The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.
Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. To download the MPH-files, log in or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.
This application can be used as a design tool to develop an optimized battery configuration for a specific application. The app computes the capacity, energy efficiency, heat generation and capacity losses due to parasitic reactions of a lithium-ion battery for a specific load cycle. ... Read More
Lithium-ion batteries can have multiple active materials in both the positive and negative electrodes. For example, the positive electrode can have a mix of active materials such as transition metal oxides, layered metal oxides, olivines etc. These materials can have different design ... Read More
This application example is useful for investigation of the following: Voltage, polarization (voltage drop), internal resistance, state-of-charge (SOC), and rate capability, in lithium-ion batteries under isothermal conditions. Some of the listed properties play an important role in ... Read More
Electrode balancing is an important factor in the design of lithium-ion batteries. In this model, use the experimental open-circuit voltage of a cell and some basic assumptions, followed by an optimization solver, to find a proper electrode balancing. Get more details in this ... Read More
Large lithium-ion batteries are widely deployed in electric vehicles and for stationary energy storage applications. In the (stacked) pouch battery cell design, all current exits the cell on the cell “tabs”, and as the cell size and power increases, the voltage gradients in the highly ... Read More
This model describes the behavior of a lithium-ion battery unit cell modeled using an idealized three-dimensional geometry. The geometry mimics the structural details in the porous electrodes. Such models are referred to as heterogeneous models. The modeling approach for heterogeneous ... Read More
During an internal short circuit of a battery, the two electrode materials are internally and electronically interconnected, giving rise to high local current densities. Internal short circuits may occur in a lithium-ion battery due to, for instance, lithium dendrite formation or a ... Read More
Diffusion-induced stress in lithium-ion battery electrode materials can occur as a result of compositional inhomogeneities during lithium intercalation in the host material particles. These stresses are important since the electrode host material can undergo significant volume changes ... Read More
Due to the large differences in length scales in a lithium-ion battery, with the thickness of the different layers typically being several orders of magnitude smaller than the extension in the sheet direction, a lithium-ion battery is often well represented by a one-dimensional model. ... Read More
