Title: MODULAR ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM WITH BATTERY COOLING
Abstract:
A modular energy storage system including an enclosure having at least one thermally conductive sidewall; a battery module housed inside of the enclosure and including a plurality of battery submodules, each battery submodule including a plurality of battery cells, at least some of the plurality of battery cells being electrically interconnected to each other; at least one heat pipe thermally coupled to the plurality of battery cells of at least one of the plurality of battery submodules to channel heat from the plurality of battery cells thermally coupled thereto to the at least one thermally conductive sidewall of the enclosure; and a cooling mechanism thermally coupled to the at least one thermally conductive sidewall of the enclosure to cool the at least one heat pipe.
