Battery Stack: Modeling a Cooling Circuit

Modeling and simulation can be used to custom design components for specific application scenarios. This example uses the SmartCooling library to model an electric vehicle battery stack with a cooling circuit. The model is then used to demonstrate the usability of an on-off hysteresis control for the cooling fan to keep the maximum cell temperature between given limits.
