Extension of battery life through thermal management enables the continuous improvement of device hardware and device computational power. Potential solutions currently exist, and are highly capable. This project used analytical, computational, and experimental methods in parallel in order to identify characteristics of thermal management systems. These characteristics were investigated through the use of uncertainty analysis and one-dimensional models, solid modeling and finite element analysis for three-dimensional heat flow, and wireless control of a Peltier system through an Arduino board to control battery surface temperature. Results obtained can be used in the development of potential thermal management systems for incorporation in future portable devices.
