In this paper, state-of-the-art developed to control battery temperature near a pre-specified state is qualitatively reviewed with the intent to identify potential candidate for implementation in a modular architecture. Some of the novel techniques that provide high-scalability in addition to appreciable cost and energy-savings over traditional methods are also evaluated while considering the development state and associated technical risks. It is found that only a hybrid system can meet technical requirements imposed by modular design. Based on the current state, phase change materials and thermoelectric devices are more likely to be part of this next generation thermal management system.
