Attendees will dive right into an introduction to theory and its applications to modeling of electrolysis, electrodialysis, electroanalytical methods in sensors, batteries, and fuel cells in the Electrochemistry and Batteries & Fuel Cells Modules. The coupling between electric potential in the electrode, electrolyte, and electrode kinetics are described in detailed together with the ability to combine multiple electrode reactions on one and the same electrode. The effects of chemical species transport on the electrochemical reaction kinetics are also investigated. Training exercises will show how to account for ohmic, activation, and concentration overpotential . You will learn how high-fidelity simulations can predict the effects of electrode geometry, catalytic activity, material properties, and operating conditions on the performance of electrochemical cells.

Content Overview

  • Lithium-ion battery models: simulation of charge and discharge cycles
  • State-of-the-art models of the lead-acid battery
  • Modeling of gas diffusion electrodes (GDEs) in fuel cells
  • Accounting for the bipolar plate structure in fuel cells
  • Electrolysis and electrodialysis
  • Electroanalytical method simulations, such as cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopys
