In this work, a mathematical thermal model for lithium ion battery pack with specific configuration was developed by coupling the single particle model and energy balance equation with basic circuit constraints. The temperature variation at different parts of the battery pack was considered in charge/discharge operations, and the dependency of cell parameters on temperature were taken into account. The model was validated by comparing the simulated current, voltage, and temperature profiles with experimental data. Case studies such as battery balancing and circuit interruption were also performed and discussed.
