Thermal management : the keys for energy and heat control

Definition for Thermal Management : Thermal Management is a term identified as the ability to control the entire temperature system of a battery array, by means of technologies that lower thermodynamics, transfer or insulate heat. Thermal Management is an important discussion topic in battery-powered systems when considering insulation, heat and power transfer, conduction and convection, in order to maintain the battery pack temperature within a tight tolerance to reduce thermal runaway.
