Title
(EN) BATTERY FLUID SUPPLY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'ALIMENTATION EN LIQUIDE DE BATTERIE
Abstract
(EN)
A system for supplying fluid to a battery, a vehicle and a method for supplying fluid to a battery. The fluid supply system supplies fluid to a battery in a vehicle selectively powered by the battery, the vehicle including a frame supporting the battery, the battery including a battery cell, fluid being transmittable to the cell, gas generated during charging of the battery being transmittable out of the cell. The system is defined as including a tank for holding fluid, and a hydraulic circuit connecting the battery to the tank. The hydraulic circuit is defined as including an inlet conduit connectable between the tank and the cell, and an outlet conduit connectable between the cell and the tank, gas produced during charging causing fluid flow through the outlet conduit and to the tank. In the fluid supply system of the present invention, the gas produced during charging causes. fluid flow through the system.

L'invention concerne un système, un véhicule et un procédé destinés à alimenter une batterie en fluide. Le système d'alimentation en fluide permet d'alimenter en fluide une batterie de véhicule entraîné de façon sélective par la batterie, ce véhicule comprenant une trame supportant la batterie. La batterie est équipée d'un élément de batterie, d'un fluide pouvant être transmis à cet élément, d'un gaz produit durant le chargement de la batterie et pouvant être transmis hors de l'élément. Le système est défini comme comprenant un réservoir destiné à contenir le fluide, et un circuit hydraulique reliant la batterie au réservoir. Ce circuit électronique est défini comme comprenant une conduite d'entrée pouvant être reliée entre le réservoir et l'élément, et une conduite de sortie pouvant être reliée entre l'élément et le réservoir, le gaz peut être généré durant le chargement entraînant l'écoulement du fluide à travers la conduite de sortie et le réservoir. Dans le système d'alimentation en fluide de cette invention, le gaz généré durant le chargement entraîne l'écoulement du fluide à travers le système.
