1D Isothermal Lithium-Ion Battery
Application ID: 686
This model demonstrates the Lithium-Ion Battery interface for studying the discharge and charge of a lithium-ion battery for a given set of material properties. The geometry is in one dimension and the model is isothermal. Battery developers can use the model to investigate the influence of various design parameters such as the choice of materials, dimensions, and the particle size distribution of the active materials, in this case carbon on the negative electrode and lithium manganese oxide (LiMn2O4) on the positive electrode. You can also benefit from simulating battery performance under different operating conditions and in different devices, for example, cell phones or laptop computers.
