1D Lithium-Ion Battery Drive-Cycle Monitoring
Application ID: 19133
This application shows how a battery cell exposed to a hybrid electric vehicle drive cycle can be investigated with the Lithium-Ion Battery interface in COMSOL.
This model predicts the battery behavior to make comparisons of the monitored properties. They can be used to understand the battery's behavior during the cycle better, since the model includes can calculate more than is measurable, for instance:
At the same time, the model setup opens up the possibility to vary many of the battery's design parameters. For instance, materials and thickness of electrodes can easily be changed to see if the behavior is more desired.
In this example, the advanced monitoring possibilities of the Lithium-Ion Battery interface are foremost shown. The interface is also coupled to a Heat Transfer in Solids interface for the purpose of calculating the temperature.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Batteries & Fuel Cells Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
