The large push for more environmental energy-storage solutions for the automotive industry by different actors has led to the usage of lithium-ion capacitors combining the features of both lithium-ion batteries and electric-double layer capacitors. In this paper, the thermal behaviour of two types of advanced lithium-ion capacitors have been thoroughly studied and analysed by developing a 3D thermal model in COMSOL Multiphysics®. Such an extensive and accurate thermal 3D has not been fully addressed in literature, which is a key building block for designing battery packs with an adequate thermal management. After an extensive measurement campaign, the high accuracy of the developed model in this paper is proven for both types of lithium-ion capacitors, the 3300F and the 2300F one. An error between the simulation and measurements is maximum 2 Degrees Celsius. This 3D model has been developed to gain insight in the thermal behaviour of lithium-ion capacitors which is necessary to develop a thermal management system which can ensure the safe operation of lithium-ion capacitors when used in modules or packs.
