Electrochemistry and Battery Modeling (2 Days)

Sep 10 - Sep 11, 2019 Livonia, Michigan 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Back to Events Calendar

If you want to learn how to model electrolysis; electrodialysis; and electroanalytical methods in sensors, batteries, and fuel cells; this is the course for you. At the beginning of the course, you will get an introduction to the theory and applications of the Electrochemistry Module and Batteries & Fuel Cells Module. We will describe in detail the coupling between electric potential in the electrode, electrolyte, and electrode kinetics as well as the ability to combine multiple electrode reactions on one and the same electrode.

In addition, we will investigate the effects of chemical species transport on the electrochemical reaction kinetics. During the training exercises, you will learn how to account for ohmic, activation, and concentration overpotential. At the end of the course, you will also understand how high-fidelity simulations can predict the effects of electrode geometry, catalytic activity, material properties, and operating conditions on the performance of electrochemical cells.

Course Topics

  • Lithium-ion battery models: Simulation of charge and discharge cycles
  • State-of-the-art models of the lead-acid battery
  • Modeling of gas diffusion electrodes (GDEs) in fuel cells
  • Accounting for the bipolar plate structure in fuel cells
  • Electrolysis and electrodialysis
  • Electroanalytical method simulations, such as cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy
  • Lumped models and equivalent circuit models

Suggested Background
