By using the method of transient numerical calculation, the effects of different coolant flow rates, coolant inlet temperature and input power on the thermal performance of the heat pipe cooling system are studied. Results shows temperature increased with the input power and coolant inlet temperature and decreased with the increasing coolant flow rate, and the temperature difference of the battery surface also increased with the input power and decreased with the increasing coolant flow rate. Within the scope of this study when coolant inlet temperature is 15℃ the maximum temperature is always below 40 °C .
