by Philip Stone; Santiago Lentijo; Tony Thampan; David Wilson


In support of the Army’s Next Generation Combat Vehicle the Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) and UEC Electronics have been evaluating current technologies to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a High Voltage Common Module (HVCM). In this paper the authors describe the process used to select the optimal cells, as well as a comparison of the different cooling options for the battery module.
