Battery Technology,
Edition 1 From Fundamentals to Thermal Behavior and Management
By Marc A Rosen and Aida Farsi

Publication Date: 25 Jan 2023

Battery Technology: From Fundamentals to Thermal Behavior and Management provides comprehensive coverage of rechargeable battery technology fundamentals, along with relevant aging mechanisms and thermal management systems. With a strong focus on the analysis and modeling of battery technologies, the book includes coverage of overpotentials in battery cells and discussions on the thermal-electrochemical coupled modeling of batteries. Beginning with an introduction to battery technology, the book then takes a deep dive into thermodynamics of batteries and electrochemical modeling of batteries. Subsequent chapters examine battery thermal behavior and thermal systems, before discussing integrated battery-based systems.

Accompanied by chapter objectives, applications, case studies and study questions to test knowledge, this book is an essential resource for students and researchers wanting to understand the underlying basics of batteries, along with the latest advances in battery technology.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive resource on the fundamentals of battery technologies and their thermal management systems
  • Follows a coherent approach, starting from fundamentals and basics and culminating with advanced systems and applications
  • Highlights case studies and real-world examples throughout to bridge the gap between knowledge and practical applications

There are no foundational, comprehensive texts on battery technology. Our proposal uniquely combines thermal behavior, battery technologies and modeling, whilst covering fundamental concepts. The below competitors cover some aspects of this:Zhang et al, Redox Flow Batteries, 1e, CRC Press, 2018, 9781498753944, $220, 444 pp, hardcover.Covers fundamentals and applications specific to redox flow batteries, rather than comprehensive coverage of a broad spectrum of battery types. Also does not provide detailed information on thermal behavior and has not been structured with students in mind.Dincer et al, Thermal Management of Electric Vehicle Battery Systems, 1e, Wiley, 2017, 9781118900246, $156, 480 pp, hardcover. The competitive title reviews battery technology specific to electric vehicle applications. Our proposed title is more foundational covering a range of battery types and applications. It also provides detailed analysis and mathematical modelling, which the competitive title does not. The competitive title can be used by students, but this is not it’s primary audience. Our proposed title will be designed with students as the primary audience, including study questions/worked problems.
