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.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
