Abstract

Technology development over the past decade made the logical components more efficient, but the efficiency was not priceless. The increase in efficiency occurred in parallel with increase in energy consumption. More energy consumption led to a more overheating problem that is one of the main technology limitation reasons.

Since the importance of the thermal management in logical components has been considered, several approaches were offered to the industry. The preliminary solution was provided by increasing the heat dissipation by convection. Heat fins are the industrial products that are designed based on this approach. But further developments in electrical engineering led to heat generations close to 100 that are not dissipated with the mentioned solution. Newest trends to solve the problem led to new technologies as, Thermal Ground Planes, Heat pipes and other Nano and Micro solution based technologies.

The battery thermal management project has targeted the macro solutions. We are taking advantage of heat simulation programs like Star ccm+ to generate models of the systems to evaluate the problem more accurate, the simulations also help the project through evaluating offered solution without the need to create real models.

Regarding the given explanations, macro solution has been simulated and tested and more approaches are being considered. We hope to step into Nano and Micro mechanical world to obtain more efficient solutions.
