The purpose of this paper is to present the philosophy and methodology behind the design of the battery pack for MITs 2013 Formula SAE Electric racecar. Functional requirements are established for the pack. An overview of cell chemistry, pack size and configuration selection process to meet these requirements is given. Next, the mechanical and electrical design and analysis of the major pack components is discussed. Finally, a transient thermal model of the pack is established to guide design choices about cooling.
