Review of heat pipes for power batteries of new energy vehicles


  • Yuchen Huang



The application of new energy systems, thermal management technology of lithium batteries, analysis of heat pipe research.


With the global energy crisis becoming one of the most concerned topics, the application of new energy systems has become the most popular research at present. In addition, with the emerging new energy vehicles, problems such as high calorific value and insufficient heat dissipation performance of lithium batteries for new energy vehicles have not been solved, so the research on thermal management technology of lithium batteries is essential. Based on the analysis of heat pipe research, this paper summarizes heat pipe from three aspects, including structure and arrangement of the heat pipe, wall materials of the heat pipe and phase change materials of the heat pipe. This paper puts forward new insights and provides a reference for the research on the thermal management of lithium batteries for new energy vehicles.
