Thermal management of power lithium-ion battery modules is very important to avoid thermal problems such as overheating and out of control, the study of thermal behavior of battery modules can provide guidance for the design and optimization of modules and thermal management. In this paper, a 3d thermal model of the power lithium-ion battery module is established based on STARCCM+ by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method, and a grid independence simulation test is used to determine the number of grids, the temperature distribution is analyzed under the condition of 1C charge current. The research results show that the internal temperature rises gradually with the charge going on, the temperature distribution of the cells is basically symmetrical. When the heat transfer coefficient is 5W/(m2⋅K) and the natural convective air inlet temperature is 300K, the module temperature uniformity is good. But because of the maximum temperature slightly higher than the temperature of thermal runaway, additional cooling methods need to be considered to cool the battery.
