Title (EN) BATTERY HEATING DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) RECHAUFFEUR DE BATTERIES D'ACCUMULATEURS ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT
Abstract:
(EN) A battery heating device (5) for delivering thermal energy to at least one vehicle battery includes a battery support plate (7) for supporting the battery, a heatable fluid tube (10) supported underneath the battery support plate (7) for transferring thermal energy from heatable fluid, such as engine coolant, to the battery, and one or more electric heating pads (40) secured to the battery support plate (7) to transfer thermal energy to the battery. The heatable fluid tube (10) preferably is secured to the battery support plate (7) by a continuously distributed, thermally conductive adhesive material, to enhance heat transfer to the battery via the battery support plate (7). The heatable fluid tube (10) is constructed and disposed to be a non-weight-bearing member, to reduce the likelihood of engine coolant leakage.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un réchauffeur de batteries d'accumulateurs apportant de l'énergie thermique à au moins une batterie d'accumulateurs de véhicule. Ce réchauffeur est constitué: d'un plateau support de batterie supportant la batterie; d'un tube à fluide réchauffable fixé en dessous du plateau support de batterie et permettant de transférer à la batterie l'énergie thermique d'un fluide réchauffable tel que le liquide de refroidissement du moteur; et d'un ou plusieurs éléments chauffants électriques fixés au plateau support de batterie de façon à transférer l'énergie thermique à la batterie. Le tube de fluide réchauffable est de préférence fixé au plateau support de batterie au moyen d'un matériau adhésif thermoconducteur réparti de façon continue et destiné à accroître le transfert thermique depuis la batterie, via le plateau support de batterie. Ce tube de fluide réchauffable est construit et disposé de façon à ne pas constituer un élément supportant une masse, et ce, afin de réduire la probabilité de fuite de liquide de refroidissement du moteur.
