Talk Title
Electro-thermal Modeling of Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery for Discharge Cycle in Electric Vehicle
Talk Abstract
Ambient temperature impacts the thermal performance of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries in electric vehicles. An electro-thermal model to estimate the temperature and electrical parameters such as voltage at different ambient temperatures is important.  Sensitivity tests on the electro-thermal model of the LiFePO4 battery cell and stack will be performed. The result is helpful to provide quick estimate and subsequent improvement in the performance of both electrical and thermal performance in battery cells.
