Modeling Thermal Runaway in Battery Cells and Packs

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are the preferred choice for electric and hybrid vehicles, energy storage systems, and consumer electronics. One of the top safety concerns with Li-ion batteries is thermal runaway and its cascading effect through the whole pack. To predict thermal runaway, it is necessary to account for several different physical phenomena, including chemical reactions within the cell, heat transfer at the cell and pack level, the structural design of the pack, and fluid flow in the battery pack’s cooling system.

Join us for this live webinar to see how multiphysics simulation can help you to accurately model battery cells and packs, predict thermal runaway, and design optimized thermal management systems for battery packs. You will see demonstrations within the COMSOL® software.
