As OEMs are electrifying their vehicle fleets, electrical component modeling is becoming increasingly critical to the design of electric vehicles and variations of the hybrid electric vehicle (xEV). Vehicle range and cabin comfort are closely related in xEVs because the energy required to heat and cool the cabin comes from the battery pack. When modeling the additional loads on the battery pack, it is important to consider battery thermal management strategies to maintain the pack in an optimal operating range, especially for adverse thermal conditions in both hot and cold environments.
