Hybrid technology is indeed being excellent for customers who want to start mobility with electrification. Although this technology has been introduced for a long time, hybrid technology and PHEV are believed to have no less great performance and can compete with pure combustion engine cars.
To make its hybrid technology even more sophisticated, Porsche is rumored to have registered a new patent that works as a cooler for their hybrid vehicle's battery cells when in use.
The patent explains that later the battery will be cooled using wind coming from the turbocharger wind. The document also explains that the strong wind is able to lower the battery temperature to an optimal point, which in turn makes the car's performance even better.
From the patent image shared, the air from outside will be compressed by a conventional turbocharger or electric supercharger which then meets an additional booster which is described as a blower that shoots cooling air into the battery.
In other words, if the battery is still hot and the airflow from the turbo isn't strong enough to cool it down, the battery will add a little more power to make the wind stronger. The second option is to add a small battery that acts as a booster for certain situations.
Not only used to cool the battery, this patent can also work in winter. Later, the air will be pushed into the heater to produce warm air to keep the battery at an optimal temperature when used in winter.
The technology is indeed quite complicated, the mechanism is still very limited. The manufacturer from Stuttgart even still has to find a way so that this patent does not add to the weight of the vehicle too much. Moreover, to add new components that are large and heavy.
If this feature can work perfectly without adding weight, it is possible that in the future we can see a Porsche 911 in Antarctica or even go on a snow expedition.
