This paper analyzes the heat generation mechanism of lithium iron phosphate battery. The simulation and analysis of the battery thermal management system using water cooling is carried out. A cooling plate model in the thermal management system of water cooled battery was established. According to the simulation results of the cooling plate, Designed and developed a water cooled battery thermal management system. The experimental results show that the water cooling system has a better cooling effect, which can reduce the temperature gradient inside the battery box. All batteries are working in a stable environment, which is conducive to maintaining the consistency of the battery pack.
