Thank you for breaking this down.
I feel like the TMS software could be set up in such a manner to be a little proactive about cooling the battery pack. For example, if the outside temperature is 40C and the pack is 35C, I would like for the battery fan to come on at level 1 as soon as I start the car and the interior temp dips below 35C just as an active measure to slow the temperature rise.
As it's set up now the car seems to wait for the pack temp to rise over a threshold before actively trying to bring the temp back down. I'd prefer for the system to get out ahead of the coming temperature rise, particularly in high ambient temperature conditions. I was rather shocked that the battery fan didn't just ramp right up to level 9 (max) as soon as I connected it to a CHAdeMO in 40C+ temps with a cool interior, instead it waited for 43C before doing anything about it.
