on the use of air, water or refrigerant as heat transfer fluids. It is important to increase the performance of the BTM system in order not to impact significantly the vehicle driving range, but also the comfort inside the vehicle (in the case of a battery cooling system associated with the cabin air conditioning system).

 

Objectivies

The objective of the current project is to investigate the performance and the control of a refrigeration machines having 3 evaporators: 2 air-heated evaporators for the cabin climate control (front and rear seats) and 1 water-heated evaporator (“chiller”) dedicated to the battery cooling.

BRICKER aims to develop a retrofitting solution package for existing public-owned non-residential buildings in order to achieve a drastic reduction of the energy consumption (beyond 50%) and GHG emissions in this sector. 

This retrofitting package is based on:

  • Envelope retrofitting solutions for demand reduction through made-to-measure façades, innovative insulation materials and high performance windows.
  • Zero emissions energy production technologies based on a cogeneration system fed with locally available and clean renewable sources.
  • Integration and operation strategies´ development for the BRICKER Technologies and guidance for design, commissioning and maintenance.

The retrofitting solution package will be implemented in three real demonstration multi-buildings complexes, located in different climate conditions in three different European Countries and with different end-uses: Sanitary, Educational and Administrative.

To maximize impact and replicability of the project, technologies´ integration, guidance for implementation and technological transfer to Social Housing will be developed. These should help public bodies on implementation of optimal building retrofitting strategies, taking into account economic and financial aspects in the framework of limited access to funding, breakthroughs and innovative business models and continuous operation strategies during renovation.
