MAXIMIZING EV THERMAL MANAGEMENT FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE WITH SENSORS
Representing the intersection of technology and mobility, electric vehicles (EV) are more than the future of transportation – they’re the present and already changing the world.
EV thermal management for optimal vehicle performance requires a high level of precision and constant systems checks. Without sophisticated, responsive, and reliable sensor technology, the electrification revolution in transportation could fall flat.
In our presentation, Sensor Design and Optimization for XEV, EVSE, and ESS Thermal Management, we look at:
- Temperature’s impact on EV battery health & life
- Optimized thermal management systems
- Robust sensor technology for temperature monitoring
- EV system(s) design & sensor integration.
- And much more!

EV Battery Thermal Management – An Absolute Must
Excessive heat is an EV battery’s worst enemy. When exposed to temperatures beyond 45℃, an EV battery may become damaged and have a:
- Reduced lifespan
- Lowered charging capacity
- Reduced range
In extreme circumstances, excessive heat causes thermal runaway, in which an EV battery’s cells break down and burst into flame.
Cold temperatures (specifically those lower than 15 ℃) also have ill effects on an electric vehicle battery, impacting its ability to:
- Hold a charge
- Maintain range
- Power efficiently
Keeping an EV battery within the 15-45℃ range – even when charging – ensures the vehicle’s power source is not overtaxed, causing inefficiencies.
What You’ll Get From This Presentation
An EV battery thermal management system is one of the most important parts of any electrified vehicle.
In this presentation, we take a deep dive into:
Electric Car Sensors for Effective Thermal Management
When it comes to EV battery thermal management systems, there’s no shortage of places to integrate sensor technology into an EV’s design. Even areas that aren’t in close physical proximity are candidates for sensors.
If an EV component runs off of power, it’s drawing electricity from the battery. Without strategically placed sensors, it’s impossible to monitor temperatures throughout a vehicle and other stressors on EV battery efficiency.
What sensors are critical for EV thermal management? The most effective EV battery thermal management systems have:
- Ambient temperature sensors
- EV battery pack sensors
- HVAC & air quality sensors
- Coolant sensors
- Refrigerant sensors
- Non-conducting temperature sensors
