Category : Engineering / Design
Completion : September - December 2015
Role : Co - Designer
Tools : ANSIS | SolidWorks | MATLAB

The 2016 Waterloo Hybrid vehicle high voltage battery pack requires a cooling system to limit the temperature of the batteries to 60 ̊C. The performance of the cells degrade with higher temperatures and they become unsafe to operate, thus the cooling system is imperative to the safe performance of the car. The goal is to determine the airflow required in the accumulator module in order to limit the maximum temperature of the batteries.
