SOLVED! Quantitative simulation of battery aging

Your Browser doesn't support html5.

Math2Market, together with Prof. Wood's MaDE group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH), pursues the quantitative simulation of battery aging. This paves the way for more performance and longer battery life.

Get ready to explore new possibilities for the development of advanced digital battery materials!

Our approach is to analyze state-of-the-art NMC cathode and graphite anode microstructures. The experimental data is used to validate degradation simulations in which local volumetric changes and damage due to lithium intercalation are computed. New prototype materials can be designed and optimized following this method.

R&D GeoDict users will be able to simulate battery ageing upon cycling and design optimized prototype electrodes with superior performance and lifetime! With GeoDict, Math2Market intends to lead the way in battery simulation for a breakthrough in innovative energy materials for e-mobility and energy storage.

    First SOLVED! milestone reached

    We have reached the first SOLVED! project milestone and successfully developed our new numerical solver Battery-LIR (BLIR). The BLIR is faster and more memory efficient than the established BESTmicro solver. As we continue advancing in the project, we will be able to simulate battery cycling on the microstructure level, while considering volumetric changes in the active materials.

    These are exciting news! the BLIR will already be integrated in BatteryDict in GeoDict2021, to be released in September 2020. BatteryDict is the module of GeoDict dedicated to battery materials research and development. The BLIR in BatteryDict will speed up simulations of the charge and discharge behavior of a virtual battery, as well as enable the simulation on larger structures compared to the BESTmicro.

    And it remains equally exciting as we progress in the SOLVED! project. Now that the BLIR is integrated, we are pursuing to make available to all GeoDict users as soon as possible the cycling of the virtual battery and the simulation of the volumetric expansion of the active material during charging and discharging.
