Analyzing the Liquid Cooling of a Li-Ion Battery Pack
A sudden temperature increase or decrease can affect the efficiency of a lithium-ion battery. For the battery packs used in electric vehicles and other application areas, this can be a problem…
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry Celebrates Li-Ion Battery Research
John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino, winners of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, come from different places and researched lithium-ion batteries at different times.
Zeiss, Abbe, and the Evolution of Microscopes and Optical Research
The story of Carl Zeiss and Ernst Abbe involves a picturesque town in Germany, compound microscopes, and a hammer and anvil. See for yourself with a glimpse into the history of optical research.
Optimizing PID Controller Performance with COMSOL Multiphysics®
PID controllers involve three components that must work together simultaneously, and it can be challenging to get each of them just right. That’s where process control simulation comes in.
Understanding the Drug Reaction Kinetics of Nerve Guides via Modeling
Ever had a pinched nerve? Nerve guides repair this type of damaged nerve cell tissue. To design safe and reliable nerve guides, we can use simulation to understand their drug reaction kinetics.
Electrode Balancing of a Lithium-Ion Battery with COMSOL®
Electrode balancing is an important consideration for battery cell engineers. Get an overview and mathematical framework of this phenomenon and learn how to analyze it in a lithium-ion battery.
Taking a Look at Electrochemical Treatment for Tumors via Modeling
EChT offers many benefits for the treatment and removal of cancerous tumors, so why isn’t it a widely accepted method yet? First, we need a better understanding of tumor destruction mechanisms.
Evaluating the Electrode Utilization of a Lithium-Ion Battery Pouch Cell
Large-format batteries are found in energy storage systems; electric, hybrid, and plug-in cars; unmanned vehicles; light-rail trains; and more. We discuss modeling a component of these batteries.
