Digital Twins and Model-Based Battery Design
By combining high-fidelity multiphysics models with lightweight models and measured data, engineers can create digital twins to understand, predict, optimize, and control real-world systems.
How to Model Ion-Exchange Membranes and Donnan Potentials
Get an introduction to the theory behind the Nernst-Planck-Poisson equations, Donnan potentials, and how to model ion-exchange membranes in batteries and fuel cells.
Fueling Up for Autonomous Driving with Optimized Battery Designs
What good are fully autonomous vehicles if they run on fuel? To develop hybrid and electric autonomous vehicles, we need to design efficient and optimized battery management systems.
Analyzing the Current Distribution in a Lead-Acid Battery Design
The lead-acid battery in your car is not much different from the original one developed by Gaston Planté in 1859. 1 change is that you can now analyze the current distribution using simulation.
Advancing Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries with Modeling
The chemical energy in vanadium redox flow batteries is contained in liquid electrolytes and stored in external tanks. They can be used to improve grid energy storage and renewable energy.
Modeling Electrochemical Processes in a Solid-State Lithium-Ion Battery
Lithium-ion batteries are found in everything from consumer electronics to aerospace technology. We discuss certain design challenges that have emerged over the years.
How to Model Short Circuits in Lithium-Ion Batteries
When the chemical energy stored in a lithium-ion battery is lost as heat, rather than being used to power a device, it is known as a short circuit. Learn how to model this phenomenon.
