Potential Profile in Batteries and Electrochemical Cells

Application ID: 85661


The purpose of this model is to visualize the electric potential in an electrochemical cell, for example a battery. This is done at OCV and during operation. In a battery, this would correspond to OCV, discharge, and recharge. The potential profile is explained both for cells with planar electrodes and cells with porous electrodes.

The tutorial answers the question "Does the current flow backwards inside a battery?"

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
