This paper describes a thermal model that represents the heat generation behavior of a large format (10.5 Ah) Li-ion pouch cell. The thermal model is based on the calculation of the heat generation from experimental measurements of internal resistance and the entropic heat coefficient. Predictions from the thermal model are compared with experimental adiabatic calorimetry data. Higher discharge rates and larger temperature operation ranges than the ones reported in prior studies are considered. Results from the thermal model simulations have a prediction error of 21% in comparison with the experimental ones for discharge processes carried out at moderate rates. For discharge processes carried out at high discharge rates a maximum prediction error of 15% has been determined. The advantages and disadvantages of the model are further discussed, taking into account aspects such as accuracy, model development and implementation in different thermal management system designs.
