Electrochemistry

Optimizing the performance of energy storage units (batteries) and the efficiency of energy conversion units (fuel cells) is the key challenge in the profitable transformation of renewable energy sources into electricity.

Widespread interest has emerged to improve the storage of intermittent renewable energies, such as wind and solar power, or to increase the efficiency of portable devices for off-grid electrical use, such as those in hybrid and electric vehicles or in (prototype) fuel cell vehicles.

Merely keeping track of scientific developments, and applying them, is insufficient to remain abreast or even take the lead in this rapidly evolving field.

For leading companies in the electrochemical sector, in-house proprietary innovations are of vital importance to design the best-performing, most-efficient, lightest, smallest, and safest solutions for energy storage and conversion.

GeoDict for Electrochemistry

GeoDict® for Electrochemistry

Reach your goals efficiently

Simulations constitute a convenient and cost-efficient alternative to physical experiments which are generally difficult and expensive in time and resources.

With GeoDict, 3D models of the materials in batteries and in PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cells layers (GDL, MPL, CL) are digitally engineered and the decisive material properties of these models are characterized. The goal of the simulations is to optimize each of the materials to its requirements and improve the performance of the batteries or the fuel cells.
The central topics in fuel cell research, water and temperature management and the resulting two-phase fluid flow properties, are addressed in the GeoDict simulations.

Present your results

The post processing of simulation results can conveniently be done within GeoDict, which includes professional image processing and editing tools to create sophisticated, high quality video for the perfect presentation of the results.
