A 6 cells module was analyzed in STAR-CCM+. Prismatic wound cells were used and the ohmic heating was solved in the cells connectors. This image shows the temperature distribution on the pack and on the air flow streamlines.
Temperature distribution analysis of a module of 84 cells: 42 cells connected in series, and each row is connected in parallel. Liquid cooled plate are lateraly postionned on those rows (Image courtesy of ASCS, Stuttgart and Behr)
