Mathematical and Numerical Modeling of Battery (ENE210)
The course gives an introduction to the application of partial differential equations (PDEs) for modelling transport processes involved in a prototype battery, with a particular focus on Lithium ion battery. The underlying physical laws that describe the exchange of lithium between electrodes and electrolyte in discharge/charge modus is described. Numerical discretization of the resulting system of PDEs is explored after first introducing basic principles for solving basic PDEs by numerical methods.The numerical simulation of such model can be used to illustrate the dynamics of lithium concentration distribution and predict the battery performance (voltage drop with time) which is important for designing battery (internal structure and material choices).
