Thermal Management - The Key Enabler for Future Propulsion Systems

The times when “thermal management” meant “prevent overheating” are long gone. Today the boundaries between “vehicle thermal management” and “vehicle energy management” are more and more fading.

  • Thermal management speeds up the warm-up and allows the usage of waste heat in combustion engine vehicles.
  • Thermal management determines both the maximal available power (and how long it is actually available) and the range of electric vehicles, especially in hot summer and cold winter conditions.
  • Thermal management systems have reached a new peak in both efficiency and complexity in top level electric hybrid cars.
  • Thermal management will be one of the many issues to solve when we talk about future propulsion technologies like fuel cells.

Join our KULI User Meeting to get to know more about the complexity and wide range of thermal management and its influence in current and future technologies. Be a part of our global thermal management community and meet long-time friends and new colleagues from all over the world for interesting discussions.
