Hybrid’s Liquid System for the Volt Automobile - FrostyTech.com Hybrid’s Liquid System for the Volt Automobile
Tue Jul 27, 2010 | 3:17P| PermaLink
The liquid heating and cooling system in the Chevrolet Volt battery enabled GM to make more room for battery cells.

"Standard auto coolant circulates through 144 metal plates, called fins, between each of the Volt hybrid battery’s 288 cells. The fins are only 1mm thick, but coolant still circulates through channels in them. When the battery needs to warm up, a heating coil warms the fluid.Batteries in electric cars from startup Tesla Motors Inc. are also liquid-cooled."

"The length of the warranty stems in part from GM's confidence in the Volt's liquid heating and cooling system, which GM says extends the battery's life by keeping it at optimal temperatures. The Volt is the only such mass-market vehicle with a liquid-powered thermal management system, GM said."

"In the 21st Century, notebooks are an ever growing fad due to commerce demanding that its systems are mobile. Notebooks are a popular choice because of the features available - such as flexibility, mobility, lightweight, wireless etc. There’s no avoiding it, notebooks do indeed give us a unique advantage to cope in an ever active world, they have contributed enormously to businesses world-wide enabling people to get on with their day to day life whilst on the go. These rich features come at a price though. Notebooks frequently break and compared to desktop machines do not have as long a life expectancy. The simple reason for this is that the components inside a notebook are very tightly fitted together and because they are so compact this causes various devices and components to overheat thus reducing the life significantly, as well as causing system crashes and other random setbacks.
