Our hands-on workshops will be coming to NTU on 29 March 2019 (Friday). Our workshops provide educators and those involved in research with a valuable opportunity to learn more about COMSOL Multiphysics and its many applications. With a brief introduction and live demonstration, these workshops are designed to cover the fundamentals of modelling simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics. The hands-on portion of the workshop allows attendees to test drive the software by building a model from scratch, allowing each person to leave with the ability to experiment with their own simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics.

Workshop: Simulating Batteries & Fuel Cells in COMSOL Multiphysics

Consumer expectations for battery capacity, weight, reliability, and power output are continuing to become more demanding, both for portable electronics and in high-power applications such as electric vehicles. Therefore, it is of great importance for engineers and researchers to use multiphysics simulation as a cost-effective solution for optimizing electrochemical energy extraction devices such as batteries and fuel cells.

This workshop will discuss how simulation, using the Batteries & Fuel Cells Module with COMSOL Multiphysics®, assists research and development engineers in modeling lithium-ion batteries, polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and other electrochemical systems. You will learn about fundamental electrochemistry, such as the modeling of reactions in porous electrodes, as well as the thermal and mechanical analyses required to realize a battery cell as a commercial product.

Key contents include:

  • Types of batteries and fuel cells
  • Batteries and fuel cell modeling interfaces
  • Thermal management in Batteries
  • Demo: Solid state lithium-ion batteries
  • Hands-on exercise
  • Q & A


  • This workshop will require you to bring your own laptop that runs on a 64-bit Operating System. Please visit System Requirements to see the minimum configuration COMSOL requires for installation.
  • Participants will be provided with a FREE 2-week COMSOL product evaluation license after attending the workshop.
