Deposition of metallic lithium on the negative electrode in preference to lithium intercalation is known to be a capacity loss and safety concern for lithium-ion batteries. Harsh charge conditions such as high currents (fast charging) and/or low temperatures can lead to lithium plating. This tutorial investigates lithium plating by using the lithium-ion battery interface to predict when and where to expect plating in a cell. The resulting capacity loss is predicted for different temperatures and charging rates.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
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.
