Modelling Lithium Ion Batteries


I am working with colleagues on several projects modelling Lithium Ion batteries. Experimental results are fit to simple models of performance and "State of Health", a vaguely defined measure of the change of battery characteristics with use and age. This project is a collaboration with a local company, JTT electronics. Opening the hood of a battery reveals an interesting mix of multi-scale and multi-phase transport. Recent progress on categorizing models in the literature based on an asymptotic parameter, and computational approaches to the resulting structure, will be shown. All projects are "work in progress". Collaborators include Arman Bonakdarpour, Bhushan Gopaluni, Matt Hennessey, David Kong, Iain Moyles, and Tim Myers.
