Abstract: All automobile sectors looking at new technologies like electrical vehicles because to control the pollution and decreasing fuel consumption. In the present study, we analyze the flow and heat transfer performance of tesla model battery system and using Nano particles in base fluid. We consider water and ethylene glycol as the base fluid and aluminum oxide and copper oxide particles are dispersed into the primary phase. The investigation is performed by varying the heat source intensity of the battery and flow rate of the nanofluid is also varied. The results are compared by plotting the stream line contours, isotherms, pressure distribution inside the battery. The results show a significant reduction in the temperature distribution inside the battery system using nanofluids.
Keywords: Battery modules, copper coil, Nano particles, CFD fluid flow and heat transfer.
