Cooling solutions for electromobility

Cooling concepts for charging stations

EKL LadestationenAn important key figure in electric mobility is the range of vehicles. To ensure maximum range and thus individual mobility, drivers of modern electric and hybrid vehicles are demanding faster and faster charging times. With these rapid charging processes, however, an enormous amount of heat is generated which has to be cooled. "Refueling" must still be reliable, simple and safe.

The compact integration of a reliable cooling solution in the charging station, in the charging cable or in the charging plug ensures a continuously high charging cycle. With a customized cooling solution, you can eliminate limiting factors in charging time. Good cooling can reduce the cross-section of the charging cables, which makes them far more flexible and more convenient for the user. Sensors and electronics in the charging station or wall box must also have a suitable cooling solution to ensure that the charging process is always safe.

Thermal simulations and prototyping save costs and valuable development time. Do not leave anything to chance!

By integrating thermal simulations into the development at an early stage, thermal problems can be identified and remedied early. Cost and performance optimizations can also be implemented immediately. EKL AG offers you the production of functional and near-series prototypes. This enables you to verify your cooling solution in real operation. Increase your planning security and test defined properties of your cooling solution.

Liquid cooling for Li-ion batteries

EKL Batteriekühlung

An ideal cooling solution guarantees the functionality and a long service life of the Li-ion batteries. An optimal temperature window also improves the efficiency and performance of the batteries - and thus of the entire vehicle.

Often there is only a very limited space available for a cooling solution in the field of electromobility, at the same time it should be as light as possible. In addition, the heat must be transported away reliably and safely. Compared to other technologies, liquid cooling is the ideal cooling solution in the field of battery cooling because it fulfills all of these requirements.

The advantages of liquid cooling:

  • Particularly suitable for tight spaces
  • It is very easy to transfer the coolant to another location
  • Easy connection to an existing cooling circuit possible
  • Different material combinations are possible
