What is thermal management in electric vehicles?
Thermal management in electric vehicles involves regulating and controlling the temperature of key components, such as the battery, motor, and power electronics, through methods like liquid or air cooling, ensuring optimal performance, efficiency, and longevity.

What are the main heat dissipation methods for electric vehicles at present?
Currently, the main heat dissipation methods for electric vehicles include liquid cooling systems, air cooling systems, and a combination of both, where liquid cooling is often employed for critical components like the battery, motor, and power electronics, while air cooling is used for supplementary heat dissipation.

What is thermal potting?
Thermal potting is a process where a thermally conductive material, such as epoxy resin or silicone-based compound, is used to encase electronic components, eliminating air gaps to improve heat dissipation, provide electrical insulation, and offer protection against environmental factors.

What material is used for thermal potting compounds?
Thermal potting compounds typically use materials such as epoxy resins, silicone-based compounds, and other specialised thermally conductive polymers.
