Thermal Interface Materials: Diverse, Essential, and Evolving

Thermal Interface Materials: Diverse, Essential, and Evolving

This article highlights some key material development trends. More specifically, approaches to increase the thermal conductivity (in W/mK) of TIMs are considered. This is an important trend because the IDTechEx assessment is that the market, in absolute terms, for high or ultrahigh thermal conductivity TIM materials, will inevitably rise.

Legacy Systems Are Limiting Thermal Management of Electric Vehicles

Legacy Systems Are Limiting Thermal Management of Electric Vehicles

The drivetrain of an electric vehicle is, in theory, much simpler than a combustion vehicle. Despite this, many electric vehicle contain several different coolant fluids. Is this optimal or a remnant from legacy systems?

Using the Shadow Effect to Generate Electricity

Using the Shadow Effect to Generate Electricity

Shadows are often associated with darkness and uncertainty. Now, researchers are giving shadows a positive spin by demonstrating a way to harness this common but often overlooked optical effect to generate electricity. This novel concept opens up new approaches in generating green energy under indoor lighting conditions to power electronics.

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

As electric vehicles rapidly grow in popularity worldwide, there will soon be a wave of used batteries whose performance is no longer sufficient for vehicles that need reliable acceleration and range. But a new study shows that these batteries could still have a useful and profitable second life as backup storage for grid-scale solar photovoltaic installations, where they could perform for more than a decade in this less demanding role.

Hot Performance and Cool Operation for Electric Vehicle Motors

The market for electric vehicles is set to exceed $1,000bn by 2030 but potential consumers are still concerned with range, cost and safety. Whilst this draws attention initially to the battery, an equally important factor and unifying component of electric vehicles is the electric motor and its effective thermal management.

Pollution: The Lockdown Effect and the Battery Energy Storage Solution

The pandemic infection of COVID-19 has led to the lockdown of a considerable number of cities, leading to reduced pollution activity. With the large number of renewable energy sources employed in the last decades to decarbonise the energy sector, a growing number of energy storage devices have been coupled with renewable energy sources.

Immersion of Electric Vehicle Batteries: The Best Way to Keep Cool?

The electric vehicle market is growing rapidly, and with it the demand for fast charging, increased energy density and improved safety. Something that all these areas have in common is heat. Charging a battery quickly generates a lot of heat, with the extra energy capacity of modern and upcoming electric vehicle batteries, extracting this heat becomes more challenging.
