Electric vehicles have progressed, but still face several challenges in battery durability and costs. Simulation of Battery Systems - Fundamentals and Applications covers both fundamental and technical aspects of battery systems, and solid reference on the simulation of battery dynamics based on fundamental governing equations of porous electrodes.Divided into five major parts; Part I considers the fundamentals of electrochemistry and obtaining electrochemical governing equations for porous electrodes, and thermal behavior of battery systemsPart II deals with adopting the governing equations with the physical characteristics of lead-acid batteries, along with the important issues relating to this type of batteries, with detailed numerical simulations of lead-acid batteriesPart III covers physical characteristics of zinc-silver oxide batteries and its numerical simulation along with its applicationsPart IV is dedicated to some experimental tests and provides parameters necessary for simulation and validation of battery dynamics. Part V looks at environmental impact assessment and techno-economic assessment of battery systems for different applications such as electric vehicles and battery energy storage. This book contains some introductory information, with most chapters requiring a solid background in engineering or applied science. In addition, battery industrial companies who want to improve their industrial batteries are our readership will find is useful.
