New Simulation Module Is Available For Batteries And Fuel Cells
Comsol Inc. announces the release of the Batteries & Fuel Cells module for Comsol Multiphysics modeling and simulation environment. This new, optional expansion module provides a full set of tools for the set-up, simulation, and study of all major electrochemical batteries and fuel cells, including lithium-ion batteries, nickel metal-hydride batteries, solid oxide fuel cells, and proton exchange membrane fuel cells.
With the Batteries & Fuel Cells module engineers, scientists, and researchers can investigate in deep detail the influence of different materials, geometric configurations, and operating conditions on the performance of batteries and fuel cells quickly and accurately.
The Batteries & Fuel Cell module enables integrators and developers of batteries, fuel-cell components, and fuel-cell stacks in such industries as transportation, green energy and consumer electronics to obtain accurate and reliable simulation results quickly. The Comsol Multiphysics environment is engineered to facilitate the simulation of multiple, coupled physical phenomena, making it an ideal platform for simulating the behavior of batteries and fuel cells where multiple, coupled physical mechanism are ever-present.
The Batteries & Fuel Cells module extends Comsol Multiphysics with predefined couplings of electrochemical reactions, flow, heat transfer, and electric fields. Users leverage this combination to set up and model the behavior of their battery and fuel-cell designs using real-world materials and operating conditions.
