Each Batemo Cube Model is an electrochemical model of the cells active volume representing a fraction of the jellyroll. The heat and current transfer between single Batemo Cube Models, the cell exterior and passive components (cell housing or poles) needs to be modeled externally. Therefore, setting up a model of a real cell using Batemo Cube Models requires some expertise. The great benefit of the extra effort: you gain information about local distributions of all internal cell quantities. This helps you to understand, Identify and predict local hot spots for aging and safety issues and develop design improvements or optimized cooling concepts for the cell. On top, you can trigger local shorts manually or adapt the external model to see how your active material would perform in a different housing type.
Predicting the internal cell behavior with the Batemo Cube Model is easy. Just like the active volume of a battery cell, the Batemo Cube Model has an electrical and a thermal interface. The interface is designed to make integration straight-forward: Setting initial conditions is intuitive using the graphical parameter interface. Once a proper model of the other battery components is set up you supply the electrical and thermal boundary conditions and are ready to go.
This is how you simulate the dynamic performance of your battery cell under all conditions and predict local distributions of your internal cell quantities. Everything you can do with the real cell, you can now do with the Batemo Cube Model in your simulations. This is not only true for data you can measure in the laboratory. The Batemo Cube Model calculates additional, highly relevant internal cell quantities: inner temperatures, electrochemical electrode potentials or insights about loss generation.
