A predictive cabin conditioning strategy for battery electric vehicles

Patrick Schutzeich
Thermodynamics of Mobile Energy Conversion Systems (tme), RWTH Aachen University

Patrick Schutzeich (born Manns) studied mechanical engineering at the RWTH Aachen University (Germany). The topic of thermal management and cabin air conditioning accompanied him early on in his studies. After completing his master's degree in automotive engineering and transport at RWTH Aachen, he worked for one year as a project engineer at FEV Europe GmbH. At the beginning of 2019, he moved to RWTH Aachen University as a research assistant and has since been pursuing his PhD in predictive thermal management for electric vehicles. The focus of his research is on cabin and battery conditioning.

Tomohiro Higashi
Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry

Tomohiro Higashi graduated with a Ph.D. course at the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, the University of Tokyo in 2020, working at the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry, Japan. His work focuses specifically on heat pump, air-conditioning, and comfortability.

3:00 pm-3:15 pm

A compact and self-sustained thermal management system for electic-vehicles

Theodoros Kalogiannis
Vrije Universiteit Brussel – MOBI

Dr. Theodoros KALOGIANNIS- He obtained his master’s degree in 2015 from AAU, Denmark in the field of Wind Power Systems. For two years he worked as a scientific assistant in the Energy Department of AAU with focus on battery cells and Hardware in the Loop experiments of commercial battery management systems. He is currently holding a PhD degree from VUB on electro-thermal modelling and pack design optimization of Li-ion battery cells for PHEV and EVs applications. His current activities include battery ageing, thermal behavior and management, module and pack design for electric vehicle applications.
