Electric vehicle thermal management
Electric vehicle has been a hot issue because of environment regulations, increasing oil cost, and diesel gate. However, the mileage of electric vehicle is more shorter than general internal combustion engine based vehicle due to the limitation of the battery, inverter, etc. In order to overcome these limitations, a number of vehicle companies focused how to increase the density of battery and efficiency of inverter. Furthermore, the thermal management of battery and inverter also hot issue due to increasing energy density.
As a results, MEL develops and designs the weightless heat spreader using Al and also characterizes the corrosion of Al based heat spreader.
