Battery temperature significantly influences the service life and performance of electric buses. Extreme outside temperatures and temperature spikes during the charging process can stress battery packs.
Konvekta's CO2 heat pumps, equipped with the battery-temperature-control module, effectively and precisely regulate battery temperatures. Energy storage devices operate within an optimal temperature range, minimizing the risk of excessive heat buildup during operation or overly low temperatures in winter.
Without reliable and constant temperature control, this can lead to accelerated battery degradation, long-term loss of capacity and lower performance, which directly affects the lifespan, range and operation of an electric bus.
Controlled temperature control minimizes these risks, increases battery life and helps to optimize the total cost of ownership. Battery temperature control therefore has a direct impact on reliability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of electric buses.
