This project seeks to quantitatively investigate the electrical charge necessary to maintain a battery bank at nominal operating temperatures in various ambient conditions. An effectiveness analysis will be performed to determine whether the energy consumption necessary to maintain operating temperatures could be offset by an improved energy storage rate. A more efficient system could potentially lead to a smaller necessitated storage capacity; leading to reduced cost, weight, and size for battery payloads needed in various applications.
