Abstract

In this study, an axisymmetric computational lumped model is used to investigate the thermal and electrical behavior of a cylindrical Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery during various discharging processes at 0-20-50 degrees C operating temperatures. A typical cylindrical Li-ion cell consists of multiple spiral layers, on the other hand, the model employs the lumped battery interface approach in COMSOL Multiphysics to reduce the computational effort. In the lumped approach, layers of different materials are approximated as a uniform material with effective properties. Among other parameters, the Open Circuit Voltage (OCV) as a function of the State of Charge (SOC) is determined experimentally and used as input to the model. The model is then used to analyze the effects of the correlations of various parameters on the transient electrical and thermal responses of the battery and validated by comparing predicted results with experimental data.
