Cooling Design

Main Task

Your task will be to make sure that the largest heat sources will keep cool, i.e. the battery package, motor and inverter. Analysing data from previous years will be the main source of information on what works and what doesn’t. A cooling system can contain a lot of components and it’s up to you to decide which to use and what’s necessary.

Your Profile

Being independent and able to work without very strict guidelines is important since much is up to you on how you want to design the system. There’s really no upper limit on how much can be done since the system can be configured in many ways. Experience within heat transfer or CFD is a plus, more relevant however is experience in simulations on heat transfer systems on a lower level than CFD. Since the cooling system partly guides the design of the accumulator as well as the aerodynamic system, you will be working closely with the aero and monocoque team as well as the people responsible for the accumulator container. Because of this, being a skilled communicator will serve you well.
