Thermal Modeling of a Cylindrical Lithium-Ion Battery in 2D

Application ID: 10221

This model example simulates an air-cooled cylindrical 18650 lithium-ion battery during a charge-discharge cycle, followed by a relaxing period. A lumped (0D) cell model is used to model the battery cell chemistry, and a two-dimensional axi-symmetrical model is used to model the temperature in the battery.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
