This course offers a hands-on introduction to CONVERGE for battery modeling. We will discuss how to set up air- and liquid-cooled battery pack conjugate heat transfer simulations in CONVERGE to investigate battery thermal management. We will go through the different approaches available to model heat generation within the battery solid. In addition, we will cover how CONVERGE’s SAGE detailed chemistry solver can model gas-phase combustion of vent gases ejected during thermal runaway as well as solid-phase thermal runaway chemistry. We will present a variety of case studies involving thermal runaway propagation and discuss approaches to run coupled vent gas generation simulations through user-defined functions.
*This session includes hands-on CONVERGE Studio practice.
