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. Analyzing 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 necesseray.

Your Profile

Being independent and able to work without very strict guidelines is important since much is up to you 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 could be a plus, more relevant would be experience in simulations on heat transfer systems on a lower level than CFD.
