A REVIEW OF THE EXERGY ANALYSIS OF THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN ELECTRIC VEHICLES
Exergy analysis is an advanced and a fair method of performance evaluation compared to the traditional energy analysis. In this article, a review of the exergy analysis studies carried out in the field of thermal management of electric vehicles is conducted. Studies conducted on battery, electric motor, cabin and electronics have been considered. It is noted that most of the work is done on battery thermal management. The nature of the work, methods used, parameters varied and parameters evaluated are listed. It can be found that the amount of work carried out in this field is very much limited. Hence, the scope of future work is more and is described in the conclusions.
