Physical Modeling of Supercapacitors and Lithium-Ion Capacitors

Title: Physical Modeling of Supercapacitors and Lithium-Ion Capacitors

Date: Thursday, May 14, 2020

Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

While lithium-ion batteries are the dominant rechargeable devices visible to the public and in the headlines, other electrochemical energy storage technologies will have a complementary role in industrial decarbonization. Supercapacitors, also called electrochemical double-layer capacitors, typically store less energy than lithium-ion batteries, but allow rapid delivery of very high power with high cycling stability. Researchers are increasingly exploring new hybrid devices, such as lithium-ion capacitors (LIC), which can exploit features of both traditional supercapacitors and lithium-ion batteries.

Edmund Dickinson is a senior research scientist at the National Physical Laboratory (Teddington, UK), specialized in the modeling of electrochemical energy storage devices. In this webinar, he will discuss key theories for physical models of supercapacitor and lithium-ion capacitor devices, and show how they can be implemented using the features in the Batteries & Fuel Cells Module, an add-on to the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. A Q&A session will conclude the webinar.
