Therefore, a cooling plate (hereinafter also referred to as a cooling device) may be provided in the power supply system. For example, Patent Document 1 discloses a technique for stacking unit battery cells and a cooling plate.

JP-A-2005-116323

  However, in the conventional power supply system, the battery module and the cooling plate are fixed with a bolt or the like. Therefore, both were not fully fixed and adhesiveness was inadequate. For example, in the cooling structure of Patent Document 1, fixing both has not been sufficiently studied. Therefore, there was a problem that the cooling effect by the cooling plate could not be sufficiently exhibited. In addition, there was a difference in heat conductivity from the battery to the cooling plate depending on the location. Therefore, there has been a problem that the cooling effect varies depending on the location in the battery module.

The cooling device is fixed to the battery module, has a cooling surface with different vertical and horizontal lengths, and is arranged so that the longitudinal direction of the cooling surface is substantially the same as the longitudinal direction of the battery module. At least one fixing member is formed at both ends of the fixing member and includes a locked portion that is locked with the locking portion. When the locking portion is locked to the locked portion, the cooling device faces the battery module. It is characterized by energizing.

  According to this power supply system, a sufficient urging force can be applied to the battery module 6 from the cooling device 100 by locking the battery module in the short direction using the fixing member. Thereby, with a simple structure, the thermal conductivity from a battery module to a cooling device can be improved, and the cooling effect by a cooling device can be improved. Further, the locking between the locking portion and the locked portion can be strengthened, and the installation state of the power supply system can be further stabilized.

In the present embodiment, all the twelve batteries 30 are electrically connected in series, but some of them may be connected in parallel. A separator 70 made of an insulating resin such as plastic is provided between the adjacent batteries 30. By the separator 70, the insulation between the adjacent batteries 30 is enhanced.

  The battery module 6 includes a plurality of submodules 4 each including a plurality of batteries 30. The submodule 4 is fixed to one surface (cooling surface 110) of the cooling device 100, and a plurality of submodules 4 are arranged in the longitudinal direction of the cooling device 100.

When the number of batteries 30 used in the submodule 4 is increased, in the submodule 4, the side plate 90 may be longer in the horizontal direction when installed than the end plate 80. In this case, the end plate 80 forms the long side of the battery module 6 by increasing the number of submodules 4 used in the battery module 6 and arranging the end plates 80 in a straight line.

  The battery module 6 has locking portions 96 provided at both ends in the short direction, that is, at end plate extending portions 92 formed in the vicinity of the surface in contact with the cooling device 100 in the installed state (FIGS. 1 and 2).

The locking part 96 is locked to a locked part 18 provided on the fixing member 10 described later. In the present embodiment, the locking portion 96 is a hole formed by cutting out the end plate extending portion 92. When the plurality of submodules 4 are arranged along the longitudinal direction of the cooling device 100, the locking portion 96 is preferably provided in each submodule 4.

The base portion 50 a of the negative electrode terminal 50 is fitted into the negative electrode opening 33 a of the sealing plate 33 with the gasket 34 in contact with the side surface. The gasket 34 is also in contact with the surfaces of the first flange portion 50b and the second flange portion 50c facing the sealing plate 33. Further, the base portion 50 a is connected to the negative electrode tab member 54 on the battery inner side of the sealing plate 33.

  A recess 51 is provided at the tip of the base 50a located inside the battery so that a side wall is formed along the negative electrode opening 33a. By caulking the edge portion of the recess 51 so as to expand, the negative electrode terminal 50 is fixed to the negative electrode tab member 54 and the inside of the battery 30 is sealed.

The insulating plate 35 and the gasket 34 are in contact with each other at the negative electrode opening 33a. Thereby, the negative electrode tab member 54 and the negative electrode terminal 50 are insulated from the sealing plate 33. The negative electrode tab member 54 is connected to the negative electrode current collector plate group 32 a protruding from one end surface of the electrode body 32. The negative electrode current collector plate group 32 a is a bundle of a plurality of negative electrode current collector plates protruding from one end face of the electrode body 32.

  The positive electrode terminal 60 includes a base 60a, a first flange 60b, and a second flange 60c. The base 60a has a substantially cylindrical shape, and a plate-like first flange 60b is formed at one end of one end disposed on the outside of the housing, and a slope is formed at the other end of the one end.

The base portion 60 a of the positive electrode terminal 60 is fitted into the positive electrode opening 33 b of the sealing plate 33 with the gasket 34 in contact with the side surface. The gasket 34 is also in contact with the surfaces of the first flange portion 60b and the second flange portion 60c facing the sealing plate 33. The base portion 60 a is connected to the positive electrode tab member 64 on the battery inner side of the sealing plate 33.

  A recess 61 is formed at the tip of the base 60a located inside the battery so that a side wall is formed along the positive electrode opening 33b. By caulking the edge portion of the recess 61 so as to expand, the positive electrode terminal 60 is fixed to the positive electrode tab member 64 and the inside of the battery 30 is sealed.

Moreover, the bus bar and the positive electrode terminal 60 are physically and electrically connected by inserting the bolt portion 62 of the positive electrode terminal 60 into the other through hole of the bus bar and fixing it with a nut (not shown).

The cooling device 100 has a cooling surface 110 in which a main body 102 is formed in a substantially rectangular parallelepiped shape and is fixed to the battery module 6 with different vertical and horizontal lengths. Therefore, when the cooling surface 110 is viewed in a plan view with the power supply system 1 installed, it has a long side and a short side substantially orthogonal to the long side (FIGS. 1 and 4). The cooling device 100 is fixed to one surface of the battery module 6 so that the longitudinal direction of the cooling surface 110 is substantially the same as the longitudinal direction of the battery module 6. A heat conductive sheet may be provided between the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100. As described above, the fixed state in the present embodiment includes a state in which the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100 are not in physical contact but are thermally connected.

  A U-shaped tube 108 is formed inside the main body 102 (FIG. 3C). The cooling water flowing through the inside removes the heat generated in the battery module 6, thereby cooling the battery module 6. Water is supplied from a supply port 104 that is an inlet of the U-shaped tube 108, and is discharged from a discharge port 106 that is an outlet of the U-shaped tube 108. Water circulation is performed by a pump (not shown). Note that the cooling device 100 may be a simple metal plate in which cooling water does not flow. In this case, it is preferable to form the cooling device 100 using a material such as aluminum having high thermal conductivity.

  The fixing member 10 is disposed in contact with the surface 112 opposite to the cooling surface 110 of the cooling device 100, and fixes the cooling device 100 to the battery module 6. As shown in FIG. 3, the fixing member 10 includes a plate-like base portion 12 and a pair of side portions 14 formed integrally with the base portion 12. The pair of side portions 14 is erected substantially perpendicular to the base portion 12 so as to be substantially parallel to each other. The base 12 is curved so as to be convex toward the cooling device 100 (FIG. 3B).

  The side portion 14 is provided with a locked portion 18 to be locked with the locking portion 96 and a hole 22 for facilitating attachment / detachment of the fixing member 10 to / from the power supply system 1. In order to be locked with the locking portion 96 formed in the hole shape of the battery module 6, the locked portion 18 is a convex portion that faces the locking portion 96 in the installed state of the power supply system 1 here. Is formed. In addition, the base 12 is formed with a slit 20 for improving the deformability at the time of fixing. Further, the fixing member 10 is formed with a slit 24 extending from the base portion 12 to the side portion 14. Therefore, the fixing member 10 is formed in a net shape by the slits 20 and 24. Further, the side portion 14 is formed with a side portion extending portion 16 and a hole 26 provided in the side portion extending portion 16. The fixing member 10 is screwed to the battery module 6 through the hole 26 as necessary.

  The fixing member 10 is formed of high tension steel (high tensile steel) having elasticity, heat resistance, durability, and water resistance. The thickness of the high tension steel can be set to 0.8 mm, for example. However, any material having such properties can be suitably used as the material of the fixing member 10. For example, a general steel plate or a stainless spring material can be used.

  Next, with reference to FIGS. 1 and 4, installation of the power supply system 1, that is, fixing of the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100 using the fixing member 10 will be described. The battery module 6 has end plate extending portions 92 at both ends of the module. Further, the distance between the end plate extending portions 92 in the short direction of the battery module 6 is substantially the same as the width of the cooling device 100 in the short direction. Thereby, when the battery module 6 is arrange | positioned with respect to the cooling surface 110 of the cooling device 100, the relative position of the transversal direction of the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100 is fixed.

  Further, in the installed state of the power supply system 1, the fixing member 10 is disposed in contact with the surface 112 of the cooling device 100 in a direction in which the side portion 14 is substantially parallel to the long side of the power supply system 1. Therefore, the locked portion 18 provided on the side portion 14 is in the vicinity of both ends in the short direction of the battery module 6 when viewed in plan in the installed state of the power supply system 1, and the locking portion 96. It is arranged at a position where it can be locked. As a result, the locked portion 18 is locked with the locking portion 96. Due to the locking of the locked portion 18 and the locking portion 96, a stress perpendicular to the surface 112 is generated from the fixing member 10 toward the cooling device 100 in a state where the fixing member 10 and the battery module 6 are fixed. . Thereby, the fixing member 10 urges the cooling device 100 toward the battery module 6. In addition, the fixing member 10 has a base 12 that is curved so as to protrude toward the cooling device 100. Therefore, the stress that the fixing member 10 applies to the cooling device 100 does not decrease even near the center of the cooling device 100.

  1 and 4, the power supply system 1 is vertically installed, that is, the installation state in which the surface of the end plate 80 faces the horizontal direction, but the installation state is not limited to this. For example, the power supply system 1 may be installed sideways, that is, in a state where the end plate 80 faces in the vertical direction. Even in this case, the fixing member 10 urges the cooling device 100 toward the battery module 6.

  As shown in FIG. 1, when the battery module 6 is configured by arranging the plurality of submodules 4 along the longitudinal direction of the cooling device 100, the fixing member 10 extends along the longitudinal direction of the battery module 6. Preferably, a plurality of submodules 4 are provided at predetermined intervals corresponding to the locking portions 96 of each submodule 4. Thus, the plurality of submodules 4 are preferably fixed to the cooling device 100 via the plurality of fixing members 10. In this case, it is particularly preferable that one fixing member 10 is provided for one submodule 4. However, a plurality of fixing members 10 may be provided for one submodule 4, or a plurality of submodules may be provided. One fixing member 10 may be provided for four.

  According to the power supply system 1 described above, a sufficient urging force can be applied to the battery module 6 from the cooling device 100 by locking the battery module 6 in the short direction using the fixing member 10. it can. Thereby, with a simple structure, the thermal conductivity from the battery module 6 to the cooling device 100 can be enhanced, and the cooling effect by the cooling device 100 can be enhanced. Further, the locked state between the locked portion 18 and the locking portion 96 can be strengthened, and the installation state of the power supply system 1 can be further stabilized.

  Further, by providing the fixing member 10 for each of the plurality of submodules 4, the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100 can be reliably fixed. In addition, even when a plurality of submodules 4 are provided, the urging force can be applied to the battery module 6 from the cooling device 100 while suppressing variation depending on the location.

  Moreover, since the latching part 96 is formed in the strong end plate 80 by providing the latching part 96 in the end plate 80, the battery module 6 can be fixed reliably.

  Further, by bending the base portion 12 in a mountain shape toward the direction in contact with the cooling device 100, a sufficient force can be applied also to the vicinity of the central portion in the short direction of the power supply system 1 where the force is not easily applied. Thereby, the pressure distribution with respect to the cooling device 100 of the battery module 6 can be leveled, and the cooling device 100 can be urged | biased with respect to the battery module 6, suppressing the dispersion | variation by a place. As a result, the temperature deviation can be reduced throughout the battery module 6.

  Further, by forming the slits 20 and 24 in the fixing member 10 to improve the deformability of the fixing member 10 in the installed state, the fixing member 10 can be used even when the battery module 6 or the cooling device 100 is deformed due to heat generation. Thus, the biased state of both can be maintained.

  Moreover, by providing a heat conductive sheet between the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100, the heat conduction efficiency from the battery module 6 to the cooling device 100 can be increased, and the battery module 6 can be cooled more efficiently. .

(Modification)
FIG. 5A and FIG. 5B are a front view of a fixing member 10 according to a modification and a front view of the power supply system 1, respectively. In the present modification, as shown in FIG. 5A, when the fixing member 10 is viewed in plan view from the surface in contact with the cooling device 100 in the installed state, the base portion 12 extends in the short direction of the battery module 6. It further has the extension part 28 formed by extending. This point is different from the fixing member 10 shown in FIG.

  The base portion 12 and the extending portion 28 are integrally bent in a mountain shape (bow shape) in a direction in contact with the cooling device 100. In this case, the height of the mountain-shaped portion is higher than that in the case where the extending portion 28 is not provided. Therefore, when the cooling device 100 is fixed to the battery module 6 using the fixing member 10 of this modification, as shown in FIG. 5B, the fixing member 10 does not have the extending portion 28. The fixing member 10 is deformed more greatly. As a result, the opposing side portions 14 are more greatly deformed toward each other, so that the side portions 14 press the end plate extension portion 92 with a stronger force. The extending portion 28 is preferably the same member as the base portion 12.

  According to this modification, the urging force of the cooling device 100 with respect to the battery module 6 and the fixation between the battery module 6 and the cooling device 100 can be further strengthened with a simple structure. In addition, since the extending portion 28 extends in the short direction of the power supply system 1, the stability at the time of installation of the power supply system 1 can be improved, and the overturn and the movement can be prevented.
