Automotive Electric race car cooling system

  1. Sep 23, 2016 #1
    hello everybody!
    As an undergraduated student of engineering I have to design a elecric car radiator from the beginning!
    The truth is that am a little confused.. I started my calculations by estimate the rate of heat transferred by the drivetrain and finding the maximum delta T needed.. any idea of how should I continue?

    Welcome to the PF. :smile:

    So your car uses a liquid cooling system? What have you found in your research about sizing vehicle radiator systems? Can you show us links to some of the reading you have been doing?
