Modeling Impedance in the Lithium-Ion Battery
Application ID: 17809
The goal with this app is to explain experimental electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements and to show how you can use a simulation app, along with measurements, to estimate the properties of lithium-ion batteries.
The app takes measurements from an EIS experiment and uses them as inputs. It then simulates these measurements and runs a parameter estimation based on the experimental data.
The control parameters are: the exchange current density, the resistivity of the solid electrolyte interface on the particles, the double-layer capacitance of NCA, the double-layer capacitance of the carbon support in the positive electrode, and the diffusivity of the lithium ion in the positive electrode. Fitting is done to the measured impedance of the positive electrode at frequencies ranging from 10 mHz to 1 kHz.
This application 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.
