Thermal modeling of temperature rise in high-power Li-ion battery cells and modules is presented here. Simulation results are validated by experiments. Results indicate that entropy heat generation plays a significant role in heat generation of Li-ion battery cells and should be included in simulation as a function of state of charge (SOC). Simulation results utilizing measured overpotential resistance and entropy heat generation provide the best fit when compared to experimental results. Resistance data provided by supplier shows significant difference compared with measured data and should be critically examined for any module design purposes.
